It's Monday, What are You Reading?

This is my first entry for this meme, suggested by Sheila@ One Persons Journey Through A World of Books.

I am now reading the new "An Abigail Adams Mystery" - The Ninth Daughter by Barbara Hamilton. It is tough reading at first, but grows on you (me, anyway!). I'm about half way through. She goes into great detail about life in the 1770s in Boston, just prior to the Revolution breaking out. The ship of tea is in the harbor! There is a grisly murder of a woman in the home of a good lady friend. Were the Sons of Liberty involved? The British Provost Marshall thinks her husband, John Adams, did it... but has no proof, of course. Abigail works with this British officer uncover the truth, as Sons of Liberty meetings are going on, and Abigail has her housewifely and community responsibilities to fulful. I'm a little more than half through; story is filled with great detail of household daily activities, the filthy streets, the bad weather, life on the dock and wharfs, etc., etc.

Happy Reading! ;-)
