    One thought on “The Patriots”

    1. This is one of those books that seems to haunt you while you are reading it or trying to not read it, I should say. And when you are finally finished, feel accomplished and yet sad that you no longer get to peer in on the lives of the characters anymore. This book paints a wonderful picture of life of twins that choose different sides of America's fight for freedom. I loved the story and enough though the turn of events left me rather sad, I will still read it again.

    2. You know, I considered rating this book 4.5 stars on my third re-read, but I do adore the characters and the story, even though I skimmed several chunks this time (I know the book quite well, and all the historical stuff and even a lot of character stuff was skimmable this time). Jack Cavanaugh is still one of the best.

    3. Ok, this is another one of those books that I think is the BEST IN THE WORLD!!!!! And actually, it's the best book that I have ever read--along with "Yankee Doodle Boy". The book is long and THRILLING, every one of the 530 pages will hold you breathless! It was so good I never wanted it to end, and the author did the most perfect job on portraying all the people, battles, events and, of course, the ghastly betrayal of Benedict Arnold. You will come to consider Jacob and Esau as your own family o [...]

    4. Great book to read, another great story in this series. This one was a little tougher for me to get through because of the incredible historical detail of the war and troop movements, clandestine meetings, politics, and the description of different attacks. It was sometimes a bit hard to follow, too, because the main characters are twins and they are each on a different side of the war and then each become spies on the other side. But this didn't detract much from the entertainment.

    5. This book not only enables the reader to experience what it might have been like to live during the birth of our nation and its independence, there is also a beautiful, unexpected picture of self-sacrifice and forgiveness. Some parts were a little bit more detailed militarily than I enjoy, but it is definitely worth reading.

    6. Once again, I enjoyed the facts interspersed with the fiction. He did a great job making the history of the time period come alive. I appreciated his characters struggles with the conflict at that time. Each came from a different point of view. It also encompassed family conflicts and how they can either destroy or bring together a family.

    7. Historical fiction at its best. Love this series. Mr Cavanaugh goes into such detail. You feel like you are re-living history. The war scenes are incredible. The use of twins is visionary especially with the missions they take on in war. Great read.

    8. I absolutely loved this book. I could hardly put it down, it was accurate to true events and it was looking at the revolutionary war through the eyes of both the English and the Americans. Very enlightening, I want to read it again!

    9. Yet another amazing addition to the series! This one flowed much better than the second book of the series and brought you back to the captivation of the first! WOW!!! As I included in the previous two reviews - I read the "Victor editions" of the series.

    10. Loved this! Solid historical fiction with a Christian world view. It follows the path of America transforming from a Christian nation to a deist nation. Looking forward to The next book in the series.

    11. I am really enjoying this series. My sister sent all nine books home with me to read and its been fun! I love historical fiction! Thanks Susan!
