About the Author:
This was an enjoyable read about the stresses and strains placed on families and friendships during war. In this case it’s the Revolutionary War that threatens to tear things apart for Lydia Casswell. She is a daughter of privilege and the child of a staunch supporter of the British Crown. While not as ardent as her father, Lydia also leans towards England in the battle until she finds a man half frozen by the river on her property. He brings her around to the other side and she soon joins her friend in spying for the nascent United States.
The book is well researched and brings out the fear that underlies any spying mission. These girls weren’t trained. They weren’t anything other than society girls yet they put it on the line for a cause. The characters are well developed and the romance takes a back seat to the history which makes it an interesting read. It was a tumultuous time in this country’s history and I’m sure many families were torn apart with different feeling towards how it would all come to play. Ms. Dobson expresses that very, very well.
