Publisher Comments:

Fans of Boston Jane: An Adventure and Boston Jane: Wilderness Days will revel in the rip-roaring adventure, romance, and humor of this spectacularly spirited and satisfying conclusion to New York Times bestselling and two-time Newbery Honor–winning author Jennifer L. Holm's acclaimed historical fiction trilogy.

Seventeen-year-old Jane Peck is the darling of Washington Territory—more at home in a primitive pioneer settlement in the rugged Northwest than she ever was in the refined world of Philadelphia society. She's outwitted wild animals, vengeful ghosts, and a disloyal fiance, but when her finishing school nemesis Sally Biddle invades Shoalwater Bay, Jane discovers that the most dangerous thing on the frontier might just be an impeccably dressed debutant. As the Biddles charm their way into her close-knit community, Jane finds everything she holds dear threatened—including her true love! Will Jane's claim on happiness slip away?

Synopsis:

Jane Peck is a nineteenth-century girl with a mind of her own and a handsome suitor who loves her for it. She's outwitted wild animals, vengeful ghosts, and a disloyal fiance, but when her finishing school nemesis, Sally Biddle, invades the Washington Territory, Jane finds everything she holds dear threatened — including her true love, a rakish sailor named Jehu.

As the Biddles of Philadelphia charm their way into Jane's frontier community, it will take all of the spunk and spit she can muster to protect her land and preserve her dreams. Will Jane's claim on happiness slip away?
