And you will surely be protected, my dear. For God cannot but shelter one with so pure a heart.

  -Willis Plains, Patriot

In this fourth novel in the series, Amber Lynn Perry continues her captivating tales set during the Revolutionary War. The war is under way in Plymouth, Massachusetts and weapons are in short supply for both sides thus making Ensign Young’s foundry a desirable place for the Patriots and Loyalists. Hannah Young, Ensign’s niece, is a lovely young woman who lives with her Uncle and late aunt as a result of a difficult home life.

The book follows the story of Hannah and Joseph Wythe, a young blacksmith, as they meet again for the first time in many years. Thrown together in a complex situation, Hannah and Joseph engage in a serious and deadly game of spying for the Patriots. Intrigue, politics, war, family relationships, and the cost of honesty are explored in this tale.

Many of my favorite characters have appeared again in this fourth novel, Nathaniel and Kitty from book two, as well as Anna and Henry from the last book. Their wonderful Patriot spirits shine through once again.

The historical detail in Ms. Perry’s novels always draws me deep into the time period. The accounts of Patriot spying are true to life and based on historical facts, even though the actual story is fiction. Faith, love, and a dedication to freedom are the pillars of the story set once again during a complex time in history.

A wonderful read for lovers of historical fiction, inspirational fiction, and romance! And if you are like me and are looking forward to the next one, So Bright a Hope, Book Five, appears to be in the works already.

There will come a time when we will be called upon to act in defense of the cause we believe in. It will not be enough to merely stand by and watch others do our fighting for us.

-Kitty Smith, quoting Henry Donaldson

Absolutely intriguing book to complement the first two in the series! The tension in this story grips the reader from the beginning and builds throughout the novel. Once again Amber Perry brings intrigue, family complexities, political turmoil, and relationship intricacies to her latest tale.

The series continues with the introduction of Anna Martin Rone, a young woman who is not quite what she seems to be upon her arrival in the colonies from England. This third book tells the story of Anna and Henry Donaldson, who we met in the second novel. I thoroughly enjoy being able to read about my favorite characters from previous novels in a series.  In this book, the reintroduction of past characters feels a bit like catching up with old friends you haven’t seen in awhile.

The Revolutionary War is beginning, and the siege of Boston plays a role in this novel. Once again faith in God and a belief and dedication to freedom and liberty, both political and personal add dimension to the story.

Read this intriguing tale of the early Revolutionary War to find out how Anna Rone and Henry Donaldson cross paths and unite to save themselves during a complex time in history. The intriguing ending surely hints at more to come! A truly enjoyable read for fans of historical fiction, inspirational fiction, and romance!

So True a Love, Book 2 by Amber Lynn Perry

Perry, Amber Lynn So True a Love

Series: Daughters of His Kingdom Series
Publication Date: January 2015
Publisher: Liberty Publishing
Purchased copy from Amazon.com

 

 

So True a Love continues the tale started in So Fair a Lady by relatively new author, Amber Lynn Perry. This story follows Kitty Campbell as she arrives to live once again with her sister, Eliza and her new husband, Thomas Watson, whom we met in the previous novel. After spending the last year in Boston with an aunt, Kitty returns to Sandwich as serious political turmoil begins to erupt in April of 1775.

The core of the storyline is based on a very real historical event called the Powder Alarm. I enjoy the time period and I feel that the historical detail in the novel contributes to the overall story. The instability and intrigue of the time period just prior to the Revolutionary War add suspense to the book.

The sisters have firmly different beliefs, Eliza, a patriot, and Kitty, a Tory. In spite of Kitty’s Tory beliefs, she finds herself drawn once again to Dr. Nathaniel Smith, fervent patriot and one of the town’s leaders in charge of munitions. Inadvertently drawn into a Tory plot in the town, Kitty is blackmailed in to aiding and assisting Cyprian Wythe, a notoriously unpleasant man that runs a local tavern.

Over the course of several months of friendship with Nathaniel and some serious reconsideration of her own inner self, Kitty begins to acknowledge the right to freedom and liberty. Follow Kitty and Nathaniel’s path to true love and adventure. A very enjoyable read that has me anxiously awaiting the third novel in the series due this spring!

This book was an amazon.com copy from purchased. The book review has been provided as an honest and unbiased review.
