Summary
In 1729, Resolute Talbot and her siblings are captured by pirates, taken from their family in Jamaica, and brought to the New World. Sold into slavery and taught the trade of spinning and weaving, Resolute struggles to find her way in the society of Lexington, Massachusetts. But as the seeds of rebellion against England grow, Resolute's talent at the loom places her at the center of a web of secrecy that helps drive the American Revolution
Summary
Only nine years old when she's kidnapped from her family's home in 1729 Jamaica by pirates, aristocrat's daughter Resolute Talbot is sold into slavery in New England, then taken prisoner by Native Americans, and finally sent to a Catholic orphanage in Quebec, where she learns to spin and weave. Although she regains her freedom, Resolute discovers that -- for a penniless young woman alone in the world -- survival may prove even more difficult than captivity. Starring a resourceful, resilient heroine whose adventurous life encompasses, among other momentous events, the Seven Years' War and the American Revolution, My Name is Resolute takes readers on an engrossing journey through Colonial North America. -- Description by Gillian Speace
