The Excitement of Research

Finding the original letter written from James Lovell to his sons from the Boston Stone Jail in 1775 was only part of the fun in uncovering the story for The Remarkable Cause: A Novel of James Lovell and the Crucible of the Revolution.

Nina Sankovitch, author of AMERICAN REBELS: How the Hancock, Adams, and Quincy Families Fanned the Flames of Revolution, said this of The Remarkable Cause:

"Brimming with rich historical details, and pulsing with the spirit of the Revolution, Jean O'Connor's The Remarkable Cause does justice to a forgotten American hero, while deftly portraying the years leading up to the Revolution, including tensions between loyalists and patriots, conflicts between citizens and British troops, and anxieties within families, as the path to war became inevitable. A hugely enjoyable novel."
