Firstly, the story itself is interesting and inspiring. It shows the results of a thoroughly researched grasp of the time of the American Revolution, mannerism of speech and civilities of polite society in the period, and especially the devotion the patriots felt for the cause of liberty.
I will not synopsize the story in this review as that is available in other places, but the essence of the story in my view is the degree to which secrets deeply guarded in the presence of burgeoning love produce unrest and anguish for those who hide them. As Ms. Perry’s story bears out, the truth is a force of nature and eventually percolates to the top and becomes known--not only that the truth existed, but that it was deliberately concealed. And a parallel theme is that of forgiveness--pure, sweet, and healing--once the truth becomes known.
I’m no great fan of romance novels per se, but I appreciate a well-told story that includes a romantic theme, provided it isn’t too rushed in the telling or based too heavily on physical attraction. Ms. Perry “found the crease” by developing the romantic theme patiently and basing it entirely on the virtues of the characters. And the tender love story of Anna’s parents--so beautifully conceived and told, its loveliness preserved in the ring!
It’s a wonderful story and will stick with me for a long time.
Anna finds herself in an impossible situation and decides to accept the marriage proposal from a kind stranger. Henry has just assumed a new identity for safety purposes, but that doesn't affect who he really is on the inside. I love the bravery shown by each character and the way they gradually come to fan the flames of their mutual attraction. The romance is sweet and tender, yet has a few sparks that at times made me swoon. And I love to swoon! I found myself almost wishing to have been placed in a situation such as this, but I don't think I could handle the peril.
This author truly has a talent for telling a tale, while engaging the reader. I honestly haven't read a lot of books set in this time period and felt that I learned some history along with being entertained and I really enjoyed every page.
I'm reading these books out of order, but it doesn't really matter--they can stand alone. The integrity of the characters, as well as the way they handle the precarious situations that they find themselves in makes it worth the time invested in reading this series.
Content: mild+ religious elements; mild+ romance.

Patriots embody many shapes and forms in 1775 Sandwich, Massachusetts. Young and old, men and women, even boys; fighting in the shadows for freedom, a most precious commodity. When a beautiful young heiress, Anna Rone, accidentally enters the fray, her choice to escape England and pursue knowledge about her twin brother's untimely demise, places her in a compromising position, when she finds herself alone in a coach travelling deep into a forest.
Captain Henry Donaldson is injured and on the run when he unwittingly becomes Anna's savior, whisking her away to safety and delivering her into the company of trusted friends. Henry and Anna's secrets both run deep and in a moment of quiet desperation they decide to enter into the covenant of marriage, primarily to change their identities, but possibly because of their nearly instantaneous attraction.
Amber Perry has written a story that climaxes quite eloquently at just the right moment, filled with reminders about the myriads of brave men and women who risked lives, loves, and dreams to forge the freedoms that we so casually enjoy. Tender romance, clever acts of subterfuge and terrifying moments of suspense combine to make "So Rare a Gift" an exceptional book.
