Martha Peake: A Novel of the Revolution

Martha Peake did not originally want to leave England for America. However, she gets pregnant and takes off to America. She has some adventures and is killed. Later people respect her and Thomas Paine as they are fighting. The story is told from a narrator looking back. The setting is colonial New England, however it feels more like modern times with a bit of revolutionary-era name dropping.
