Why did I love this book?
I have a girl-crush on Amy Harmon. Full stop. Period. She writes these sweeping, historical, amazing romances that I can’t put down and I’m completely hateful and jealous of her writing prowess.
And I’ll be even more honest and say that I don’t know anything (shameful!) about the Revolutionary War, and this book manages to give a history lesson couched in a love story.
So, thank you for that. In addition, it portrays a fictionalized account of a real woman who dresses as a boy to fight as a soldier, proving once again that if a job needs done right, give it to a woman.
Sorry, not sorry Charlie. This story is inspirational, thought-provoking, and extraordinary. As I was reading it, I could imagine every step of Samson’s journey and I fell in love, just as the General does, and just as you will.
