The Revolutionist is a great piece historical fiction. I was captivated with it right from the start. The author obviously did his research before writing this book. I was fascinated with the details and setting. Once I picked it up, I did not want to put it down until I was done reading the whole book. It is full of suspense, adventure, action, mystery and intrigue.
I give The Revolutionist a well deserved 5 stars and hope to read more by this author in the future.

He really wants a l

Two of these families are the Josephsons from Sweden and the Wohlman brothers from Germany, both of whom took refuge in America. The Josephsons settle on a farm in Minnesota,

When an author takes on the challenge of writing Historical fiction, the biggest hurdle the author faces is getting the details down as accurately as possible. Not every writer of historical fiction can be a Herman Wouk, or a John Jakes, or a Hilary Mantel. Or even a Dan Brown. It's always a case of "the devil is in the details". Fortunately, in his work The Revolutionist, Robert Tucker gets the details of the times right. For reasons that belong elsewhere, I read The Revolutionist a total of 5 ...more
