History Comes Alive,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Shadow Patriots: A Novel of the Revolution (Hardcover)
Shadow Patriots is another one of Lucia St. Clair Robson's treasures that you can't put down until you've finished it - then you hate yourself for reading it so quickly as you wanted it to last - and last - and last. Lucia has a wonderful way of making the cardboard figures of history come alive and show you the way it actually was in those days.
She tapped into a little known area of the Revolutionary War and not only brought the everyday people to life but she also has the talent and ability to make our well known figures human. She places them in their time and world - taking them out of the dry stuff of history lessons.
As usual, now I can hardly wait for her next book.
