Description

Spoiler Alert! (highlight to read)
In August 1776, the War for Independence has begun, pitting neighbor against neighbor. Samuel Beckett must take his stand with one side or the other. But Samuel Beckett--the real Samuel Beckett--is now over 200 years in the future, and his several-times-great-grandson has taken his place. Is Samuel Beckett a patriot or a Tory? Twentieth century Sam is on his own to discover the dangerous truth

I just started this one and am liking it a lot so far...At this point mostly for the historical setting. I love history and I'm always interested in stories set during the Revolutionary War. I'll update later.

I'm finished with this one, I liked it a lot. The author has a good understanding of the characters and the historical setting was interesting. Al was his usual lecherous self and Sam was his usual straight-laced self. LOL.

If you liked this novel, I suggest you listen to my interview with the author John Peel
