Reviewed in the United States on November 18, 2013
Many books are about love or war, and sometimes both. This novel is much more than that. It begins on a small farm and has many twist and turns within the family. (No spoiler). Sarah and her brother, Silas left the farm and joined the war. Many women followed their husbands into the war. Sarah followed her brother. The world of war: cold winters, frozen and bloody feet, hunger, pirates, prisons, torture, and love. A beautifully written story of Sarah Fanum's life during the war and what she did to help many soldiers. The story surprisingly turned into a spy novel that also included trying to capture a prison ship. How can the main character, Sarah, possibly do all of these things- or did she accomplish anything she set out to do? The author, Lynn Hubbard, has written this amazing book with many opposite intricate things, yet, wound together perfectly. It takes an author with the finest writing skills, true facts mixed with a great imagination and tons of research- plus an obvious love for her work, is Lynn Hubbard. This is an intricately woven story of true devotion, you cannot stop reading- a definite page turner! I read many books, yet there are few novels that I can actually "see" the writing and visualize the scenes. Her writing is smoothly written with details that allowed me to "see" everything. This is a fantastic novel and definitely a keeper on my shelf. Highly recommended.
