I can't remember ever having read a historical fiction book set during the Revolutionary War so this might possibly be my first (I tend to read a lot of historical fiction about WWII so other time periods could really use my attention.). I have enjoyed this so far but wow Peggy is a bitch. She kind of reminds me of Scarlett O'Hara from Gone With the Wind except for Scarlett really loved her mother and Peggy doesn't seem to even like her mother. Clara seems so awestruck by Peggy and I think she will end up doing anything and everything Peggy tells her to do. Benedict Arnold has not shown up yet but he was just mentioned in a conversation.
