Peterson’s The Fiddler’s Gun is an exciting, rollicking adventure - it will touch the depths of your heart as its characters wrestle with human frailty, failure, love, and the quest for redemption. You will love this book, and you’ll read it over and over.”—Travis Prinzi, Author of Harry Potter & Imagination “Peterson is a natural-born storyteller, and The Fiddler’s Gun is a sly, funny, soulful, instant classic.” —Allan Heinberg, Executive Producer, Grey’s Anatomy “Peterson has lovingly crafted a work of historical fiction which begs the question, “Can this really be a debut novel?” With dogged fidelity, he captures the spirit, manners, and social conditions present during the American Revolutionary War. We meet colorful, credible characters who navigate the high seas of life and love, dependence and independence, war and peace, truth and consequence and despite forays into ostensibly dark places, The Fiddler’s Gun carries a steady pulse that is beautiful, lyrical, and redemptive.”—Curt McLey, The Phantom Tollbooth “Redcoats, pirates, orphans—and Fin Button, a passionate and savvy young woman who is a treasure all by herself. Here is high adventure that feels like truth. Three huzzahs for A.S. Peterson: The Fiddler’s Gun is an achievement.”—Jonathan Rogers, Author of The Wilderking Trilogy
“Like a vivacious child, it grabs your attention and runs away laughing, urging you to give chase. Don’t start this book when you have something important – like sleeping – to do; I guarantee, it won’t get done.”—Paula K. Parker, BuddyHollywood.com Revolution. Secrets. An Unforgettable Adventure.
America is on the brink of war with England, and Fin Button is about to come undone. She’s had it with the dull life of the orphanage, and she’s ready to marry Peter and get away from rules, chores, and a life looked after by the ever-watchful Sister Hilde. But an unexpected friendship forms between Fin and the fiddle-playing cook, Bartimaeus, which sets her on a course for revolution.
With Bart’s beloved fiddle and haunting blunderbuss as her only possessions, Fin discovers her first taste of freedom as a sailor aboard the Rattlesnake. She’s hiding some dark secrets, but there are bigger problems for the crew—they are on the run from the Royal Navy, and whispers of mutiny are turning the captain into a tyrant.
When Fin finally returns home, will she find Peter still waiting, or will she find that she’s lost everything she once held dear?
