Book recommendation: Bound by Sally Gunning

Bound by Sally Gunning
Set in the years preceding the American Revolution, Bound is an extraordinary novel about courage and independence as readers follow the story of a little girl who arrives in the American Colonies an orphan. Quickly indentured into servitude, she grows up in a caring home until she is sixteen when she is thrust into a world of unwelcome sexual turmoil from her new master, the husband of the young woman she has grown up with as practically a sister. She seeks sanctuary from a sympathetic widow in a nearby village and feels freedom for the first time, but all is not as it seems as her life and newfound independence are challenged by her past.
