Faith and Matthew have both decided to espouse the Patriot side, and to do it thoroughly. He is to become a spy in the ranks of the Loyalists, and she is to be his messenger. And so are brought together two people who have long known of each other through a mutual friend, George Washington. With war coming ever nearer and the stakes increasing, will they find the time to get to know each other? And will they overcome the problems besetting them in their efforts for the cause?
I wanted to like this, but in the end it was just okay. The time period covered was interesting, as I knew little about it, but the story didn't really hold my interest, the writing quality wasn't great, and the characters didn't feel real to me. The story itself was okay, but not a lot really happened, which seems sad for a story set in such an eventful time period. All in all, while not a bad book, it's not one that I would particularly recommend.
Characters: Felt somewhat wooden - and Anthony made no sense. Could anyone really be that arrogant and oblivious of all around him? I didn't really connect with any of the characters.
Storyline: Not bad, but not particularly eventful. I think I'll find the book fairly highly forgettable.
Content and language: Clean, no bad language, limited (non-descriptive) violence.
Message: Somewhat of a message to rely on God, but not particularly strong. Good to have in the background, and definitely didn't feel 'preachy' when present.
Note that I received a complimentary copy of the book from NetGalley. I was not required to write a positive review and this is my considered opinion of the book.

Matthew is everything you can ask for in a hero in a book. He is strong, handsome, and very dedicated to his beliefs and doing all that he can to support the cause. Throw in there the fact that he is always willing to protect Faith is just perfect.
The storyline is captivating. I was drawn into it and anxious to find out how things turn out for Faith and Matthew. It was a nice fictional story built into the history of the Revolutionary War. Seeing George Washington and Benjamin Franklin brought into the story and interacting with Faith and Matthew was wonderful.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading the author’s note at the end of the book to see what she had to say about the use of actual historical characters in her book. It was great to read her thoughts and see a glimpse into how she views history.
