This novel very well demonstrated how those in the middle of a war zone feel as they watch their loved ones head out to battle and the struggle with vengeful thought for the enemy. Ms Cooper used actual tales from people who lived through the battle of Menotomy Village, Massachusetts in April 1775 a few days after Paul Rivere's ride.
I was impressed with her single point of view in the daughter, Betsy. She went through the gamete of emotions very realistically in my opinion. So as not to spoil your enjoyment I won't outline the events which occur.
This book would be appropriate reading for strong readers from junior high age up even to any age adult.
I received an advance copy of this novel from the author for an honest review.
The book is available in Kindle and print on Amazon.
If you do decide to read it, please keep the challenge for indie authors getting noticed in mind and post a review for Elaine. Thanks
