This book caught my attention immediately because I am a huge fan of stories set during the American Revolution, which are hard to come by. I’m so glad I picked it up because The Turncoat proved to be a thrilling read, both incredibly romantic and edge-of-your-seat suspenseful. Be warned: it will keep you up to the wee hours to finish.
Far from being a wallpaper historical with the American Revolution serving simply as an excuse for men in dashing uniforms and women with powdered hair, the plot of the entire story is completely driven by Kate and Peter’s involvement in the war and how their feelings for the other affect their actions. Real life figures play prominently in the story, and it is very clear that Thorland did extensive research not only on the lifestyle and social norms of the period but on the military and political machinations at work. In addition, the true horrors of war are not glossed over, the threats to the characters real and deadly.
The Turncoat offers a fantastic change from standard Regency fare. This is the first in a new series. I’ll be snatching up the next installment the minute it hits bookshelves, happy to return to this exciting period in America’s history.
