Freedom’s Light~Colleen Coble~

Freedom's Light by [Coble, Colleen]

 

~Synopsis~

Hannah Thomas left the South and all that was familiar to marry her beloved John. But the fact that she’s never been quite accepted by his mother and sister and that she doesn’t quite fit the strict Massachusetts Puritan community only becomes more difficult when John is killed in one of the first battles in the war for freedom. Hannah is allowed to continue to serve as lightkeeper for the twin tower lighthouses on the lonely coastline, but it is grueling work for a woman alone.

One of the first shipwrecks washes ashore a handsome captain she thinks is a Tory, but she soon finds out he’s working as a spy for Washington. Much stands in the way of their happiness including the need to protect his secret, pressure from John’s family to marry another, near-constant disapproval from the townspeople, and the appearance of Hannah’s wayward sister. Coupled with the strain of war, Hannah isn’t sure she’ll ever see the light of freedom.

 

 

~Review~

I haven’t read much by Colleen Coble and so when I saw this book, I was willing to give it a try. To say the least, the first few lines did not hold my attention at all. I always count on the beginning of the book to really pull me in so that I can have some hope of finishing the book.

It held my attention in the first chapter and then I just couldn’t finish the book. I was hoping to like this book because I love reading historical fiction but it was disappointing.

I’m not giving up on this author because I at least like to give authors two or three chances because I love reading Christian fiction. Overall, even thought the book cover was pretty amazing, this book just wasn’t my cup of tea.

A Daring Venture~Elizabeth Camden~

 

A Daring Venture (Empire State, #2)

 

 

*My Review*

This was an awesome read about the sacrifices that we take for granted in our everyday lives.

In this novel, we get to know more about Nickolas  which we was one of the characters in her first book in this
series, A Dangerous Legacy. Nickolas was a wonderful character and he was funny.
The heroine,Rosalind was a very interesting character to read about as well and I love how the author
writes about very smart and accomplished women and how they had to overcome obstacles back in the day.

I can say as with most of her books this novel really drew me in from the start.

I read this novel in about 2 days! That is how good it was!

The story was overall well written, romantic and funny to read. I highly recommend this author and
I can’t wait to read whatever else this author comes out with!
