Description: It's 1777, and a fledgling country wages an almost hopeless struggle against the might of the British Empire. Brought together by a fateful kiss, Anne Merrick and Jack Hampton are devoted to each other and to their Patriot cause. As part of Washington's daring network of spies, they are ready and willing to pay even the ultimate price for freedom.
For love and for country, all is put at risk-and together the pair must call upon their every ounce of courage and cunning in order to survive. (via Goodread.com)
Thoughts: Book was ok. I felt that it was a book that really picked up in the final third of the book and dragged for most of the book. The story flowed nicely and while I wished I was able read the book before this, the story was adequate enough that one didn't really need to read The Tory Wife, as there was enough information given throughout the book that you at least understood the basics of Anne's backstory.
Bottom line: I would recommend the book for those that enjoy historical fiction and have read any of the other two books by Christine Blevin.
