A melancholic story with a happy ending, Samantha's Secret moved at a fairly slow pace. The book dealt with issues that we face today even though the setting was during the Revolutionary War in about 1790. Decisions made for the sake of expediency generally come back to bite one as many of the citizens of Charles Town found out when they decided to swear allegiance to Britain during the occupation by the British army. When it came time for the return of American rule, those same citizens found t ...more

I received a copy of this book from ebook discovery in exchange for an honest review.

Set at the end of the War of Independence this story, though it can be read as a stand alone, the background from the first two in the series will give more background to the characters involved. The choices our heroine Samantha has to make and what happens around her through the book may cause a tear or two but there are also a few smiles along the way.

Although her world is about to change drastically with the

This is a dramatic and traumatic story with some romance. I have to say that I do not like Trent at all. He is pompous, condescending and unfeeling. I do love Samantha though. She is sweet, strong and brave. The storyline is interesting, it shows a glimpse of all the changes, good and bad, that happened right after the revolutionary war ended.
I received this book for free from eBook Discovery. I voluntarily post this review. This is my honest review.

This is the third book in this series and the story of how Samantha and Trent fall in love. Again in this book you get to read more about the characters from the first two book in the series. You get to learn more about Samantha's past and the reason why she made her vow to not marry in the first book. Samantha is the town midwife and healer. Trent has just finished school and moved back. he plans to bring his new medical skills to town and open a hospital. The first time he sees Samantha

I strongly suggest you read this series in order; not only because the books follow one another with no lapse of time, but because you will want to get to know the background and personalities of each of these strong female friends. This trilogy is an adventurous exploration of life in an occupied seaside city during the final months of the Revolutionary War.

It is a historical romance and also a mystery.
The human interest elements will make you examine your own thinking and opinions. A story of

There was a whole lot to love about this historical romance – a strong heroine, a determined hero, and a nice glimpse of the past that was told through the story. There was also a great cast of supporting characters that added additional depth to the story and circumstances. I really enjoyed the way that the events of the time were woven in to the story, showing the challenges that had to be faced every day, and it was interesting seeing the struggles that the citizens of a new nation faced, no ...more

Beautiful story of a strong and smart heroine!
Samantha's Secret, written by Betty Bolté, tells the story of two people, involved in the field of medicine but occupying two completely different occupations. The heroine Samantha is a midwife and a healer and the hero Trent, a doctor. At that time, midwives were not really fully recognized by doctors and they had to work hard to prove it. Samantha is smart, brave and strong, but Trent is headstrong too. Both have different views on how to heal the

When I sit down to write, the goal for my historical stories is to bring the lives of people in the past to life for my readers. I write both historical and contemporary stories featuring strong, loving women and brave, compassionate men. No matter whether the stories are set in the past or the present, I love to include a touch of the paranormal. In addition to romantic fiction, I've written seve ...more
