With dogged fidelity, Peterson captures the spirit, manners, and social conditions present during the American Revolutionary War. We meet colorful, credible characters who navigate the high seas of life and love, dependence and independence, war and peace, truth and consequence, and despite forays into dark places, The Fiddler's Gun is beautiful, lyrical, and redemptive. A.S. Peterson has crafted a work of compelling historical fiction which begs the question, "Can this really be a debut novel?"----- Review from The Phantom Tollbooth
Great books like The Fiddlers Gun give a lifelike voice to historic characters on whose fictional shoulders we stand. We peer into Fins story through the eve and eye of The Revolutionary War. Theres her best friend Peter LaMee, her foe Sister Hilde; humor, romance, betrayal, grand ships, swearing sailors, pirates, gallows, Red Coats, Tories, and the hunger for American independence. Though within the epic framework, Fin just craves acceptance and love, to be an orphan no longer to belong. Here we have a book that is a New York Times bestsellers equal produced in the very fashion of redemption.----- Review from Curator Magazine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

America is on the brink of war with England, and Fin Button is about to come undone. She's had it with the dull life of the orphanage, and she's ready to marry Peter and get away from rules, chores, and a life looked after by the ever-watchful Sister Hilde. But an unexpected friendship forms between Fin and the fiddle-playing cook, Bartimaeus, which sets her on a course for revolution.
With Bart's beloved fiddle and haunting blunderbuss as her only possessions, Fin discovers her first taste of freedom as a sailor aboard the Rattlesnake. She's hiding some dark secrets, but there are bigger problems for the crewthey are on the run from the Royal Navy, and whispers of mutiny are turning the captain into a tyrant.
When Fin finally returns home, will she find Peter still waiting, or will she find that she's lost everything she once held dear? --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
