Okay--let's face it, this book has shelf appeal! I bought this book without having heard of Roseanna previously, just because of the great cover. So, cover team--big score. I give you a ten!
Though there is a fragile peace in 1783 post Revolutionary War Annapolis, the effects of the war still simmer just beneath the surface in our country's capital. The sides chosen before the war are not easily forgotten and pull Lark Benton and Emerson Fielding into the center of the resolving conflict.
When independence is won and allegiance shifts, the citizens of our young nation were faced with choosing between duty and liberty. Roseanna does a wonderful job of highlighting how these challenges transformed our early national identity. I was challenged to think on this timeless idea of liberty and reminded not to take it for granted.
This book found a spot on my "keep this one" bookshelf. Overall, a wonderful mix of spiritual thought, romance, and early American history.

Coming Release, February 2013: Ring of Secrets
Culper Ring Series, Book 1
Love Has No Place in a World of Spies
1779—Winter Reeves is an aristocratic American Patriot forced to hide her heart amid the British Loyalists of New York City. She has learned to keep her ears open so she can pass information on British movements to Robbie Townsend, her childhood friend, and his spy ring. If she's caught, she will be executed for espionage, but she prays the Lord’s protection will sustain her, and Robbie has taught her the tools of the trade—the wonders of invisible ink, secret drop locations and, most importantly, a good cover.
Bennet Lane returns to New York from his Yale professorship with one goal: to find General Washington’s spy hidden among the ranks of the city’s elite. Searching for a wife was supposed to be nothing more than a convenient cover story for his mission, but when he meets Winter, with her too-intelligent eyes in her too-blank face, he finds a mystery that can’t be ignored.
Both are determined to prevail at any cost…and each is committed to a separate cause. Will God lead them to a shared destiny or lives lived apart?
