Review for the Spirit of the Revolution

Debbie Peterson has a gift for telling a tale of impossible romance. Part of the delight in her books is sharing the journey and wondering how she's going to bring about an ending that leaves the reader with a contented sigh. If you've read her previous book, SPIRIT OF THE REBELLION, you know she enjoys pairing a hero from the past with a heroine in the present.

In the case of SPIRIT OF THE REVOLUTION, we get Mathias McGregor, leader of a band of Pennsylvania Rangers/spies who support the Patriot cause and are called upon to deliver intelligence to George Washington. Unfortunately, before they can fulfill their assignment, they meet an untimely end at the hands of the Redcoats. Fast forward to the twenty-first century where Jolena Michaelsson, a renowned violinist, has bought the house where Mathias and his rangers linger in ghostly form.

It isn't' long before Mathias and `the boys' introduce themselves. What follows is a mix of romance, mystery, genealogy, history and adventure.

Like Jolena, I fell in love with the boys immediately, especially Mathias and his closest friend, Sam. There's a particular scene near the end that had me reaching for Kleenex and pleading right along with Jolena. It was late, but I couldn't put the book down until I finished it and reached that impossible how-did-she-pull-it-off satisfying ending.

I highly recommend SPIRIT OF THE REVOLUTION for anyone who enjoys an engaging read offering a unique blend of romance and history with characters who will steal your heart!

Luckily, Debbie Peterson pulls this off really well, and I was definitely satisfied with the HEA...

Debbie Peterson has written an extremely heart-wrenching story featuring men from Revolutionary times who are killed while conducting a mysterious mission. It's a mission that's still important today and must be solved for them to find peace. This story combines not only a sweetly satisfying romance but a bit of mystery amongst this life and death theme...
