About the Book

"The Maid of Maiden Lane" is a novel written by Amelia E. Barr. The story is set in the late 18th century in New York City and follows the life of Dolores Penhallow, a young woman of Spanish descent who was orphaned at a young age and raised by her stern, wealthy uncle, Don Mariano. Despite her privileged upbringing, Dolores longs for love and companionship, which she finds in the form of Jacky Van Dam, a dashing young sailor whom she meets by chance. But, she has to fulfill her duties towards her family as well! How will she confess her love to him? Whom Dolores will choose for her life? Will they both be together? The novel offers a vivid portrayal of life in colonial America, with its social hierarchies, political unrest, and cultural clashes. At its heart, however, "The Maid of Maiden Lane" is a timeless tale of love and sacrifice, as Dolores must choose between her heart's desire and her duty to her family and country.
