Paper Woman by Suzanne Adair isn't your average, every day novel about the Revolutionary War. Instead, Ms. Adair has created a captivating world and characters that readers can easily visualize and relate too. The novel's title is derived from the heroine in the story, Sophie Barton, whose nickname is Paper Woman. She has gained this title after helping her father run his printing press. To make matters more intriguing, Sophie is being courted by a British Major who offers her the chance to leave the little town of Alton and live in luxury as his mistress. Although financial security is an amazing offer for women in 1780, Sophie is torn between what she wants and the duty she feels towards her family.

When Sophie is called upon to identify her father's corpse, she makes the decision to leave Alton and try to solve her father's murder. Since traveling is dangerous for women of that time, she enlists the help of her brother David, an ex-lover Mathias, and Mathias's Uncle and Creek cousins.

There is adventure and action around every corner with the British, southern Rebels, Spanish assassins and Creek people thrown into the mix. Ms. Adair does a wonderful job of giving straight facts as to the conditions of that time instead of glamorizing it for readers. I would highly recommend Paper Woman to anyone who loves historical fiction with romance, mystery, suspense and action all wrapped into one.
