The Revolutionary War has always been quite fascinating to me. The story line of The Tory Widow definitely sounded interesting, and while I did enjoy it in parts, there were other times it tended to drag on a bit. I've been particularly fascinated with the work of George Washington and his spy network. While this book did not have much to do with Washington, I did like the ideas of the war intelligence network and the role women may have played in such organizations. I do read for my own pleasure, but I also read to find books to add to my high school library. This is not one I will be adding. I found it a little crude in places, and feel it is definitely an adult historical fiction book. That being said, I can see myself wanting to pick up the second book, someday.
