Jules’ Book Reviews recently read and reviewed The Turncoat: Renegades of the Revolution by Donna Thorland for the American Revolution Reading Challenge 2013.  Here’s a sample:

There wasn’t a lot about the book that I enjoyed. While the actual historical fiction aspect throughout the book were well done and interesting enough, I found that even those were lost in the “romance” of the book. The book was suppose to be a historical fiction, but what I got was poorly executed “romance” between the characters. The romance wasn’t believable and I found it to be forced, it took over the entire story, rather than compliment it.

Read the full review.

Books and Movies also read and reviewed this book for the challenge; here’s a sample:

I loved the historical aspects of this book, but I wasn’t crazy about the characters and the romance. The sex was a bit graphic for my tastes, and I found it hard to believe that a young Quaker woman would so easily surrender to physical passion.
