This is a story which weaves authentic history with romance. I was so intrigued by the plot centred around the Boston Revolution and the role African Americans played in it.
I love reading about brave characters who face adversities and challenge the norm. Faith is the daughter of a loyalist who spies for the rebels as Lady Midnight and Nicholas is a rich adventurer who is also a rebel living in a largely loyalist environment.
All in all, an enjoyable historical romance. I look forward to more from this author.

The novel by Beverly Jenkins is full of American History. However, like any other history people are living their daily lives or doing something extraordinary. They continue to fall in love and out of love. They also continue to have babies. They continue to grow old and die natural deaths while soldiers are all around them planning ways to pursue what they would call freedom. With all of their talks about freedom the soon to be known as Americans did not see the Black man as equeal.
Faith is a lady who does the extraordinary in dangerous ways. She is a Tory by birth because her father is a Tory. However, she becomes a Patriot in her thought processes. She becomes a spy. She takes messages back and forth to the Patriots about the movements of the British. Her life is always in danger. I liked her because the courage she displayed in order to save the lives of the Sons of Liberty and other men in the war is fascinating. Her undercover name is Midnight. As I read, I was reminded that to stand up for what is right always takes a brave heart and a person willing to risk their lives for another person's safety.
Throughout the story I saw her father turn from bad to worse. Finally, I think he had completely lost his senses. It struck me that for personal love interest or love of country, there must, at times, come a parting of ways between those whom we are related to by blood. This happened in Faith's life.
It is horribly sad to read about the relationship with her father. To think a parent would just use a child for their lifestyle and desires is beyond despicable. When he throws her out on the streets leaving her to die, I wanted to cry. However, I am aware some children, in our day and time, are not in their homes because of relationship problems with their parents.
So even though the novel takes place Pre Revolutionary war human nature doesn't change much. People are people. We love and hate in the same way without fully learning lessons from the past.bing.com/images/search?q=black+men+in+the+revolutionary
