This book struck me as very unusual, captivating, unique, and tactfully written. Not only that, it is also packed full of action, suspense, and a little bit of horror. What really made this book stand out to me were the descriptions. Brodeur used just the right words to fully describe the various places, whether a gruesome site for hanging criminals or a church towering imposingly on a hill. The descriptions truly paint a vivid picture in the reader’s mind.
Perhaps the mention of a ghost makes you hesitant to read the book. Yet, while there are some frightening and horrifying parts in the book, this is what makes the book an exhilarating and enthralling read. Christian truths are also woven into the story to teach valuable lessons. I guarantee you’ll be disappointed when it ends, and wishing for more.
Adventurous and delightful novels for children/teen and up! I quite enjoyed these intriguing tales set in the tumultuous times leading up to the American Revolutionary War.
The first of the two novels, Regina Silsby’s Secret War encompasses passions to save family, friends, and the country. Full of intrigue, mystery, unsolved puzzles, and battles both internal and external. Wonderful story and recommended to all.
A highly enjoyable, and at times humorous, read. Look forward to reading the second book.
My 14-year-old daughter read it in one day and loved it! Storyline held from cover to cover. I’m glad to find something on the lighter-level for her that’s more wholesome than a lot of the stupid stuff out there for teens.
