Oh...and George Washington as the personal deus ex machina of the hero? Bad choice. George had more important things to be doing.
If you in for a light, fast and feel good book, this is for you. If you're looking to sink your teeth into something, take a pass.
The first glaring error I spotted was in the description of "Mother". In chapter one, she's described as 5'8" and shrinks down to 5'3" in chapter two. Additionally, I felt "Mother" was written as a horrible person with absolutely no redeeming qualities just to be used as a reason why the main character had to go off to war.
I thought the character's interactions with "Father", were overdone, with their reasoning for the necessity of the American revolution being described in several lengthy, repetitive, and tiresome interactions.
Despite the author's statement that he took pains to maintain historical accuracy, there are many inaccuracies in the descriptions, including that the character takes matches with her when leaving home.
In the middle of chapter 3, the author inexplicably switches from writing in third person to first and back again.
There is a scene where it's described as raining, and yet while sheltering under a large tree, there's suddenly enough moonlight for the character to sew clothing.
Some sentences make absolutely no sense to me: "The blackest of black punctured it just enough to let the starry light of heaven through."
The above combined with the fairly predictable story line made this only an OK read for me.
