Historical romance favorite Laura Frantz is back with a suspenseful story of love, betrayal, and new beginnings. With her meticulous eye for detail and her knack for creating living, breathing characters, Frantz continues to enchant historical fiction readers who long to feel they are a part of the story.
I just love historical fiction. This one is set during one of my favorite time periods- the revolutionary war. We lived in Virginia for a couple years so my connection to this time and place is even greater.
While the story had a very slow start for me, it kept growing in intensity and momentum until I got to the last third of the book where I could not put it down! I think the thing that appealed to me the most were the characters. I absolutely loved Liberty and Noble.
Liberty has such growth during this book. She goes from an unsure girl, feeling confined and controlled to a woman of strength and character, choosing her own path. I loved the feeling of empowerment that came with her growth.
Noble was so fantastic. He was everything you could want in a male hero. I loved his loyalty, his bravery and his compassion. He fought for the cause of freedom and that is always equals a hero in my eyes. I also loved how both Liberty and Noble were kind and thought of others even in the most difficult situations.
This was a good story! The words felt gentle and painted some vivid pictures in my head. I'll be looking forward to the next book from Laura Frantz.
