Author Presentation: Jean C. O’Connor at Newfield Library

July 15 @ 6:30 am - 8:00 am

Jean C. O’Connor will present about her historical fiction novel, The Remarkable Cause: A Novel of James Lovell and the Crucible of the Revolution (Knox Press, 2020) at the Newfield Library on July 15, 2021, at 6:30 pm. Based on primary source research, the novel tells the story of James Lovell, teacher at the Boston Latin School, and his father, Master John Lovell, at the time of the escalating conflicts in Boston which became the American Revolution. Book signing will follow.

David O. Stewart, author of George Washington: The Political Rise of America’s Founding Father, says, “In her novel, The Remarkable Cause, Jean C. O’Connor uses Boston and a true historical character (James Lovell) to explore the many layers of America’s revolutionary experience. Through sympathetic, memorable characters, the book illuminates the painful conflicts among American loyalists and patriots that tore apart many families and neighbors, along with the intrigue, fighting, idealism, and suffering that comes with the well-known curse of living in ‘interesting times.”
