About the Author:

The late Joy Day Buel was an editor and freelance writer.

Review:

“Engrossing family history, very well told.”
- Kirkus Reviews

“An admirable book about an admirable person. . . . Thoroughly engrossing.”
- Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post Book World

“A poignant, even heart-wrenching story. The Buels make clear just how disruptive the Revolution was in the private lives of families. It is a beautifully written, irresistible story that tells a lot about what the Revolution really meant.”
- Richard L. Bushman, Columbia University

“Vivid, splendid reading―reading for pleasure, for profit, for a sure grasp of the past that made the present possible. ”
- William Manchester
