I'm giving away a copy of Sons of Glory by Craig and Janet Parshall



From the publisher:

Boston, Massachusetts—1770.Having left Scotland, the Mackenzie family now lives on in three brothers—Nathan, Edward, and Robby—as the turbulent story begun in Crown of Fire and Captives and Kings concludes.

When Nathan, a young lawyer, witnesses the Boston Massacre, he and his mentor John Adams—though both pro–independence—are pulled into defending British soldiers.

During the following conflict with his fellow patriots, Nathan also struggles with his minister brother, Edward, who remains firmly loyal to what he considers the God–ordained British government.

When youngest brother Robby, a radical patriot, is arrested and hanged, Edward and Nathan must each search heart and soul. In the end, they and their families pledge themselves to the colonial cause. To them, however, ultimate glory does not rest with a new nation and new political system. Rather, true glory resides in doing God’s will in the midst of dangerous and uncertain times.


My thoughts:

This book is good. I'm about halfway through it. I'm enjoying the storyline and love the duplicity demonstrated by so many different points of view at that time. It's very historically engaging as well. The authors use intelligent speeches between characters to make you think about what is more important in life...living in safety and comfort, or pursuing justice even if it means others will hate you for it. Very thought provoking stuff here.
