Crow Hollow by: Michael Wallace
Review by: Linda Grischy
I thoroughly enjoyed this novel! The journey takes you deep into the world of 1676 New England.
James Bailey, an agent and spy of the King of England, is sent to Boston to investigate the details surrounding the death of Sir Benjamin Cotton, another of the King's agents. James and his trusted friend Peter Church, a Native American and Quaker who is traveling with him, quickly find themselves in a hostile land surrounded by danger.
Prudence Cotton, wife of the deceased Sir Benjamin Cotton, is anxious for the King's agents to help her find her young daughter, who she believes is living with the Nipmuk or Abenaki people. The characters are rich and lively, the setting wild and fascinating.
An adventure into the untamed New England territory ensues, as the truth of what happened to the village of Winton and Crow Hollow unravels.
