Through the eyes of a fictional lady’s maid, the historical figures of Peggy Arnold and her husband, Benedict—yes, the traitor—come to life in this debut historical novel.... Clara and her fellow servants, who embody the spirit of the everyday patriot citizen, are written with detail and depth.
(Starred review.) A young lady's maid is witness to Benedict Arnold and his wife's treachery in this fictional account set during the American War for Independence.... Those familiar with U.S. history may already know how Arnold's saga unfurls, but the author's interpretation of events offers fresh perspective, plenty of intrigue and a host of interesting, multidimensional characters.
