Summary
"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 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"--Provided by publisher

Summary
Only nine years old when she's kidnapped from her family's home in 1729 Jamaica by pirates, aristocrat's daughter Resolute Talbot is sold into slavery in New England, then taken prisoner by Native Americans, and finally sent to a Catholic orphanage in Quebec, where she learns to spin and weave. Although she regains her freedom, Resolute discovers that -- for a penniless young woman alone in the world -- survival may prove even more difficult than captivity. Starring a resourceful, resilient heroine whose adventurous life encompasses, among other momentous events, the Seven Years' War and the American Revolution, My Name is Resolute takes readers on an engrossing journey through Colonial North America. -- Description by Gillian Speace
