The author chose a very unique time period in America as the tapestry with which to weave her story and the perfect location as well.
The book takes place during what I describe as a time of limbo between the immediate end of the American Revolutionary War and the signing of The Treaty of Paris in 1783. This is during the subsequent birthing pains before the negotiated formality & reality of peace between Great Britain and the United States with historic Charles Town as the setting.
This timing permits for a varied amalgamation of characters. Picture, if you will, not only the backdrop of a location in turmoil and transition but of the mix of humanity present as well. Soldier's from both sides, civilian loyalist's and patriot's, deserter's, the sudden flux of freemen and slave's, the dismantling of war camps with the women and children accompanying them converging there and flooding so many cities and townships along the Eastern Seaboard.
So, to the town itself, Betty Bolté boldly adds her woman of diversity and strong character. Some among them have become frontiers women, healer's and midwives, storytellers, newswomen and suffragists. Sister's of both kinship and friendship who bravely deal with topics, situations and ideas we may mistakenly consider exclusively contemporary.
There are matters of spousal abuse, alcoholism, legends, superstitions and subterfuge which serve as some of the circumstances to showcase convoluted & complicated romantic relationships.
With all these supurb elements I read and enjoyed "Amy's Choice" in one sitting.
Note: I received this book free from eBook Discovery. I voluntarily post this review. This IS my honest review!
This book covers a sad period in the history between the "Colonies" and Britain, bringing out all the deprivation and dangers facing the populace, as well as the risks taken to ensure that the lines of supply were kept open. Nevertheless, as a romance it was sad book to read as a certain amount of bitterness had settled on Amy, making it difficult for her to accept Ben's attentions. On the other hand Ben had a few lessons to learn, and it was well that he was faced with circumstances that made him rethink his position. I received this book for free from eBook Discovery. I voluntarily post this review. This is my honest review.
Ben left town to serve in the military, young and confused and with impending war, couldn't find the words to tell Amy how he felt. Now he's back and more mature, intends to resume the courtship; still not able to say the right words!
A Revolutionary tale, domestic abuse when women were thought of more like possesions rather than people, a tale full of intrigue and mystery will keep you glued to this historical romance.
