I really felt like I was in Boston while reading this book. I loved the John Hancock history and personality details, even if not everything was true, of course.
This is a great mix of historical fiction / mystery / romance. The story weaves between several characters in different eras, but manages to all make sense for a complete book in the end.
I could not put it down. Kept jumping back & forth from past to present. Loved the format & the characters.
I read a lot and it takes a lot to hold my interest for over 500 pages. This book did it in spades. Of course, historical fiction is one of my favorites. Throw in a mystery, a myriad of characters over a span of 200 years and you have a mix that's hard to beat in my opinion. I recommend this book for anyone who enjoys historical fiction and who has ever even visited Boston. I was sorry to see it end.
great escapist page turner. historical fiction. i lived in boston for 5 years and it was fun to read about places I'd walked.
Good historical fiction and good throughout.
I loved this book, it continues to show William Martin's talents as a writer.
Meet the Pratt Clan. Driven men. Determined women. Through six turbulent generations, they would pursue a lost Paul Revere treasure. And turn a family secret into an obsession that could destroy them.
