That moment when you’ve finished a wonderful book and you don’t want to let it go … so you read the author’s notes … and you find YOUR NAME in them. What!? Wow. I’d forgotten that Jocelyn Green had asked a horse question on Facebook probably a year ago. She was looking for a good breed of horse to use in a Colonial-era story. I suggested the Narragansett Pacer, and sure enough, she used it. She even remembered me. How sweet is that?!
It’s no secret that I’m a huge Jocelyn Green fan, so you won’t think it odd that I gave this book five stars, but honestly, it’s that good. Well-researched, engaging characters, unique setting, and all wrapped around a very interesting period in history, when the French were fighting for their freedom and the U.S. was struggling to hold on to theirs. Beautiful story. Read it. Soak it up.
