    1. Since I'm a fan of the American Revolutionary War, Daughter of Liberty by J.M. Hochstetler was an enjoyable read! It did get a little slow at times - the historical detail of that day was pretty extensive - but I don't believe I ever found myself bored of this story. It had excitement, what with spy missions and battles and mystery. And a rather complex romance. (The romance did lean more toward the cliches of Christian Historical Romance, especially older novels, but it wasn't too bad.) And the [...]


    2. Excellent. Melds history, romance and personal growth into a single story. Heavy on you-are-there details for life in colonial Boston as well as the opening shots of the American Revolution. Unfortunately history and Hochstetler's plot carries away several characters who would make fine allies and enemies in the sequels. Style is just a bit pedantic. Written for all ages, appropriate for young adult readers.Several main characters suffer through thoroughly believable, if modern crises of faith i [...]


    3. Mrs. Hochstetler has an amazing grasp of Revolutionary War history. She creates characters who have stayed with me and beckon me back in to the next book in the series. She weaves conflict and intrigue throughout the book, and I found myself riveted and surprised at every turn. I learned so much, but in a very enjoyable and effortless way.

Hochstetler*****American Colonist Oriole, wanted for crimes against the King, barely escapes after a harrowing race through the night fleeing British officers who are determined to catch him-this time. Hiding behind shrubs he waits till they give up once again before he rides to his fellow loyalists meeting place and turns over the documents he is carrying. Oriole is part of the sons of liberty who have banded together to get out from [...]


    5. I am a 65 year old grandmother returning to this book after about two years. I have never forgotten the story that I was unable to finish. I began my quest to recall the title or author's name. Impossible! After a search of multiple possible titles with the words "liberty" or "revolutionary" or "freedom" included, I finally stumbled upon the correct one. My search was not in vain.I was introduced to this author and her series by my daughter who read the books to her sons. They enjoyed the books [...]




    6. Clean historical Christian novelI enjoyed this historical detailed novel about our early history of the colonists. It was easy to connect with the characters and the interlaced biblical directions and honoring the Lord. I recommend this book


    7. This is a new author for me. I loved following the activities of the Patriots and the Loyalists around Boston before the battle of Bunker Hill. Every page drips with spying and questionable loyalties.


    8. Title: Daughter of Liberty (The American Patriot Series #1)Author: J. M. HochstetlerPages: 432Year: 2012Publisher: Sheaf HouseMy rating is 5 stars.I found this series quite by accident when searching for books of interest on . Now I am so glad to have read book one as there are five others in the series published thus far, though is out of stock on some of the books. I think these wonderful faith-filled historical stories have caught the attention of readers as they so richly deserve to be noti [...]


    9. As a lover of historical inspirational romance, "Daughter of Liberty" held me captive with its charming characters and daring adventures. And as a lover of the history of the American Revolution, this same book thoroughly swept me away. The author, Joan Hochstetler, is an expert in every detail of the era. She describes in depth the events leading up to the start of the Revolution and she well portrayed the pain of families and friends divided in their loyalties between following the laws of the [...]


    10. Powerful and heart pounding!This book is well-written and the characters feel so real! This story in Boston at the beginning of the American Revolution. You will read the story from both sides of the war: Patriot and Loyalist. Daughter of Liberty has a lot of action, spies, intense emotions, and romance. I found the story fast-paced and thrilling! A delight for any history buff and reader!This quote by Elizabeth struck a chord with me:“We have to find the strength to go on and to win—for the [...]


    11. The writer creates a brilliant scene & describes things well.but knowing who Oriole is from the book jacket, i couldnt get into the book because of the behavior she shows. Its written in the 1770s yet her uncle & cousins let her ride all over the countryside as a boy, get shot at & spy just because her Aunt said she'd be good at it? The spying i could by but not her family treating her like a woman would be treated now, theyre only concern for her heart when they hear an intelligent [...]


    12. Our heroine disguises herself as a boy to spy for the American cause. She also falls in love with a British officer but things are not as they seem. While she resolves to refuse to love him he has secrets of his own.The suspense in this book is almost unbearable. This suspense in this book is almost unbearable and I liked it very much. what I didn't like was that once again Paul Revere is portrayed as a hearing man.Paul Revere was deaf. I wish historical fiction writers would get their facts rig [...]


    13. Excellent descriptions of the British attack on Concord, Lexington and Boston, and the efforts of the colonials to fight back. The author knows Boston in intimate detail, you'll feel yourself there with the heroine Elizabeth in the late eighteenth century. Characterizations are very good. The overly religious parts were awkward for me and took away from the tension of the story. Otherwise, a great read.


    14. This is the newly revised and updated Heritage Edition of book 1 of my American Patriot Series, which releases in April 2012. The covers of the Heritage Edition feature paintings by renowned historical artist Don Troiani.


    15. Daughter of Liberty (American Patriot Series #1) is an awesome read! If you are a history nut like me, then this is the book for you. I don't keep many books after I have read them, but this one is a keeper. Looking forward to more of the series.



    16. Fabulous historical fiction set in Boston during the Revolutionary War. Spies, love of God and country, battles, family, and clean romance are the hallmark of this excellent book.


    17. excellentHistorical events accurate and details made the reader feel present at the events. Strong, compelling characters set the stage for future developments.
