One of the most important books about the Revolution in a long time...seriously. Start by thinking of the rebellion as civil war and then consider what became of 75,000 exiled Americans at war's end. Splendid writing and terrific research. ~ Reviewed by Bill Lewis

In 1776 the Continental Congress sent Silas Dean, a wealthy Connecticut merchant and a representative to the Congress, to France to plead Louis XV for financial aid. He was assisted by two Frenchmen but ran into more double-dealing, back-stabbing, dishonesty and fraud than he - or anyone - could imagine. An eye-opening book, well-researched and entertaining. ~ Reviewed by Louise Jones

While the Continental Congress debated in a steamy Philadelphia assembly room, a mixed bag of activists favoring independence, led by Samuel Adams, worked in secret to undermine the "reconciliationists" who wanted to remain with England. And we know who won! Fascinating history and characters brought to life. ~ Reviewed by Louise Jones
