The American War for Independence from English rule had many cliffhanger moments. In the schools of the U.S.A. children learn the barest details and most important facts about that struggle. "Daughter of Liberty" by J.M.Hochstetler tells a tale that imagines what it must have been like to participate in an insurrection designed to gain the Colonies' right to self-government. Woven throughout the book is a love story that follows the faith journey of the two main characters, Carleton and Elizabeth, as they each take one step forward then back again learning to trust each other and God.
Daughter of Liberty is no light, read it in one sitting book. Rather it relates the early years of the fight for Independence through the medium of storytelling. It's a riveting read that takes hostages until the last page. This reader truly enjoyed reading this book. Loved it!
