Long cold winter nights need a book. This is it!

It's cold outside, snow is falling. You sit in front of the fireplace, sipping hot chocolate. You read this book. Great adventure, strong storyline, fine characters. Sure, it's a novel but so visual that it is as if you're watching the movie. It's the best of both worlds: good writing and a great director! You'll be pulled through the pages. Nothing can nor will stop you.

BUY THIS BOOK!

I love this book! It will put you THERE and you will not want to leave until it's over. Very well-written--unforgettable characters--it's scary, funny, intriguing--you name it, it's in here. Just a flat-out great read.

Love and Honor - Appropriate Title for an Outstanding Novel

I highly recommend this book I really looked forward to getting my copy of this book. I enjoy an author who believes in heroes and heroines. The story is enjoyable and conveys the sense of history and beliefs are country was founded on. The protagonist, Kieran is the kind of man of honor and integrity all men hope to be. The pitfalls, temptations, and struggles he goes through to accomplish his mission are outstanding. His belief in freedom overcomes tyranny and intrigue. His ideals help him to overcome adversity and achieve love and honor. The plot is thick with action, romance, and conspiracies. The description of Catherine the Greats' Russia, during the late 1700's, is breathtaking and well researched. I felt as if I was in a horse drawn sleigh in the dead of winter around St Petersburg. The fight with wolves, Cossacks, and enemies of American independence are excellent. One of my favorite scenes is with the bagpipes - I will not give away any detail. I like how a man can achieve love and still keep his honor even when there is great opportunity to take short cuts to achieve his goals. I like how women can keep their dignity even when confronted with prejudice and hardship. This is an outstanding book about love and honor and the beginning attitude of our nation.

"Love and Honor" is like "Braveheart".... Awesome!

I just finished reading "Love and Honor" and I liked it better than any of Randall Wallace's other stories. I really hope it gets turned into a film, like "Braveheart" and "Pearl Harbor", because it will be awesome! I read on a website that Angelina Jolie might play Catherine the Great in the film version. She would be great. "Love and Honor" has many similarities to "Braveheart". Like "Braveheart", the story deals with one man's mission to save a country. In "Love and Honor" that man is a Virginia colonist named Kieran Selkirk. He's handpicked by Ben Franklin to go to Russia on a secret mission to help save the American Revolution. Russia though, is much tougher than he thought... and every bit of him is tested along the way. Wallace makes Russia seem magical. I wanted to hop on a plane and visit St. Peterburg the minute I finished reading the book. The writing reminded me a lot of classic Russian books like "Dr. Zhivago" and "Anna Karenina". The intrigue and historical aspects of the plot were the best I've read since "The DaVinci Code". The characters were very rich, especially a Russian mercenary named Gorlov. The only part of the story I didn't like was that it ended without total resolution... but I guess that's so they can have a sequel.

One word for this book...

Awesome! I've been waiting for something like this from Randall Wallace since I first saw "Braveheart". This story will not disappoint! It has everything you look for in a great epic: love; guts; glory; gore; battle; intrigue; disception; humor; pain; heartache; honor; courage; valor... If you liked "Braveheart"... You'll love this story. It pulls the same emotional strings and has the same heart. It will remind you what it really is to be an American. Make this into a movie! NOW!! (Personal Note-- The character of Gorlov kicks ass!!!!!)
