The Patriot Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse ~ Review

Lucie's Review:

Faith Jackson grew up a ward of George Washington, and is faithful to the Patriot cause. A wealthy widow her situation allows her a certain freedom, and puts her in the perfect position to act as a spy for the Patriot cause.

Matthew Weber is a close friend with ties to both Benjamin Franklin and his Loyalist son, he finds himself privy to many secrets on both sides which makes him a perfect spy. Their work brings Faith and Matthew together, as they fight for their country's freedom.

Faith is a clever woman, who courageously steps forward to serve her country. Her connections and wealth, afford her the opportunities to make a different. She is true to her faith and very resourceful.

Matthew is daring, and honorable, he is dedicated to the cause, willing to fight for his country. He admired Faith for her courage and faith, he wants to do the right thing by her, even in the midst of a tumultuous time.

Slow to start it took awhile to really engage me, set in colonial times this book does take liberties with some historical facts in order to better facilitate the storyline. I didn't always enjoy reading Anthony Jamison's chapters, but I did see how it came to later enrich the story. Strong heroes fighting for their country, and strong faith.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
