More About the Author

Award-winning author Jane Hampton Cook makes history and biographies relevant to today's news, current events, issues of faith, and modern-day life. A public speaker and frequent national media guest, Jane is the author of seven books, including her newest work, American Phoenix (May 2013) about John Quincy and Louisa Adams and the War of 1812. She is also a former White House webmaster.

In American Phoenix, John Quincy and Louisa must form an alliance with the czar of Russia to end the War of 1812 and secure American independence once and for all. In many ways this Adams and his Eve's banishment becomes the nation's salvation. Their Russian destination changes US destiny.

Jane is the author of:
American Phoenix

Stories of Faith and Courage from the War in Iraq and Afghanistan (co-author)

Benjamin Franklin once quipped "If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead and rotten, either write things worth reading or do the things worth writing." Jane hopes each new book is increasingly worth the reading, each speech worth the hearing, and each TV segment worth remembering. She lives with her husband and two sons in Fairfax, Virginia. Jane is expecting her third child at the end of July 2013. www.janecook.com

Format: Paperback
Jane Hampton Cook, has compiled, and edited a unique collection of writings of inspiration and courage. These writings are from the years of the Revolutionary War, a period when a committed group of men and women joined forces in a cause to maintain a freedom to exercise the personal conviction of their faith.

Viewpoints expressed by key players of the Revolution are included in this amazing collection of inspiration and challenge. George Washington, Samuel Adams, Nathaniel Greene, Henry Knox, Benjamin Franklin, Martha Washington, Abigail Adams, John Adams, and King George III are among those that bring life to these individual examples of courage, conviction, and commitment.

Excerpts taken from original manuscripts, letters and speeches add greatly to the genuineness and authenticity of personal faith exercised in the decisions made during this period. These unique devotions include anecdotes that demonstrate the uplifting power of faith and reveal the personal battlefield of faith met by the leaders of the Revolution. The format of the book is designed for daily devotional use. Each week includes six days of stories built around individual faith and courage and are dsigned for reflection and contemplation. Each week includes a feature "The Revolution Today" directly related to incidents and issues relating to the war. The seventh day is dedicated to "Sabbath Rest" and features a sermon from a minister of the era. This is a book of patriotism and spiritual insight. It is the prayer of the author, Jane Hampton Cook, that: "As readers consider the meaning of the American Revolution, may they also experience a revolution in their own hearts one devotion at a time."

Format: Paperback
If I were lost on an island and had only one other book (besides the Bible) I would hope it could be; Battlefields and Blessings. I love the well-researched historical facts coupled with Biblical impact on every page. We live in an awesome country! What a great way to start or finish a long day. I thought I was well studied on the Revolutionary war but...every page was packed full of insights I hadn't a clue. I highly recommend this book for people who love Jesus and have an interest in our country's history.

Format: Paperback
Jane Hampton Cook does not know she is a magician. Generally, I don't like to read and history is a topic that is low on my list. I thought perhaps I could read this book since it was a gift and it had stories, essays and writings that were short, very short, which is a good recipe for me. But there were a lot of them so I began slowly. Amazingly I was caught up in the sights, sounds, conversation and convictions of the colonists in such a manner that I thought I was there.

But her tools were not secret concoctions and potions, instead she transformed the theater-of-my-mind through the writings, short writings mind you, of the colonists themselves. Not through Op-Eds but by presenting the actual words and thoughts written by those individuals who were experiencing the search of unencumbered life, simple liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Ms. Cook waved the magic wand of eye witness accounts that revealed the full spectrum of triumph, defeat and the boundless hope of those who demonstrated faith and courage in the revolutionary quest for "a separate and equal station" from England. As I followed the persevering trail of those pioneers of liberty I lost track of the shortness of the stories.

But I digress. You MUST read the book and take the journey - Abra Ka Dabra.

Format: Paperback
I purchased this book about six months ago and haven't put it down since. OK, I have put it down, but constantly pick it back up. It is there for when I am upset or when I am happy, when I need inspiration or when I feel inspired, and when I want to escape or want to be embraced. There are 365 different inspirational stories - one for each day. To be honest, I have cheated and read several in one day, but that is not a problem because the stories continue to inspire even when re-read. This is not just for Revolutionary War buffs or military war hawks, but for any person who wants to know what inspires Americans in any generation. Thank you, Ms. Cook.

Format: Paperback
Author Jane Hampton Cook provides a wonderful history of the Revolutionary War through this book. While it is formatted as a devotional with daily readings, scriptures, and prayers, it can also easily be read as a novel. Ms. Cook gives us a glimpse of what the Founding Fathers faced as they were forced to stand up and live loudly for the cause of freedom. By relying on the Founders' own writings, we get a glimpse into what they thought and felt as they came together to bring the United States of America into being. There are stories here from many of the better-known founders such as George Washington and Benjamin Franklin but also glimpses of the lesser-known yet equally important individuals that made up the revolution. She also incorporates a "Sabbath Rest" at the end of each week which features an excerpt of a sermon from the period. A great book for individual or family reading.
