My Review
4.5 STARS!!!

Woodhouse brings a touching story in The Patriot Bride. I was completely enamored from the beginning. There are so many great elements in this story and Woodhouse’s incorporation of two of our country’s greatest founders is brilliant. Just imagining George Washington and Benjamin Franklin in this setting, hearing their thoughts and feelings added an incredible depth to the story for me. I adored Washington’s relationship with Faith, especially the prologue that had me chuckling and then tearing up. And Franklin’s friendship with Matthew was such a delight.

The author excels at putting readers smack dab in the middle of the fray. Every moment Faith and Matthew had to meet in secret was thrilling and dangerous. And the villain…Woodhouse wrote a certified crackpot!  There is plenty of intrigue and danger, with the right amount of romance woven among this moving historical to make it a must-read. If you’re a fan of history, I think you’ll enjoy this book. And I even read the author notes in the back and learned a thing or two.
I was provided a print copy from the publisher. No review was required. No compensation has been received. 


  1. This is one series that I really want to read. This book really sounds good. So may books in my TBR pile and so little time! LOL

    1. Joy, I know how you feel! Summer played havoc on my reading schedule and I am way behind.

  2. I'm not much for Historical Fiction. I prefer modern day stories but I must say you made the book sound interesting and it's always fun to find a good read.

    1. Ida, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I've enjoyed this series. They are all stand-alone titles but I am glad I've been reading them in order. I hope you enjoy the book if you decide to read it. Sorry it took me so long to respond. Somehow I missed both yours and Joy's comment.


I am so delighted that you've taken time to come by and comment. Blessings for a joy-filled day!
