Unabridged Chick recently read and reviewed The Loyalist’s Wife by Elaine Cougler for the American Revolution Reading Challenge 2013. Here’s an excerpt:
The writing style is straightforward, although occasionally too simplistic for my tastes (I sometimes felt as if rather intense moments were breezed over now and then, to my disappointment; I would have loved to dig in and really sit with some of these deeply distressing times!). The point-of-view switches every few chapters from Lucy to John, which I found a little maddening; while I appreciate what it does to build tension, it made me want to scream when the switch happened at a particularly tense moment or when I was really ‘in’ one particular character’s psyche.
