Bonnie Any good revolutionary war (USA) but with main characters or POV from the Loyalist/Tory side?

message 2: by Trish (new)

Trish Butler You can try The Devil Take Tomorrow. The main character is a 'rebel' but there are Loyalist/Tory POVs and good characters, not just bad ones.

It's a great read, I was up at night into the wee hours reading it.

Our group read The Traitor's Wife: The Woman Behind Benedict Arnold and the Plan to Betray America. Peggy Arnold was certainly a loyalist. It does have a romance piece just so you are forewarned.

Thanks Peggy. Redcoat sounds more interesting to me, so I'll add it.
