Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An independent-minded young maid tells the story of social-climber Peggy Shippen and how she influenced Benedict Arnolds betrayal of the Patriot forces. Revolutionary Philadelphia is brought to life as Becca seeks to find her “missing pieces” while exploring the complicated issues of the war between the impoverished independence men and the decadent British Tories. “This tale of treachery comes alive under [Rinaldis] pen.”--Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

A fourteen-year-old maid witnesses the events that lead to General Benedict Arnold's betrayal of the American forces during the Revolutionary War.

For those of you who hate historical novels you neeeeeeeeeeed to read this book !!!!! You will have a completely different view of every other historical book you pick up. Its the story of Peggy Shippen and Benedict Arnold but you see it from an "undercover" view. Becca, like a lot of us, is trying to find herself and decide who she wants to be or as she puts it " find her missing pieces" when her mother finds a position for her in the house of the shippens she decides to go and see if she can "find her missing pieces" along the way she learns that these are not always things you can touch and what friendship means, this is a book you can not easily forget.
