I thought this really *was* a fictionalized account of the building of the Brooklyn Bridge. But it is fiction set at the end of the 18th century (trhe Brookltyn Bridge wasn't completed until 1883) about a woman who, having already made a mark as the female owner of a distillery, tries to find a way to have a bridge built across the East River to Manhattan.
I love books like this with strong, eccentric female main characters.
