Review: Freedom's Light by Collen Coble


Book Description

"USA TODAY bestselling author Colleen Coble explores the mystery and the romance of the Revolutionary War.
A young lighthouse keeper must navigate the dangerous waters of revolution and one man’s obsession with her to find safe harbor with the sea captain she loves.
Hannah Thomas believes she’s escaped Galen Wright’s evil intentions by marrying an older lighthouse keeper. Seemingly safe in faraway Massachusetts, her world is upended when John is killed in one of the first battles of the Revolutionary War. Hannah is allowed to continue the difficult task of tending the twin lighthouses in John’s place, though she faces daily disapproval from John’s family. She thinks her loneliness will subside when her younger sister arrives, but she finds Lydia’s obsession with Galen only escalates the dangerous tides swirling around her.
A stormy night brings a shipwrecked sea captain to Hannah’s door, and though he is a Tory, her heart is as traitorous as the dark-eyed captain. Even though she discovers Birch Meredith isn’t the enemy he seemed at first, Hannah isn’t sure their love will ever see the light of freedom."

In Freedom's Light by Colleen Coble is a historical fiction set during the Revolutionary War.  In this book, Ms. Coble shows some of the difficulties facing the people living in this time period standing on different sides of the war.  The book is a romance novel and also very suspenseful.  Due to some of the difficult topics covered in the book I would not recommend for younger teens.  Historical Fiction is my favorite type of book to read and I did enjoy In Freedom's Light.  It definitely kept me in suspense and reading all the way to the end to see how it all would turn out.  Hannah hold on to her faith in God no matter what difficulties and heartbreaks she faces in her life.  One of my favorite parts of the book was the relationship that evolved between Hannah and her former sister-in-law.
