This novel is one of historical fiction, a tiny bit different from what I would normally read ( aka Amish) it was set in the Revolutionary War time, being a history buff that I am I thought I knew alot about history but as I got into this book it seems that I lost alot of knowledge that I should have gained in high school. So ti was kind of a refresher on how things use to be.
This story is about a young Quaker woman , Hannah trying to figure out what in life she believes and doesn't believe and somewhat questioning the believes of her faith. When her twin brother lands himself in jail as a rebel she decided to go against her faith a little and teams up with a wounded solider and local bar owner Jeremiah in helping the jail-mates plan an escape as she becomes "the messenger " will Hannah and Jeremiah succeed in their mission? You shall have to read to find out .
Like I said before, this is a little different that what I would normally read but I did really enjoy this novel and it kept my interest and I read it in a fairly fast manner which is always a way to tell how good a book is.
