My Review:


****4 stars

I Enjoyed This Narrative Very Much…

This was truly an enjoyable book detailing the immense amount of subterfuge and danger the Patriots and even the Tories, I think, encountered as they fought for what they held dear. I loved how Faith Lytton Jackson is set up as a friend of George Washington, so we get to see much of this early American hero. I also enjoyed seeing insights into Ben Franklin and the rift in his family, imagining the hardship this would cause as many families were likewise torn asunder.

Faith is indeed a very brave, very strong female protagonist. She has to be, to survive so much heartache and also to be the community leader that she is. It is no wonder that she volunteers for such a dangerous job. Sometimes strong women attract the wrong kind of attention. How I laughed at her encounters with Anthony Jameson and how full of himself he was! And how I hoped that things would work out with Matthew, but Faith has already lost so much, will she be able to trust again? And how can two spies find it to forgive deceptions and to trust when their lives have been all about misleading others?

What a great thing it was to me to see the author forego the lengthy lists of her first book. Gone are the long vocabulary lists and lists of who’s who that helped to get the first book of the series off to such a slow start. I did have to laugh; Kimberley Woodhouse just can’t help getting as much historical detail in as she can, and she found a sneaky way at the end to include a document!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and NetGalley. This in no way affected my opinions, for which I am solely responsible.
