Publisher's Summary

The British have invaded Charlestown and the Revolutionary War has descended with a vengeance upon the sleepy southern frontier. Oppression, privation, and fear overwhelm the villages and homesteads of North and South Carolina. The Patriot cause seems all but lost. 

James and John Hamilton are violently drawn into the war by forces seemingly beyond their control. Since their early childhood these brothers have survived rejection, hunger, death, tragedy, and loss. But will they survive the bloody onslaught and depravity of the Redcoats and their Tory allies? Can they spill the blood of their enemies and still hold on to compassion and humanity? Will they ever again know the peace of their humble cabin in the Carolina forest? 

Brothers and Warriors is the tumultuous, triumphant story of brothers fighting and surviving for home, justice, love, and freedom... and for one another.

Story Hour

Narration doesn't fit the story. Literation is more suited to children's books and Story Hour at the public library. Liked the story, but couldn't finish because of the performance. Do listen to the sample before purchasing. I didn't. My fault.

Historical Fiction Authentically Told

Geoff Baggett tells the story of a family swept up by the civil strife that occurred during the Revolution. Many times we forget that the Revolutionary War was not just a conflict between Americans and the British, but was also a violent conflict between Loyalist and Revolutionary neighbors. This is a story involving real historical events and real life people and accurately portrays life among early Americans and the hardships that were endured during the Revolution. Explicit acts of violence are graphically described, so consider this if buying for younger listeners/readers.

I love reading about the American Revolution.

The time period this book took place in intrigues me. This book brought out the horrible cases of brother vs brother. A very sad time indeed. I also liked that Geoff Baggett showed that even though they were fighting against each other, some of them were able to sit down to Christmas Dinner and not mess with each other. I did not know that went on. I do not believe that happened during the Civil War. I will be reading more of Geoff's books in the future. One thing I would also like to read is a book from one or more of the honorable Red Coats. Anyway, I recommend this book. Now for the obligatory: "I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review."

Historical Fiction Based on True Events

I received this book for free. I am voluntarily leaving this review and all opinions expressed herein are my own.

This is a fictionalized story using real people and events from the Revolutionary War. It is clear that the author has done a lot of research for this story -- from the accuracy of creating their bullets to their food to their homes to their way of speaking to medical care. This is an engaging story which is presented in a very realistic manner. As a warning -- there are battle scenes which include some graphic material and for those who are sensitive, there is a rape scene.

Here, the story centers around the Hamilton brothers. Their father has died and mother has remarried. The brothers do not really get along with their stepfather so they strike a deal with him to live on their father's farm and pay their stepfather a mortgage. The war has moved down to North Carolina. The eldest Hamilton brother, James, is called to serve for the Patriots. The rest of the story centers on the war and how it affects the Hamilton family.

The narrator, Bill Schafer, did a very good job [although his British accent could use a little work]. There are different voices for all of the characters and he moves it along at a good pace creating an interesting listening experience which enhanced the written word.

Worth the listen!

The story is engaging and keeps you wanting more about each character. Narrator starts hesitant, but gets rolling and presents an entertaining and animated story. Well Done!
