Description: Broken by a tragic accident brought on by his own wild ways, Harry Peake makes the best living he can: exhibiting his grossly twisted spine before gaping crowds in London pubs. But the crippling pain and remorse for past deeds drive him toward the demon gin. His devoted daughter Martha finds she can no longer protect him -- or herself -- from the effects of his escalating rage. She takes refuge in the great house of the ghoulish anatomist Lord Drogo (who has his collector's eye on her father's very skeleton), but, racked by worry, she slips out at night to see the same man she is in hiding from. Until one night, when her mercy and compassion are crushed by the greatest crime a father can commit against a daughter.

Fleeing, Martha takes ship for Boston, and finds in that bracing climate a new home for body and for spirit, and a taste for independence as ravenous as her own. All around her the colonists -- with savage joy -- are shaking off the heavy hand of England. But even in this land of new beginnings, Martha finds her past is inescapable. Paradoxically caught up in a web of betrayals and reprisals, she makes one sweeping gesture that catapults her into legend and -- against all odds -- will prove to be the saving of the Revolution.

Not since The Quincunx has there been such a vivid rendering of the tumult and terror of the age. Patrick McGrath is the master of atmosphere, and here he transports you to the foundations of our history - and to a love story of agonizing tenderness.
