“War was upon them. The best they could do was pray and prepare.”
The Daughters of the Mayflower series continues with a new book written by Kimberley Woodhouse. This story continues with another member of the lineage of the Lytton family whom we met in book one of the series.
Philadelphia was undergoing a great deal of patriot activity in the year 1774. Faith Lytton Jackson, 32 years old and widowed, finds herself stretching her courage and bravery to new depths as she works with the local patriot ladies group to quietly aid in undercover activities. Her activities include meeting with her fellow undercover agent, Matthew Weber, a young man putting his life on the line for the cause. In the midst of undercover activities hardly seems the place for romance, but love does not always need an invitation to come calling.
The story is sprinkled with references to well known historical figures and events such as George Washington and Ben Franklin and the Continental Congress. Keep in mind that it is a historical fiction novel with liberties taken with the characters. The plot twists and weaves its way through the tumultuous times of 1774 and into 1775, ending with an epilogue on July 4, 1776.
I loved the story. The American Revolution is one of my favorite time periods and this book lets one’s imagination run with the story. A truly enjoyable read that kept my attention from start to finish. Great read for lovers of historical fiction!
