Product Description

The thread of friendship is stretched to the breaking point…

With the spark of independence crackling in Colonial Philadelphia, Perdy Rogers chafes under the strict rule of her Quaker grandmother and the endless duties of her apprenticeship in Betsy Ross’s upholstery shop. So when her best friend shares a secret and invites Perdy to help plan an elopement, she’s thrilled to be with her friends again. But Perdy has no idea that one favor will unravel the stable fabric of her life and involve her in a tangled web of deceit, lies and treachery.

Disguised as boys, three girls head to the river to put Perdy’s plan into action, but only two return. When the third, a young milliner’s assistant, is found drowned with gold coins sewn into her hems, coded spy letters in her bodice, and a journal implicating another sewing apprentice as her co-conspirator, all eyes turn to Perdy Rogers. But she’s no spy!

Accused of treason, she struggles to prove her innocence with the help of a handsome stranger and learns the hard way that freedom, whether an individual’s or a country’s, comes at a cost.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great historical fiction 14 May 2017
By LitPick Student Book Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Thirteen-year old Prudence Charlotte Rogers’s life is lonely. While her friends are spending time together, she is apprenticed to Miss Betty Ross and spends all her time sewing. As you can imagine, she is delighted when her friends tell her they need her help. Her friend Priscilla is betrothed without her parents' consent and needs to travel across the Delaware River to marry. Prudence agrees to plan a distraction, and she receives a red ribbon from Priscilla in return. Prudence decides that she and her friend, Jane Ann, will dress as boys going fishing and pretend to be in grave danger, while her other friend, Lizzie, stalls her father, the constable.

The next day, Prudence is shocked when her grandmother tells her that Priscilla and James (Priscilla's husband-to-be) were found drowned in the Delaware River. A letter with invisible ink hidden between the lines was found on Priscilla’s dead body. Prudence becomes even more upset when the constable arrives at her house and accuses her of being a traitor. After that, nearly everyone shuns her, including her friends. Lizzie’s parents send her to a boarding school so that Prudence cannot interact with her. Jane Ann is forbidden to talk to with Prudence. This leaves her very lonely. To make it all worse, the constable calls her to court and because of her red ribbon, tries to prove her guilty. She turns to Jane Ann for assistance, but even Jane Ann betrays her. What will she do? Who will save her? And who is the REAL traitor?

Opinion:
Twice Betrayed is a shocking book about the danger of spies during the Revolutionary War. It mixes truths with myths and twirls it into a mighty whirlwind. The plot tugs on your heart and pulls you in with its intense action. The end is a perfect conclusion to a great book. Twice Betrayed by Gayle C. Krause will make you laugh, gasp, and most certainly cry. If you don’t read this book, you are missing a very enthralling, exciting, and amazing story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Historical Fiction 20 May 2017
By Amy - Published on Amazon.com
Thirteen year old, Perdy Rogers just wants to be like any regular teenage girl. She wants to be with her friends and enjoy the life of a young woman. That is easier said than done. Under the strict rule of her grandmother and working as an apprentice to Betsy Ross, Perdy finds she has no spare time to give. When shared a secret and is invited to help in a plan for her friend’s elopement, she jumps at the chance to be with her friends again. Little does Perdy know that this secret takes her down the path of lies, deceit, and treachery. She is accused of being a spy. Perdy is then on the journey to prove her innocence with the help of a handsome stranger. Will Perdy be able to prove to everyone she is no spy and that freedom comes with a heavy price?
I really enjoyed this story. Based during the time of the great American Revolutionary War and Colonial Philadelphia gaining independence, this is one of my most favorite time periods to read. I enjoyed the historical facts surrounded by Perdy’s adventures. I found myself turning the pages wanting to know what was going to happen and how Perdy was going to clear her name.
If you enjoy a simple cute read along with historical events this is the book for you. An easy read for middle grade historical fiction and all ages.
Please note I received a copy in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting 30 April 2017
By Bethany Swafford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Prudence Rogers is apprentice in Betsy Ross' upholstery shop. This young teen longs to have the freedom to spend time with her friends. When the opportunity arises to lend them a helping hand, she takes it, little realizing the consequences that will come her way.

I found the historical details of life in Colonial Pennsylvania to be the most interesting part of the book. Prudence, or Perdy as she is commonly known, was not especially memorable in any way. I felt like shouting at her, though, to stop telling lies and to tell her grandmother what happened. My favorite character had to be her much younger sister, who was adorable in every scene.

There were two points I did not like: the first person present tense telling of the book, which I've just never liked. And then the romance. I may be mistaken but I thought Perdy was thirteen, which made the romantic interest from the kind sailor who helps her through the book a little distasteful.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book through Loving the Book.
