From the secluded farmhouses of western Maryland to the capital city of Annapolis, intrigue and danger lay thick in the air on the eve of the American Revolution.
A young widow finds herself in the midst of pre-revolutionary fervor as she tries to make a better life for her two young sons. Enticed by a peddler to leave her home in a secluded Moravian community, she becomes entranced by the elegant sophisticated English society of Annapolis. Meanwhile, the peddler drawn to the city only for financial gain begins to find himself siding with the patriot cause.
Restitution is a richly detailed and exciting tale of everyday people who find themselves changing the course of history.
“Laced with humor and unusual characters that crackle off the pages, Dolan’s novel will enchant you….I found this book hard to put down.”
–Diane Scott Lewis, Historical Novels Review
“…a story of adventure, double agents, villains, and romance, in the years just preceding the Revolutionary War …intriguing, fast moving, entertaining, and informational.”
–Richard R. Blake, Reader Views
