Children of Liberty, the much-anticipated prequel to Paullina Simons’s The Bronze Horseman, is a story of love and possibility in turn-of-the-century America.
Gina Attaviano travels from Sicily to Boston to start a new life with only the clothes on her back. Harry Barrington is the son of one of New England’s most successful businessmen. Despite their differences and the strong opposition of their families, their attraction is strong. Set against a time of transformation for a growing nation, Gina and Harry must find the courage to do what is right, no matter what the price.
Deeply emotional and satisfying, Children of Liberty features a cast of characters you’ll root for as they fight against their feelings, but discover that true love can never be denied.
