This story was beautifully written and narrated and I am so sad it is finished. As I listened, it was easy to see the rich tapestry of history unfold and I felt so connected to all of the characters and especially Resolute. A truly remarkable telling of our history and the brave, forgotten individuals who brought us to freedom.

I took a chance on this book as I have never heard of this author. So glad I did. The author has a wonderful straight-forward no nonsense way of writing. She does not get bogged down in pettyfogging minutiae. The story flows in a pleasant way and keeps ones attention throughout the book.if you like the Outlander series you may like this book.
I highly recommend you give it a try. I’m going to read Turner’s other books!
