Freedom's Light by Colleen Coble ~ Review

Lucie's Review:

Hannah Thomas married her husband John out of convenience to get away from her family and the arranged marriage they had planned for her with a wicked man. She moves with her husband to the Massachusetts Puritan settlement, where he is the lighthouse keeper. But the safe haven that she thought that she had found is disrupted when her husband killed and she is left to run the lighthouse by herself.

One day a handsome captain washes ashore in a shipwreck, Hannah believes him to be a Tory, but in fact he is a Patriot spy. Hannah offers sanctuary to Birch while his wounds heal, she challenges his quest for revenge and encourages him to rediscover his faith.

This book covers a large span of time, and multiple characters, with a lot of plots twists, for me it felt like too much was going on and was squeezed into this one book, making it hard to keep track of and a slower read for me.

Hannah is an admirable character, with a big heart and strong faith. She is resilient in the face of adversity.

This book follows a lot of characters, and there is quite a lot going on. I didn't care to read so much about the villain, Galen. And I didn't like how most of the Puritans were portrayed so villainously.

I really wanted to like this book, everything just felt so rushed to me. So it was hard for me to get to know the main characters as much as I would have liked to, and Lydia's story just made me sad. A tough book to get through.
