I have a tbr pile that I worry about First because if it falls over it will crush one of my dogs and second because I make so little progress There are novels I have been trying to read for months My lack of success has nothing to do with the novels themselves hiding in the stack may be the best novel I'll ever come across It's just life And I will not bore you with the details The way I came to read The Turncoat is it fell in my lap Somebody handed it to me and said read the first chapter And sat down to stare at me until I had done just that I think I am hesitant to pick up historical novels because I am usually disappointed I can be disappointed in a historical than in a contemporary because a historical novel makes bigger demands of the writer and many writers don't take that challenge seriously But Donna Thorland does Donna Thorland can write She can tell a story and she has mastered the art of establishing time and place without hitting the reader over the head with it So once I started I had to finish and not once along the way did I look at the time The biggest compliment I can pay a writer is to say that I forgot to read like a writer There was no room in my head for noticing plot structure because it was solid balanced and uick moving and the characters had all my attentionAnother unusual point about this novel is that Thorland doesn't pull punches Most novels about the Revolutionary War especially love stories are sanitized Violence toward women is generally not considered in any depth She doesn't do this she looks the facts straight in the face and so the reader must too There are some wonderful characters here I haven't read any other novels by Thorland yet but I'm hoping I'll run into some of them again Just a peek would do Thus five stars And I'm looking forward to novels in the series

They are lovers on opposite sides of a brutal war with everything at stake and no possibility of retreat They can trust no one especially not each other Major Lord Peter Tremayne is the last man rebel bluestocking Kate Grey should fall in love with but when the handsome British viscount commandeers her home Kate throws caution to the wind and responds to his seduction She is on the verge of surrender when a spy in her own household seize. I had high hopes for this novel I really enjoy historical fiction and the novel mentioned many historically accurate battles and figures but the author threw all this away by making the centered female character a hussy for a handsome british soldier and his eually attractive cousin slash half brother spoiler alert but not really because it's completely obvious from very early on but the author still tries to make it some jaw dropping revelation and it all ends up being super anti climactic and unnecessary because it does very little for the plot The author had this incredible way to show the American Revolution form a woman's perspective She had set up a great way to show it through a character that was linked with actual events and people but she justfor lack of a better phrasetook a dump on it all and demeaned this character and all that she did by making her just as sex starved as all the other woman in modern novels And this woman was a uaker and of course that doesn't bode well for the story because she needs to have sex with both the steamy british soldier and his abusive but also kind what half brother How demeaning Don't worry though because she is still conflicted when it comes to spying on the loyalists because of her uaker roots even though her father works for General Washington Because that just makes a whole lot of sense

The TurncoatH for his current assignment to capture the woman he believes betrayed him Nor does he relish the glittering entertainments being held for General Howe’s idle officers Worse the glamorous woman in the midst of this social whirl the fiancée of his own dissolute cousin is none other than Kate Grey herself And so begins their dangerous dance between passion and patriotism between certain death and the promise of a brave new future togethe. Having not read an American Revolution novel in awhile I picked this one up and was pleasantly surprised with how it kept my interest The book follows Kate Grey who was a uaker woman but would become a successful Rebel Spy Pinning herself among people on both sides of the war she finds herself caught in a dangerous web which included intrigue as well as romance While a spy she becomes attracted to Peter Tremayne a British officer and it's through their relationship that she fully begins to understand the dangers of warThis novel is fast paced and an easy read about the American Revolution For one it was nice to read a novel which didn't paint the British in such a horrible light but still managed to show the struggles felt on both sides However on the other side of the coin I felt that the book didn't bring anything that was shockingly good to the table It was a good read but nothing that made me stop and say wow I've never read something like this before Nevertheless if you're looking for a uick historical romance that can easily be read at the beach this would be a good choice
