Publisher Description

One of Book Riot's top 100 Must-Read Books of American Historical Fiction!

Nancy Turner burst onto the literary scene with her hugely popular novels These Is My Words, Sarah's Quilt, and The Star Garden. Now, Turner has written the novel she was born to write, this exciting and heartfelt story of a woman struggling to find herself during the tumultuous years preceding the American Revolution.

The year is 1729, and Resolute Talbot and her siblings are captured by pirates, taken from their family in Jamaica, and brought to the New World. Resolute and her sister are sold into slavery in colonial New England and taught the trade of spinning and weaving. When Resolute finds herself alone in Lexington, Massachusetts, she struggles to find her way in a society that is quick to judge a young woman without a family. As the seeds of rebellion against England grow, Resolute is torn between following the rules and breaking free. Resolute's talent at the loom places her at the center of an incredible web of secrecy that helped drive the American Revolution. Heart-wrenching, brilliantly written, and packed to the brim with adventure, My Name is Resolute is destined to be an instant classic.

My Name is Resolute

A beautifully written history of the Revolutionary War as witnessed by a young woman, born to royalty but lived an American heroine in her own struggles of daily living in a new and growing country. You will not regret purchasing or reading this exciting piece of literature. Thanks Ms. Turner for another delightful read!

Gripping Historical Novel

This book kept me on the edge of my seat. I couldn't help but turn the pages, chapter after chapter. It ended really pleasantly. I highly recommend this book and would love to see it hit the silver screen!
