The core of the storyline is based on a very real historical event called the Powder Alarm. I enjoy the time period and I feel that the historical detail in the novel contributes to the overall story. The instability and intrigue of the time period just prior to the Revolutionary War add suspense to the book.
The sisters have firmly different beliefs, Eliza, a patriot, and Kitty, a Tory. In spite of Kitty’s Tory beliefs, she finds herself drawn once again to Dr. Nathaniel Smith, fervent patriot and one of the town’s leaders in charge of munitions. Inadvertently drawn into a Tory plot in the town, Kitty is blackmailed in to aiding and assisting Cyprian Wythe, a notoriously unpleasant man that runs a local tavern.
Over the course of several months of friendship with Nathaniel and some serious reconsideration of her own inner self, Kitty begins to acknowledge the right to freedom and liberty. Follow Kitty and Nathaniel’s path to true love and adventure. A very enjoyable read that has me anxiously awaiting the third novel in the series due this spring!
This book was an Amazon.com copy purchase. The book review has been provided as an honest and unbiased review.
Nathaniel and Kitty hold strong and opposing views regarding the independence of the colonies versus fealty to King George--a principle she considered inviolable, being firmly rooted in the scriptures. As a result, Nathaniel is dismissive if not contemptuous of Kitty’s views and her right to hold them. There is a powerful chemistry between the two of them from the beginning, and the novel makes the point well that chemistry alone does not suffice. Nathaniel tries to unseat Kitty's firmly held core beliefs with teasing, flirting, charming, and eventually by ultimatum, little realizing that her views, though anathema to himself, are just as treasured by Kitty as his own are by himself. So guided, and irresistibly drawn to Kitty, he hurts her time after time in misguided attempts to alter her into a suitable lifetime companion. Each episode is followed by bitter self-recrimination, showing that though impelled to an extent by self-interest and a controlling nature, Nathaniel is a good man with a good heart, who simply didn’t know the whole reason behind Kitty’s actions, needing to understand Kitty's delicate nature and take a more respectful approach to addressing their differences.
Kitty’s views on allegiance to the king notwithstanding, through this part of the story Kitty appears to travel the higher road, accepting Nathaniel's oblique apologies and forgiving him though--because of Cyprian's sinister actions--maintaining a distance in their relationship for Nathaniel's own good. When Kitty's eyes are at last opened and the truth of freedom is illuminated, it is not Nathaniel’s well-intentioned but clumsy attempts to change her mind that opens her eyes. It is God who beams the light of freedom.
Apart from Kitty and Nathaniel, the most complex and interesting character is Cyprian, a vile manipulator whose evil actions are oddly motivated by a tender love for his terminally ill wife. One gets the idea that residing within Cyprian is a potentially good man, a potential never realized because of good intentions wrongly pursued, resulting in the ruin of his character.
Amber Lynn Perry has a wonderful flowing narrating style with a pleasant rhythm of movement between the various strains in the story and the values, motivations and interpersonal dynamics of the characters. I'll read every book she writes.
