“Freedom’s LIght” by Colleen Coble, book review
Hannah Thomas is now the keeper of the lighthouse. Her husband, John, previously did the very time consuming job of keeping the lights burning, until he answered the call for volunteers to join Washington’s army. Now it is Hannah’s job.
Birch is fighting for the side he believes is in the right, and as a sea captain, has a unique position to be of aid. When his ship is torn apart on the rocks, he is rescued by Hannah and spends days recuperating in the light house. He sees how hard she works and what she endures at the hands of her in-laws and the strict religious community. He enjoys their verbal spats as they debate the merits of the war.
This is an interesting book and will be especially of interest to history buffs. The Revolutionary War was a difficult time for our country and the families who were involved. The lines were not always clear, and families were often torn apart.
I enjoyed the story, felt the plot was believable and the characters likable. I will look forward to reading the next book, hopefully, in the series.
