The central character in the story is Anne, who works as a servant for a Major. It is a place she has sought as a recluse from a troubled past, one that still creeps up from time to time into her thoughts. Specifically thoughts of her lover gone and of the troubles she has caused her family. Throughout the story, her strong willed nature is in full display, even as she had to endure further accusations against her. It is this that draws me to her as a very likeable lead.
I understand this is the second book of a trilogy, but the author has a nice writing style that makes the story easy to follow in itself. With that said, the ending was sort of a cliffhanger and readers will definitely be drawn to check out the third instalment as well.
As with most historical novels, it is important that the story meshes with the actual happening of history during that time. And to that, the author has done a fine job, portraying possible occurrences during that time. The plot was sound and there were even quite a number of "page turner" moments. A truly enjoyable read, and I would not hesitate to recommend this to others, especially those who like to read historical romances.
This is my second book by Kathy Fischer-Brown and I'm glad that I enjoyed it as much as "Winter Fire." Her writing is engaging and the story line flows. The heroine in this story, Anne Darvey, was a great character. The historical setting is the American Revolution and although this is the second book in the Trilogy I read it as a stand alone. I didn't feel that I missed out on any essential parts of the story. Although there are parts of Anne's story that are told in the first book, I essentially understood that Anne was sent to the U.S as an indentured servant despite the fact that she is the daughter of and English Lord. Anne is sent to live on a farm which is right in the middle of the conflicts that are facing the U.S during this time period. Anne is determined to find her lost love whom she was separated from previously. I loved Anne's bravery and her determination, although it was obvious that she was dealt some very unexpected turns in her life she never lost focused on her goal. I know that I would have benefited more form the story if I read all books in the trilogy that is why I will add the other two to my to-read list. If you're looking for a book that delivers a strong heroine, great history (American Revolution/ turmoil of the soldiers and the American Indians) this is a perfect read for you. I really enjoyed Fischer-Brown's writing and the entertaining plot she created. Great read and great adventure.
