The Courier of Caswell Hall

An unlikely spy discovers freedom and love in the midst of the American Revolution.

As the British and Continental armies wage war in 1781, the daughter of a wealthy Virginia plantation owner feels conflict raging in her own heart. Lydia Caswell comes from a family of staunch Loyalists, but she cares only about peace. Her friend Sarah Hammond, however, longs to join the fight. Both women’s families have already been divided by a costly war that sets father against son and neighbor against neighbor; a war that makes it impossible to guess who can be trusted.

One snowy night Lydia discovers a wounded man on the riverbank near Caswell Hall, and her decision to save him will change her life. Nathan introduces her to a secret network of spies, couriers, disguises, and coded messages—a network that may be the Patriots’ only hope for winning the war. When British officers take over Caswell Hall and wreak havoc on neighboring plantations, Lydia will have to choose between loyalty and freedom; between her family’s protection and her own heart’s desires.

As both armies gather near Williamsburg for a pivotal battle, both Lydia and Sarah must decide how high a price they are willing to pay to help the men they love.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

The Courier of Caswell Hall is a very good historical fiction read that I thoroughly enjoyed.  It was fun taking a trip to learn about the  British colonists during the American Revolution. The historical facts from this era were amazing. Lydia was a neat and interesting character and she captured my heart early in the story. I had to keep reading to see what would happen with her! All of the characters are well thought out and developed so well throughout the story. I love the detail that Melanie Dobson includes in all of her books, just as she did in this one. I found myself so glue to the story I didn’t want to put it down because it was so very interesting! I really want to recommend this wonderful historical fiction to anyone who loves reading about historical times. You will not be disappointed in this one.

I received this book from Litfuse to read and review.  I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55.
