I absolutely love this book! I didn’t want it to end. It has romance, intrigue, treason, murder, and mystery, everything I ever want in a book. This book takes place in the 1700’s around the time the Colonist are getting ready to revolt against the British. I honestly couldn’t put this book down. For a Christian Romance it was very refreshing and well written. I can’t wait to read another book by Jody Hedlund.
Because she’s a woman, higher learning was always closed to Susanna Smith. But her quick mind and quicker tongue never back down from a challenge. And she’s determined to marry well, so she’ll be able to continue her work with the less fortunate.
Growing up with little to his name, poor country lawyer Benjamin Ross dreams of impacting the world for the better. When introduced to the Smiths he’s taken by Susanna’s intelligence and independent spirit, but her parents refuse to see him as a suitor for their daughter.
When the life of a runaway indentured servant is threatened, Susanna is forced to choose between justice and mercy, and Ben becomes her unlikely advisor. But drawing closer to this man of principle and intellect lands her in a dangerous, secret world of rebellion and revolution against everything she once held dear.
