Fresh from Miss Hepplewhite's Young Ladies' Academy, sixteen-year-old Jane Peck has come to the unknown wilds of the Northwest to be wedded to her true love, William Baldt, her idol from childhood. But her socially correct upbringing in straitlaced Philadelphia is hardly preparation for the colorful characters and crude life that await her in Shoal Water Bay in the Washington Territory. Thrown upon her wits in the wild, Jane learns not only to cope, but to thrive-and to discover for herself whether she is truly proper Miss Jane Peck of Philadelphia, faultless young lady and fiancée, or Boston Jane, as the Chinook dub her, fearless and loyal woman of the frontier.
Drawn from historical material of the region, Boston Jane is a rich potpourri of adventure, humor, romance, and suspense, featuring a dashing new heroine who will win readers' hearts as she discovers the true desires of her own.
I love it
It's a little old fashion but good use
I'm a bit old to still love historical fiction as much as I do, being a history major in college, but this book is great. Good story, fun heroine, and, from what I can tell, a pretty accurate picture of a time. I also adore Jessalyn Gilsig. Overall, definitely worthwhile.
