Book Review: Desperate Hope by Susan Leigh Furlong



Revolutionary War soldier, Gavin Cullane, has desperate choices to make. He vows never to give up the fight for American freedom, but his role as colonial liaison between the Americans and the British brands him a seeming traitor to his own country. When he discovers the woman he loves is part of George Washington’s secret spy chain, his only choice is to expose his own lies so she can escape.

Tansy Carter risks her life to send messages to George Washington from the captured city of New York. When she is discovered, she must flee the city, and trusting her life to the traitor, Cullane, is the desperate chance she must take.

Will their freedom come at the cost of their love?

My Review - 4 1/2 of 5 stars - 

4 1/2 stars. A story that incorporated real history and a cast of caring characters. There were moments of gritty detail throughout, as the Revolutionary War was not a pretty affair. Yet, there were moments where I smiled and even cried. Gavin had a good heart, was a loyal friend, but made a series of mistakes. I loved his tenacity, his human side, and his need to be his own man. Tamsin was a strong woman, caring, and determined. They made a good couple through all the danger, death, and trying times.

I received a copy of this story through Goddess Fish Promotions, and this is my unsolicited review.
