"This book is lovingly dedicated to my husband, Rick, and my two children, Ben and Charlotte. They endured with me while I wrote and revised and polished and sweated."

Book descriptionEdit

"October 13, 1774
The news was about the Patriots signing something... which declares that the people of our colony do not owe allegiance to our king any longer. It is true that he took away our charter, but that was in punishment for dumping that foolish tea. Now people say they will not pay taxes, and they will arm themselves. All I know is this: We have always been loyal to the king and shall remain so. Papa says, why should we change now? He says it would be like crossing the rive in a boat, and deciding halfway across to swim on the back of a horse. We are in this boat, this king's boat, an will stay in it....

Ms. Susan McGowan, interpreter, and other staff at Historic Deerfield who conducted an open hearth cooking demonstration.

This book could not have been written without your help."
