Review: NEW YORK by Edward Rutherfurd

new yorkCanadian Bookworm recently read and reviewed New York by Edward Rutherfurd for the American Revolution Reading Challenge 2013.  Here’s an excerpt:

The time covered here is 1664 to 2009 and characters include natives, Dutch, English, slaves, freemen, Irish, Italians, and Puerto Ricans. There are Quakers, Catholics, Anglicans, other Protestants, and Jews.

In the Revolutionary War period, we have a father and son on opposite sides of the struggle, and detail on the tax and representation issues that led to the war.
