The paramount geographical place of importance is New York City. This is where Isabel and Ruth live as the property of the Locktons. This is also where Isabel is approached by Curzon to spy on the Locktons, Loyalists who know secrets about British plans. New York is also where Isabel learns that both patriots and Loyalists favor slavery and where she decides that her prime loyalty is to herself.
