Oh my, where do I begin? This was beyond anything I imagined. Learning history I didn't know through fiction is fun. I learned some real things about George Washington and Benjamin Franklin, who were some of the main characters in this novel, by reading the author's notes at the end. Fascinating! This was set during the Revotionary War with Paul Revere and Patrick Henry among others featured in the story. Faith and Matthew, the main female and male characters, however, were fictionalized. They were interesting characters. Faith was a woman to be reckoned with. Strong, opinionated, and a take charge kind of woman. I totally admired her. Matthew was working for the cause of the Patriots and together with Faith were passing coded messages back and forth. After all, who would ever think of a woman as a spy? British Soldiers were everywhere, so sneaking around in the dark was very dangerous. They pretty much laid their lives on the line with every rendezvous. But both were single with no children, no ties except to help the Patriot Army defect the British for American freedom. But it also helps make the story a little more interesting with a little romance. It was just a really feel good read and I throughly enjoyed it!
Each Daughters of the Mayflower novels progresses a little more with the history of this great nation and the sacrifices made to insure our freedom today.
