Jennifer Lynn Cary5 Stars Out Of 5December 16, 2007Jennifer Lynn CaryHer most recent historical, A Shadow of Treason, is part of her Chronicles of the Spanish Civil War series. Tricia explains in the foreword that the Spanish Civil War was something she knew little about before doing her research for her WWII books. Like her, I find that time period to be fascinating.A Shadow of Treason finds Sophie Grace still in Guernica, Spain after General Franco, with the help of the Nazis, has bombed and burned the historic village. Having already lost Michael, the fianc left her safe home in Boston for, she finally has come to terms with her heartshe is in love with Philip Stanford, the American volunteer soldier in the Abraham Lincoln brigade whod rescued her in her escape from Madrid. Just when she is ready to look forward to a life with Philip, Walt Block, the shady newspaper reporter whod helped her get into Spain calls in a favor. A big favor. And he drops a bomb of his own on Sophies dreams, making her choose between Philip and helping to save the people of Spain who she has come to love. The twists and turns will keep you guessing. The intrigue will keep you reading. The beauty of Goyers prose will keep you thinking about this story long after you finish the last word. She has hit her stride when it comes to word craft with this bookI believe it is her best to date.As a stand-alone, however, I would not recommend A Shadow of Treason. You would lose too much of the depth and panorama of the story. By reading the trilogy in order, the story takes on a life of its own and you come to care deeply about the characters. If you have read A Valley of Betrayal, then grab A Shadow of Treason and inhale the senses-grabbing prose. If you have not read A Valley of Betrayal, why not? Get it now and travel along with unforgettable characters to a time that should not be forgotten. Then you will be ready for A Shadow of Treason.
Deborah5 Stars Out Of 5November 23, 2007DeborahOnce again I was transported back into history with another book by Tricia Goyer. I love the research that was done for this novel. It is obvious that the author actually went out and did her homework when writing this book. I hate historical fiction novels that just write about events that everyone knows about. Tricia Goyer's books, however, focus on historical events that the average person does not really know. For example, if you asked the average person about the Spanish Civil War, they would probably have no idea what you are talking about. By reading her books you actually learn while enjoying a great story. I wish her books could have part of my college curriculum because I've learned a lot from her writing for my own history classes. There's a lot that goes on in this book as several different characters are given time to tell their story. It's a little confusing at first in the beginning because I was trying to remember who everyone was. But once I got past that, I really liked how everyone's story all connected somehow. I really liked Sophie's story especially when she finds out the truth about what really happened with Michael and what she has to do after that. I especially love stories about characters having to play spies and double agents. Finishing this book was satisfying and I totally enjoyed it. I'm highly anticipating the third book in the series to find out what happens to everyone. If you love historical fiction, you NEED to get this book.
