Review: Freedom’s Light by Colleen Coble

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

History came alive for me in this story!

There was so much about the Revolutionary War I really didn’t realize. I knew the basics but I never realized that there were those who lived in America that believed we should continue being loyal to England.

This story captivated me from the beginning. Hannah has so much spunk and passion for her God and her family. She was a strong woman that was easy to admire. The author did a great job making Birch a character to love as well. He had baggage that he had carried too long and I loved how justice played out in this story. Lydia broke my heart as much as she broke Hannah’s. And I didn’t expect the resolution of her story to go the direction it did.

The thing that really hit me hard with this story was the treatment of Hannah and Lydia by the town’s “religious” leaders, the Puritans. Not to give too much away, but it was truly a sad time in our Christian heritage.

If you enjoy historical fiction or Colleen Coble as an author you’re going to enjoy this story. If you enjoy historical fiction AND Colleen Coble as an author you’re going to LOVE this story.

Once again Grabby Rocks

Gabby is still my all time favorite character by Christy Barritt!

And once again Barritt gives readers a strong characters with an interesting story. Through most of the story I was trying to figure out the good guys from the bad guys. I think Barritt has a fun and exciting twist coming in the next (and sadly final) story.

One of the things I have enjoyed about this series is watching Gabby “growing up.” From the skeptical, searching crime scene cleaner to respected private investigator that turns to God in prayer. Barritt does a great job of displaying Gabby like many of us, struggling and always learning.

If you’ve read any of the books in the series you’ll enjoy this one. If you are new to the series, I do recommend reading at least the first couple to understand where Gabby comes from, but you’d really enjoy the entire series!
