Pitting Britain against its own colony, dividing households into rebels and loyalists, the American Revolution was a family feud. Here the author of The Lowells of Massachusetts examines the intertwined lives of John Hancock, John Adams, Josiah Quincy Jr, Abigail Smith Adams, and Dorothy Quincy Hancock, arguing that their trajectory from loyal British subjects to American rebels began in childhood. Going Deeper, Nina Sankovitch shows how their deeply held convictions, founded in community, fueled their collaborations during the years leading up to the Declaration of Independence in 1776.

"[A] richly detailed and fluidly written account…. Sankovitch leavens her deeply researched account with wit, and presents a persuasive and entertaining portrait of life in colonial Boston."—Publishers Weekly
