The best book i have read in a long time -I bought this book after meeting the author and I thought I would give it a try. Wow...I could not put the book down. The story line is action packed and it keeps the reader guessing what will happen next. The characters are well developed and believable. Best of all the history facts are well researched and provide a beautiful background to a strong female lead discovering her world and her life. you must read this wonderful book ...but watch out... you may read it in one sitting!
-Great historical fiction! This book is a fun and exciting read. I enjoy historical fiction and you can tell the author did her homework and included lots of great color from the time period. There is a wealth of interesting characters from all walks of life and the book moves around from one location to another keeping the pace going till the end which does not disappoint.
-I was so excited to read this book because I had read Ms. Hughes' other book "Cliffs of Kerry". Her writing style is fun, exciting, and she keeps your attention from the first page to the last page. She has strong characters and lots of history that keep you spellbound.
--The story was fast-paced with many unforeseen events. I have researched the 1700's of American history and felt the author did a credible job of representing the dangers, hardships, and fear the early settlers experienced. They were incredibly brave and resourceful. Anyone looking for a sweet romance story may be disappointed. Romance takes a back seat to adventure in this book. I enjoyed reading this book.
--Very high energy book with lots of twists and turns. Her characters you can visualize and you are always hoping for the good guys. Great love story intertwined within the drama. This is a book you must read.Before I was even through the first chapter I was hooked on this book! I love Amanda's writing voice. I truly felt like I was inside the novel the entire time. A completely satisfying story all the way to the last word.
