True Freedom – How America came to fight Britain for its independence

June 11, 2019

We’re delighted to announce the publication of Michael Dean’s new novel True Freedom – How America came to fight Britain for its independence.

True Freedom is full of vivid period details, you can almost smell parliament in London or hear the clerks scribbling away in the American Department. So too, in Boston, you can picture Faneuil Hall, experience the might of the British navy in the harbour, and feel the grit and determination of the Boston people to defy parliament in London.

Together they form facets of the main character: the Boston uprising. The facts are all there but by focusing on personal relationships Michael Dean takes us right to the heart of identity and sovereignty.
