About the Author

Sally Cabot Gunning lives in Brewster, Massachusetts, with her husband, Tom. A lifelong resident of New England, she is active in local historical organizations and creates tours that showcase the three-hundred-year history of her village. She is the author of three "Satucket novels" (The Widow's War, Bound, and The Rebellion of Jane Clarke), as well as the historical novels Benjamin Franklin's Bastard and Monticello.


"Well researched and beautifully written, this captivating novel tells the remarkable story of Thomas Jefferson's daughter caught up in two families' secrets. Highly recommended."--Paulette Jiles, New York Times bestselling author of News of the World on MONTICELLO
"If The Widow's War identified Sally Gunning as a masterful new voice in historical fiction, Bound confirms her place as one of the very best in the field . . . Her Satucket novels are destined to become classics." --Geraldine Brooks, Pulitzer Prize-winning author
"Gunning's writing is elegant, the period details exact."--USA Today on MONTICELLO
"[A] brilliant exploration. . . . Highly recommended as an engrossing tale of a strong woman in tumultuous times, with deftly interwoven historical details that make her trials all the more authentic."--Library Journal on MONTICELLO
"[A] highly researched and gracefully presented novel . . . [with] both muscle and drive."--Booklist on MONTICELLO
"Cabot shines in her descriptions of colonial life, in her fictionalized rendition of Ben Franklin's charismatic personality and wide-ranging intellect, but especially in interpreting Franklin the man through Anne, a fully-realized, memorable character. It is Anne who brings imagined reality's magic to the narrative. Intriguing historical fiction; a laudable interpretation of colonial life."--Kirkus Reviews on BENJAMIN FRANKLIN'S BASTARD
