During the turn of events, Margaret realizes that the pride she accuses Derrick of flaunting is only an echo of her own behavior. Both must come to terms with matters of faith, lifestyle, and prejudices which threaten any chance of future happiness.
Told through the eyes of both Margaret and Derrick, Patriot’s Pride is well-told historical adventure looking at rebel colonists from the eyes of the British, a humbling experience all around. Well done historic details makes this adventure a great read. Recommended for those who enjoy historical fiction with a little humor amidst matching wits, peril, and romance.
On the ship Margaret meets Derrick, a young doctor. She finds his ways arrogant, and he’s unwilling to believe in the ointments and common items she also uses to heal. He’s on his way to England to study and find a cure for sepsis that killed his brother.
Through several heart stopping events, they arrive at their final destination only to be met by an overbearing relative, lawyers, and a stipulation put onto Margaret that she is struggling to accept. The couple find themselves drawn to each other, but an unknown faction is attempting to tear them apart.
Ms. Marzec has brought this era to life in her descriptions and action packed scenes aboard the boat and once the couple has reached England. There’s a bit of danger, a bit of humor, and a delightful romance. Well done.
However, I struggled with Margaret and Derrick's story. There were a few good parts, but I really did struggle with the beginning. We have Margaret who is very spiritual, then we have Derrick who is a man of science. Both are on extreme spectrum and you wonder how on earth are they going to get together. Is Derrick going to have an epiphany that makes him see the light. Plus, he's a doctor there are somethings that better explain with science that believing that it's a higher power. Don't get me wrong, I do have religious beliefs, but it makes this story a little hard to grasp. So, the boat ride over to England is a little rough. When they touchdown on English so the story does pickup and I did start to like the story. Yet, there were a couple issues I had with the story. At times it felt a bit rushed. Eventually these two get their happy ending.
Overall, Patriot's Pride is probably not the book for me. I had a few issues with the story. However, there were a few things I like. For instance, I really liked Margaret's traveling companion, Mrs. Ulery. Now she had a salty personality that kind help Margaret see things in perspective. I love that she wasn't perfect and never proclaim she was. Mrs. Ulery was human with flaws like everyone else. So, if you are a person who loves inspirational reads, Patriot's Pride might be the story for you. It works for others, but not me.
