Another pleaser for Hodge fans

In this book, we again meet Hart and Mercy Purchis, who are seperated by the circumstances of the Revolution in America. Jane Aiken Hodge is a wonderful story teller, and weaves her fictional characters around real people and events in history. She is able to provide a glimpse of what society was like in the time and place where she sets her story, without getting bogged down in overdetailed descriptions of fashions or buildings. Fans of historical novels will find this a thoroughly satisfying read.

In this story, we again meet Hart and Mercy Purchis, who are seperated by the Revolution in America. Jane Aiken Hodge is a wonderful storyteller, who weaves her fictional characters around real people and events in history. She is able to give us a glimpse of life during the time of her stories, without getting bogged down in overdetailed descriptions of fashions or buildings. In this story, we are treated to sightings of political figures in America and England, as Mercy travels to Philidelphia, and Hart to London. Her characters are strong, and the women are not helpless little creatures. Fans of historical novels will find this a thoroughly satisfying read.
