Cleanliness (See “About” for scale): Yuck (Topics to consider: war, murder, religion, kissing, mention of abuse, drinking, multiple scenes of implied sex, and death.)
This story will totally suck you in. The Revolutionary War setting makes this book so much more than just a romance. It has mystery, historical facts, multiple romances, betrayal, religion, and a lot of love. Freedom’s Light is a very unique book that will keep you engrossed almost every moment.
I’m a huge fan of Colleen Coble’s writing, and even though I loved this book, I didn’t love the sexual nature of it. I haven’t felt that way about any of her other works, so it was a little surprising. None of it in this book was detailed, but there was constant talk of one of the main character’s relationship before marriage (and the child that resulted from it). I think the topics were well dealt with, but possibly a little unnecessary in the first place.
I was amazed at how well this book incorporated religion without making it overbearing. Coble pointedly showed the difference between religious fanatics and the people who truly love the Lord.
Secrets, delusions, fake love, true love, forgiveness. Freedom’s Light is a powerful story that shows how love can blind you, and forgiveness can set you free. I totally recommend it to all who love romance, adventure, or the Revolutionary War time period.
It only takes one light to save a sea full of people.
