I'm an impatient reader. If my interest isn't peaked right from the get-go, or if the author's writing style isn't appealing, I simply don't continue reading the book. Both of the Loyalist books drew me in immediately and this got me excited!

The Loyalist's Luck is a wonderful sequel! It's one of the best I've read in a long time. It picks up right where The Loyalist's Wife left off and takes the reader to Canada with a group of loyalists escaping the American Revolution.
