Review by Blanche Mancuso
This is a great story that is penned in the Colonial area of the United States after the close of the war! Author, Laura Frantz, writes a compelling story of intrigue. I really loved this time period and how the author infused such life into her characters and the story. Which this is a rollicking story that once I started reading the book I could not lay the book down until I came to the dramatic ending. This book is well worth reading and picking up a copy for yourself. The author knew how to keep my attention in her unique way of story telling.
