I love this period of American history, and it was cool to get this perspective on the beginning of the Revolution.

Cons: The author tends to repeat certain phrases a lot. I also didn't really care for the big jumps in chronology near the end of the book. The overall premise feels similar to that of The Work and the Glory, but the writing isn't as good as Gerald Lund's.

Pros: An interesting story, and the author isn't afraid to hit us where we hurt. I learned a lot about the early stage of the American Revolution, and the author includes notes explaining the actual history and where he got his information.

Not my favorite book in the series, but the series gets better in later books.
