Full Review:

This is a book that I got frustrated with early — and it never really improved for me. As a preface, I should say that I really am not much of a fan of Christian literature. I get frustrated with the idealized personification of the characters — even in their extreme challenges and difficulties. This, in turn leads to a real disconnect from the characters in general. That was exactly the case in this one. Clearly, I should have read the descri
A compelling love story set in the midst of the American Revolution. Morris throws the readers into the confusion and danger of the 18th century dispute through the eyes of a protagonist quite indifferent to the cause... at first. With cliff-hangers at every chapter, I could count the number of sittings it took to read this book on one hand! The love story, though somewhat predictable, is still captivating and has a happily ever after that will please anyone!
This was little different story for me but loved it, Rees was a strong character and I was happy that he helped the young girl get out of the life she was in, it took him long time to realize what a good young woman she was and how she had grown into a remarkable woman that he had falled in love with. Good story. I have read Gilbert Morris before and he did not dissapoint me in this story.
It's amazing to me how fluidly Gilbert Morris grew each of the characters over time and 2 countries. The underlying love story was sweet, but by far not the only enjoyable aspect of this book. I love historical novels, and always find myself researching and learning from these types of books.

One I picked off the shelf at the beach (never knowing what you will find!). I am thinking Morris is a Christian fiction writer and I don't get much into that, but this book was enjoyable. It is set in the American Revolution time in Boston.
I was pleseantly surprised by this book. It is written by a Christain auther, so be aware of that. The story was really sweet and easy for me to want to keep reading.
Pretty good except for the romance, which included way more kissing than appropriate (especially for characters unmarried and not intending to marry each other).
Lindsay Porter
A Christian novel that includes a lot of American history. Great read.
I loved the historical content of this book. Very good story.
