Barbara Hamilton (aka Barbara Hambly) tells a terrific story, a rather complex one that plunges the reader into the cold, the squalor, and the drudgery of everyday life in pre-Revolution Boston. There are several interesting characters--I hope Coldstone and Muldoon will return in future books--but Abigail Adams herself is the most convincing. She is a woman sustained by her devotion to her husband John and to the cause of liberty, and by her faith and her friendships. It is one of these friendships that causes her to investigate the mystery that's at the core of the book, the disappearance of a friend with ties to the Sons of LIberty. This is an entertaining read, with a little painless history added, and I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.
