Siri Mitchell – The Messenger

From the Back Cover:

A Riveting Tale of Faith and Romance by an Acclaimed Novelist.

Hannah Sunderland felt content in her embrace of the Quaker faith

…until her twin brother ran off and joined the army and ended up captured and in jail. Suddenly Hannah’s world turns on end. She longs to bring her brother some measure of comfort in the squalid, frigid prison where he remains. But the Quakers believe they are not to take sides, not to take up arms. Can she sit by and do nothing while he suffers?

Jeremiah Jones has an enormous task before him. Responsibility for a spy ring is now his, and he desperately needs access to the men in prison, whom they are seeking to free. A possible solution is to garner a pass for Hannah. But while she is fine to the eye, she holds only disdain for him–and agreeing would mean disobeying those she loves and abandoning a bedrock of her faith.

With skill and sensitivity, Mitchell tells a story of two unlikely heroes seeking God’s voice, finding the courage to act, and discovering the powerful embrace of love.

Amanda’s Review:

One thing I love about reading historicals is the inside view you get of what it might have been like at certain times and/or events in history. The Messenger was great in that respect. Set during America’s Revolutionary War, with a Quaker for a heroine and an embittered and damaged, ex-soldier for a hero, I was intrigued from the start. How would Siri Mitchell bring two characters, who were poles apart in beliefs and nature, together by the end? How do you get a Quaker to not only become involved in the war goings-on, but act as a spy as well?

For the answers to these questions, you will have to read The Messenger yourself. What seems impossible, slowly becomes possible as the story progresses, written with a deft hand. It will suffice to say that I loved every minute of this book and found it hard to put down. If you love historical romance, you will love it too.
