Johnny Tremain

By Esther Hoskins Forbes (5)

Fourteen-year-old Johnny Tremain is growing up during the Revolutionary War era. Esther Hoskin Forbes’ novel, named for its protagonist, follows the fortunes of the young apprentice, who is under the tutelage of silversmith Ephraim Lapham. Arrogant and impatient with other apprentices, Johnny is also very talented, and old Lapham wants him as a husband for his daughter, Cilla. One day, John Hancock comes to the shop with a commission for an elaborate silver bowl, and Johnny rashly takes on the job. That night, he tells Cilla he is kin to the wealthy Boston merchant, Lyte. When injured, Johnny becomes a delivery boy for a Whig newspaper, and is drawn into the world of politics through his friendship with the idealistic Rab. An encounter with the Tory, Lyte, leads to Johnny’s imprisonment, but he is cleared of the charges, and recognized as a legitimate heir of the Lyte family. The death of Rab leaves Johnny bereft, but later a doctor offers to perform corrective surgery on Johnny’s bad hand, with the hope that in the future Johnny may hold a musket in defense of his country. Hoskin’s historical novel is an excellent coming-of age story.
