Lyn Cote is a talented author who not only writes stories but also paints vivid pictures of people and places. Reading this book was like watching a movie!
Honestly, though, I did not like Christiane's character. She is selfish and impulsive, and her rash decisions often led to turmoil for her and others. She leaves her infant son for years, while she is searching for a better life for herself, partly because she wants certain luxuries! As a mother, with an infant son, I cannot relate or understand that decision and at times Christiane's actions seemed unjustified or inconsistent with her character. In the Kindle edition that I read there were some typos and other inconsistencies.
I did enjoy the story. I loved the historical setting and the historical characters included. All of the historical detail (about places, people, clothing, etc) is extremely interesting. The story moves along quickly with a lot happening. The minor characters were as vivid as Christiane, and I liked all of them. My favorite scene is when Emma, a young lady with a hare lip, discovers that she is loved. The conversation was honest and heartwarming. I also appreciated the Quaker characters and the love they portrayed.
This one was good, but not my favorite. It is definitely worth reading for the historical aspect.
In 1776, fleeing violence again Christiane, accompanied by her newborn Jean Claude, travels to Rumsveld Village. Jakob Kruger wants the lovely widow whose husband she claims died from a bear attack. Christiane is confused when Jakob, Tom and others discuss Washington's army jut outside Boston as that is quite a distance from this Western New York Colony settlement. She becomes Mts. Kruger while a massacre devastates the villagers. Forced to leave her son behind, she travels to Pennsylvania where she meets her Captain John. A pregnant Christiane soon finds herself in Mount Vernon with General Washington's wife Martha.
Book one of the Patriots and Seekers Revolutionary War era thriller is a great tale due to a strong cast and held together by a wonderful brave protagonist. Readers obtain a taste of life in the rebellious colonies through the trials and triumphs of courageous Christiane. Lyn Cote writes an engaging saga as epic events sweep La Belle Christiane struggling to survive the tsunami of war.
