Mystery at the Raleigh Tavern

Cover Mystery at the Raleigh Tavern

When Thomas Jefferson’s violin is stolen at the Raleigh Tavern, he’s worried, and not just about his violin. The violin case also contained some notes he’s written saying treasonous things about the King. The thief must be found, and quickly, but the Sheriff thinks he already knows who the thief is – and he’s arrested Amelia’s best friend.

Meanwhile other fateful events are taking place. In the aftermath of the Boston Tea Party, Jefferson and others are meeting at the Raleigh Tavern to decide how to protest the Parliament’s actions and protect their rights. There is strange, troubling talk of something called “independence” – talk that will change Amanda and Amelia’s world forever more.
