Reader recommendation: Independence, by Kate Kasserman

Independence, by Kate Kasserman, Center 61, 476 pp.

Independence by Kate Kasserman leaped to the top of my book queue when I read the opening sequence and could not put it down. It's an insightful look at
a critical time in US history. The history serves as a backdrop for a good story with characters so well crafted you feel as if you have adopted them.
