To make a review that should be rather long rather short:
The plot was nothing unique or fantastic, but the characters kept me fairly interested. There was a Christian message that was (usually) carried fairly well without being cheesy or preachy.
I wouldn't discourage anyone from reading this, but it also wasn't just a thrilling read. It's an okay story, somewhat predictable in places and slightly inconsistent in others, but an entertaining enough read. Those interested in the revolutionary war will find the little details interesting. I enjoyed it fine, but don't think I'll be rushing to read the other books in the series.

The action moved pretty quickly and the storylines flowed well. Some characters were more interesting than others. The main thing that kept this from being great was the ending. I understand the author was trying to write a series and continued the story into the next book, but this one just seemed to end. One plotline was wrapped up (sort of), but then it kind of wasn't. I'm not a fan of cliffhangers. I expect some sort of resolution when I read a book. I will probably try the next book to see what happens. Shudder. Where do I begin? This was, without a doubt, the worst historical fiction I have ever read. Stuffed with ludicrous situations, far too much action in far too little time, clunky dialog, and tacky characters, this awfully written story almost made me sick.
The plot line was definitely fastpaced, only there was so much packed into it that it was quite unbelievable.
The characters could have been good if they had been given believable actions and voices.
The writing was so atrocious and the book was so full of mature material that I felt sullied. It wasn't REALLY historical, either. There were chapters of all historical material, that really didn't have much to do with the characters or the plot.
I was very disappointed and have found that his writing does not improve anywhere else. Please do not read this, you'll regret it. Great collection of historical novels. I would not normally read a book like this. I am not much into history, and have found the only history type books I like have to have a lot of romance in them. I needed a book that fit into my reading challenge, and this was one of them. To my surprise, I really enjoyed this book. I think because there was another story line that went side by side with the history, it made it enjoyable. I am a bit disappointed though. I found out after I finished this book, that the next book I am unable to find on audio. I am visually impaired and can not read a book, I have to do them via audio... I am going to be on the hunt for the next one in audio. It is England 1743 and 15yearold Daniel Bradford and his younger sister live a difficult life, experiencing poverty, grief, cruelty and near starvation. When tragedy strikes, Daniel is sent to Dartmoor prison. But the adventures are far from over and include a runin with the American Revolution. I thought I would try one more series by this author… Historical Fiction set in the time of the American Revolution. The first book was pretty good, the second went downhill, by the third chapter of the third book, I realized I was reading nothing more than an 18th century soap opera. And there are 7 books in this series! Egad! No more Gilbert Morris for me! Good story.
Love of God.
Ready to read the next book.
