Patriots Redcoats & Spies, a review
I love to read about the time period of the American Revolution. This story by a father and son team, Robert J. Skead and Robert A. Skead, did not let me down at all.
It is one of those YA books in which adults will find a good read on a rainy (or snowy) afternoon. It is good when authors write in such a way that they are not "writing down" to kids an adolescents.
In this book, the twin sons of Patriot Lamberton Clark must carry an important document to General George Washington when their father is shot and unable to make the dangerous journey himself. Until this time, they had no idea their father was a member of the famous Culper Spy Ring.
The book is about their adventures and obstacles along the way. It offers not only a good story but a glimpse into what life was like for the people who were living in the midst of a Revolution.
While boys, girls, parents, and grandparents will enjoy this book... it is especially good for young boys! I always love to find stories of valor and bravery for boys to read. Especially if they are believable.
This is a sturdy hardback book, the first in what appears to be a new series. A very enjoyable story!
