The Secret of Sarah Revere by Ann Rinaldi.
Gulliver Books/Harcourt, Inc: NY, 1995.

Paul Revere's daughter, Sarah, is on the verge of womanhood as her father is riding for the Sons of Liberty. It is rumored that Paul saw who fired the first shot at Lexington, but he refuses to say who it was. There are other secrets as well to which Sarah would like to know the answer during this explosive period. It is a tense and heartbreaking time for Sarah who so wants her family to recover from her mother's death.

This is one of the best historical novels I've read in a while. The questions Sarah deals with easily make it a strong story for today. The factual connections do not detract from the story at all and even are intriguing enough to be the story without the psychological and relationship intricacies.
