      Hello, all. I am a new member to your group, and I'm excited to tell you
      about my new novel, The Midwife's Revolt. I am an author and 18th
      century American history junkie. I look forward to getting to know you,
      and to participating in some of your discussions. In case you are
      interested, here is the release information about my book, which is
      available at Amazon.com and will soon be available on Kindle and in
      bookstores. Those of you who are interested in the American Revolution,
      18th century American women's history, and literary fiction, you are my
      ideal audience, so I truly welcome your feedback!
      Based on painstaking research, The Midwife's Revolt takes the reader on
      a journey back to the founding days of America. It follows one
      woman's path, Lizzie Boylston, from her grieving days of widowhood
      after Bunker Hill, to her deepening friendship with Abigail Adams, and
      finally to her dangerous work as a spy for the Cause. Much has been
      written about our founding men. But The Midwife's Revolt is unique
      in that it opens a window onto the lives of our founding women as well.
      Pre-publication praise for The Midwife's Revolt:

        Dear Jodi,
        Welcome to the list! I also am an 18th century American history junkie, but love any era of American history, and also write historical novels. My latest completed one is a bio novel about Martha Washington. Please visit my website, www.dianarubino.com if you get a chance.
        My most recently completed bio novels are about Hamilton and another one about Aaron Burr and his last wife Eliza.

        Happy Thanksgiving! Diana
