Kelly I think this might be my favorite of the Williamsburg novels.

message 3: by CLM (new) - rated it 5 stars

CLM By capitalizing Patriots, I realize I created an image of Julian hanging out with a bunch of football players instead of Patrick Henry and Francis Marion...

Bethany Got your recommendation--I have a feeling this has been floating somewhere in the "to read" pile for quite a long time. Maybe I'll tackle it for July 4th! Thanks for thinking of me.
