Liberty and Destiny: A Novel of the American Revolution

Jessica James
Historical Romance

"You just couldn't tell about people these days.  Not even women.  Especially not beautiful ones."

Amid the war-torn country, Sophia Adair is caught between the loyalists she lives with and the cause she believes in.  But she has a plan.  With the intelligence she learns at home, Sophia hopes to turn herself into a spy and help those who are fighting for the country she wants.  Colonel Grant Morgan doesn't want to trust Miss Adair any more than he'd want to put her in danger if her desire was in earnest.  But how can he avoid a woman intent on giving him inside information on the movements of his enemy?  As they balance a fine line of war and intrigue, will they find a way to keep love, and themselves, alive?

My Opinion:  This was a fun and quick jaunt into the past and through the American revolutionary war.  Sophia is a wonderfully spunky and wholly dedicated patriot to the revolutionary cause.  I would have liked to know the basis for her motivation, but she was a constant and wonderful character I felt like I could relate to and stand in her shoes.  Grant is a lovely character balancing his duty and his desire to protect Sophia from the rough war he is involved in.  I'd love to have heard more of his history as well, but it was sadly missing.  However, their relationship is sweet and wonderful and I was rooting for them all along.  I'll admit, while reading, a few tears were shed, a few breaths were held, and my patriotism was pumped up by a few levels.  Though I would have loved this to be four times as long (that may have been the history buff in me), it was a wonderful read and one I would highly recommend.

I received a free copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and review are 100% my own.
