The Courier Of Caswell Hall – Book Review
Imagine you are the daughter of a wealthy plantation owner, a British loyalist, during the Revolutionary War.
One night during your evening walk by the river, while dreaming about a return to simpler times, to days of peace, you hear a groan.
At first you think your mind is playing tricks on you in the darkness. Surely the sound you hear must be the wind, or an animal trapped in the branches, or even water driving a log through the leaves.
You turn to walk away, but then you hear it – the unmistakable sound of a man’s voice – then silence. Your heart stops – you want to flee – but you cannot turn away. You look up and then, you see them:
British ships sailing down the river, and a wounded man in the water.
Who is this man? Where do his loyalties lie?
You have no way of knowing or finding out. All you know is that if you leave him in the frigid water, he will be dead by morning.
What do you do? And down what path will the choice you make in the next few moments lead?
This is the situation that Lydia Caswell finds herself in at the beginning of The Courier Of Caswell Hall – a gripping story that brings the American Revolutionary War out of the pages of dusty history books and into real life.
The Courier Of Caswell Hall by Melanie Dobson is the fifth release in The American Tapestries Series – a group of standalone novels that set heart-stirring love stories against the backdrop of epic moments in American history. The series is publishes by Summerside Press – an imprint of Guideposts.
The Courier Of Casswell Hall is a wonderful story that draws you in from the start with its richly developed characters, its well-researched storyline, and the thread of faith that runs throughout.
If you love good historical fiction tinged with sweet romance, you will appreciate Melanie’s storytelling style!
The Courier Of Casswell Hall serves as my introduction to both Melanie Dobson and The American Tapestries Series and based on my reading, I look forward to reading more of both in the future!
