Rumblings of discord abound in 1856 Boston. Northern abolitionists bellow as the South roars to protect its “peculiar institution” of slavery. Recent immigrants, especially the Irish, rage against the prejudices of established citizens. Demands for equal treatment of women grow ever stronger.
The third book in this four-part series, A Peculiar Peace continues the saga of Jack and Guine, begun with the California Gold Rush adventure Embracing the Elephant.
