Susanna Smith, daughter of a minister, and endowed with a quick mind and sharper wit, faces a challenge to everything she's ever known. Will she choose the safe path or stand up for those less fortunate.
Ben Ross is a firebrand lawyer. His passion for justice and his attraction to the beautiful Susanna send him into serious turmoil. Her traditional views and loyalties endanger his cause, but he notices something special about her: she's not afraid to speak her mind or consider the facts.
Jody Hedlund once again gives us a wonderful tale of romance, danger, and suspense. I loved the timeframe of the pre-Revolutionary War period and the birth pangs of a new nation. At the end of the book, she noted this story was loosely based on letters between Abigail and John Adams.
Five stars for this one!
