From the author of The Anarchist and Cold―a gripping historical novel set during the American Revolution.

With the outbreak of the American revolution, Abigail Lovell's family is torn apart―while her schoolmaster father is an outspoken loyalist and prominent figurehead in the community, she and her two brothers engage in acts of espionage to undermine the British forces in Boston. Her sickly older brother, James, operates the patriots’ spy ring while Abigail acts as a courier, eluding increasingly aggressive British patrols. Meanwhile, her younger brother, Benjamin, slips out of Boston to fight alongside Abigail’s love, Ezra, in the battles at Lexington and Concord. With the help of her friend, Rachel revere, Abigail smuggles money and supplies out to Benjamin, Ezra, and other revolutionaries.

But when a British sergeant is found murdered, Abigail stands accused, and she now must fight to save herself and those she loves. in the tradition of Sally Gunning’s Bound and Diana Gabaldon’s An Echo in the Bone, The Schoolmaster’s Daughter is the story of a family torn asunder―and of a determined young woman who must make courageous decisions if she is to aid in liberating her country.

Review:

John Smolens has written a historical novel with the quick-beating heart of a thriller. Written in crisp, cinematic prose, the novel has echoes of the best noir. — Dan Chaon, author of Await Your Reply

A fine writer with a profound knowledge of human behavior gone awry. — Jim Harrison, author of Legends of the Fall

Smolens has written an intelligent, first-rate thriller, as though Sinclair Lewis was fused with Alan Furst. — Tom Bissell, author of The Father of All Things
