*Book Review in the Middle of the Page
A gripping, heart-wrenching story of love and betrayal across the boundary of the American Revolutionary War. The next captivating story for readers who loved My Dear Hamilton, Flight of the Sparrow and Outlander.
1780. Addie looks around at the soldiers celebrating their latest victory. American independence is within reach, but her heart feels heavy with grief. With her husband gone, she must leave the army camp, and the people she has come to love, and choose a respectable path to guard the secret she now carries alone.
Seeking shelter with her aunts in Virginia, Addie tries to mold herself back into the proper and dutiful woman she was before the war, and before the love of a fierce, dark-eyed warrior changed her forever. But when a band of rogue British soldiers arrives on the farm, will the strength she has gained from travelling with the Revolutionary army be enough to save her loved ones?
Fighting turmoil in Virginia, Addie faces an even worse trial when terrible news arrives from the front: should she stay silent and keep her family safe, or divulge her secret and save an innocent man’s life?
This is the third book in the America’s Daughter trilogy. An end to the war may be in sight, and Addie travels to Virginia to stay with her aunts and share her secret. The history of the Revolutionary War, its aftermath, and the life of George Washington is well documented and woven into the story by Celeste De Blasis. The story of Addie and her brothers is thrilling and engaging. The history of the war is sometimes related through Addie’s twin, Ad, who is working directly with George Washington. This gives us a fascinating window inside the life of George and Martha Washington and their inner circle. My only slight criticism is that Addie’s family and others are very accepting of her secret, which is not quite realistic for the time period. Overall, this story will transport you back to the American Revolutionary War, and the characters will keep you captivated and intrigued. This book is highly recommend for fans of historical wartime fiction. I received a free copy of this book via Bookouture. My opinions are my own.
