So Bright a Hope
When Caroline Whitney receives word that the brother she thought was dead is in fact a prisoner of war, she is frantic to rescue him. On the way to find help, she hides from the Redcoats, but is quickly discovered by a rugged British soldier who claims she must go with him, or be tried for espionage. The world would tell her this man is the enemy, but the veiled secrets in her captor’s eyes reveal he is more than he seems. If she fails to trust, more could be endangered than her life—her heart is bound to be broken a second time.
As a double agent in the service of Washington, British Captain James Higley must keep his true convictions a secret or face being killed as a traitor. On his newest mission, he discovers a courageous woman hiding in a barn, and is forced to capture her, or both their lives will be in jeopardy. When she offers her compliance in exchange for help in finding her brother, he accepts, despite his inner warnings. He must keep his distance from this alluring Patriot, or risk revealing not only his identity, but the true feelings of his heart.
My thoughts: This book is excellent! I love how Amber brings this war time story of espionage and courage to life through her characters. The Revolutionary War was such a huge time of change, with the breaking away from all this country had ever known to venture into the unknown. I really enjoyed getting to know Caroline and James, since they were both incredibly brave. The story is hard to put down, with the fear of their being exposed! I highly recommend this story for both historical fans and those who like suspenseful stories.
I received this book from Just Read tours. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.
