My Name is Resolute by Nancy E. Turner
The heart-felt story of a woman struggling to find herself in the years preceding the American Revolution. In 1729, Resolute Talbot and her siblings are captured by pirates, wrenched from their family in Jamaica, and taken to the New World. There, they are sold as slaves and taught the trades of spinning and weaving. Eventually Resolute finally finds herself alone and tries to find her way in New England society. As the seeds of rebellion grow, however, her talent in weaving place her at the center of a web of secrecy that drives the revolution.
