The characters are so very complex yet at the same time very real and relatable. I can easily see where Lydia feels trapped and why she seeks her way out of her situation the way she does. I can also see that Daniel Reid has things he needs to work through before he can choose whether or not to return home to Mohawk Valley. Maybe that is why he takes on the dangerous mission that he does. A romance between the two seems unlikely but I felt like this was where the author, Angela K. Couch, shines. Her ability to bring these two through so many obstacles had me on the edge of my seat, reading and swiping my Kindle pages as fast as I could.
There are many twists, turns, and surprises in this novel, you won't want to put it down until you read the last page.
I have to say, this is book two of a series but can easily be read as a stand-alone book. You will want to go back and read "The Scarlet Coat" though.
Lydia Reynolds is a strong, determined character, but she plays a dangerous game in this novel. Having lost the last member of her immediate family a year ago when her sister died in childbirth, all she has left to her is a cottage bequeathed by her maternal grandparents—in Brighton, England. Despite her brother-in-law having inherited her father’s shipping business, he refuses to give her passage on one of his ships. And so she strikes a bargain with the British major billeting with them: She will furnish him with information regarding the Swamp Fox in return for passage to England.
Daniel Reid is the key to getting this information, but in order for him to trust her, she convinces him that she, too, is a patriot, and supplies him with carefully tailored information on the British in return for information on the Swamp Fox’s whereabouts. But Daniel is both too trusting and too noble; he doesn’t want to share any information that might endanger Lydia. Lydia, on the other hand, quickly becomes all-too-aware of how much she is endangering Daniel’s life.
The plot builds to a massive crisis of conscience and loyalties for Lydia as she realises just how deeply ensnared she has become by her own game. There were several points in this novel that had me at a complete loss as to how the story could possibly resolve satisfactorily, and yet when it came, the ending was both gripping and completely believable. The romance built up slowly but surely and became an integral part of why the ending was as gripping as it was. And through it all, Lydia searches for the God her mother had known, but who has never taken a prominent place in her own life.
This was a fabulous second instalment in the 'Hearts at War' series, and I can’t wait for the third.
I received a copy of this novel from the author. This has not influenced the content of my review.
