Fresh from Miss Hepplewhite’s Young Ladies’ Academy, sixteen-year-old Jane Peck has come to the unknown wilds of the Northwest to be wedded to her true love, William Baldt, her idol from childhood. But her socially correct upbringing in straitlaced Philadelphia is hardly preparation for the colorful characters and crude life that await her in Shoal Water Bay in the Washington Territory. Thrown upon her wits in the wild, Jane learns not only to cope, but to thrive—and to discover for herself whether she is truly proper Miss Jane Peck of Philadelphia, faultless young lady and fiancée, or Boston Jane, as the Chinook dub her, fearless and loyal woman of the frontier.

Drawn from historical material of the region, Boston Jane is a rich potpourri of adventure, humor, romance, and suspense, featuring a dashing new heroine who will win readers’ hearts as she discovers the true desires of her own.

    " Completely unrealistic, but at the same time very good. I liked how the main character grew through hardship, and how the author included a lot of historical details. It's probably the pregnancy hormones, but I cried a lot in this book! "

    " I first read this series when I was in 8th grade, so it's interesting for me to reread it 7 years later as a junior in college. I defintely enjoyed this book more as an 8th grader because the plot is aimed at a younger audience. As I read it now, I am struck by the implausibility of some of the happenings. However, I still like this book-it is well-written and historically accurate. I also like the way the author uses different chapter titles from an etiqutte book that is discussed in the novel as actual chapter titles in the book...and the best part is that the chapter titles actually relate to what's happening in the chapter! How cool is that? It's almost as if Holm based the happenings in each chapter around the etiqutte chapter titles to show how etiqutte rules fly out the window in light of the wildness of the American frontier. "

    " I just finished the first book in this series and what a cute, fun book! I'm excited to read the others. I love the main character and narrator Jane, she reminded me a little of Anne Shirley. Thanks for the recommendation Angie-loved it! "

    " I totally read through this book very quickly, and am planning to read the other two books in the trilogy. It is not only a good historical read, based on historical records, but it is a book to draw you into the character. "
