Praise for 355: The Women of Washington’s Spy Ring
- “Superbly researched and well-written, 355: The Women of Washington’s Spy Ring is a remarkably skillful blend of American Revolutionary War history and modern women’s fiction.”
- “Once I started this book, I didn’t want to put it down- it pulls you in and keeps you reading. It’s vivid details make you feel like you’re right alongside with the characters…”
Who was the mysterious woman whom Washington’s chief spy said “could outwit them all?”
Was it Meg Moncrieffe, the British sympathizer who turned to spying after being spurned in love by Aaron Burr? Was it Elizabeth Burgin, the widow who helped American soldiers escape the notorious prison ships? Or perhaps it was Sally Townsend, the high-spirited sister of a Culper Ring member who listened at the keyholes of British soldiers quartered in her home. Although 355 is fictitious, it is heavily grounded in facts and real-life events, such as Benedict Arnold’s treason and the hanging of John André. The cast of characters also includes George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, Peggy Shippen, and, of course, the male members of the Culper Spy Ring.
