Product Description

Hannah Sunderland felt content in her embrace of the Quaker faith until her twin brother ran off and joined the army and ended up captured and in jail. Suddenly Hannah's world turns on end. She longs to bring her brother some measure of comfort in the squalid, frigid prison where he remains. But the Quakers believe they are not to take sides, not to take up arms. Can she sit by and do nothing while he suffers?

Jeremiah Jones has an enormous task before him. Responsibility for a spy ring is now his, and he desperately needs access to the men in prison, whom they are seeking to free. A possible solution is to garner a pass for Hannah. But while she is fine to the eye, she holds only disdain for him--and agreeing would mean disobeying those she loves and abandoning a bedrock of her faith.

Publisher's Description

A Riveting Tale of Faith and Romance by an Acclaimed Novelist

Hannah Sunderland felt content in her embrace of the Quaker faith

...until her twin brother ran off and joined the army and ended up captured and in jail. Suddenly Hannah's world turns on end. She longs to bring her brother some measure of comfort in the squalid, frigid prison where he remains. But the Quakers believe they are not to take sides, not to take up arms. Can she sit by and do nothing while he suffers?

Jeremiah Jones has an enormous task before him. Responsibility for a spy ring is now his, and he desperately needs access to the men in prison, whom they are seeking to free. A possible solution is to garner a pass for Hannah. But while she is fine to the eye, she holds only disdain for him--and agreeing would mean disobeying those she loves and abandoning a bedrock of her faith.

With skill and sensitivity, Mitchell tells a story of two unlikely heroes seeking God's voice, finding the courage to act, and discovering the powerful embrace of love.

    If an author can keep me interested in historical fiction it has to be a great story and this was. I enjoyed it from beginning to end. The variety of characters kept the book very interesting. I enjoyed the light romance but most of all appreciated Hannah's strong faith and her obedience in listening to God's voice.

    So the Revolutionary War + British-occupied Philedelphia + George Washington's spies + a Quaker girl questioning her beliefs on non-violence = Amazing! As I've come to expect, Siri Mitchell once again takes Historical Romantic Suspense to new levels with The Messenger. Don't miss this one.

    This is the third book for me by this author, and I had hoped I would have developed a liking for this authors writing style, but I have found that I have not. This is not the author for me.

    While I loved the history of the revolutionary war, the intrigue about the way messages were passed and the depth of research into the Quaker faith, I felt that the characters themselves fell flat. I didn't fell that Hannah and Jeremiah had any chemistry between them. To me they felt like they were more like passing friends rather than people who were supposed to be falling in love with each other. The jail scenes were a bit more graphic than I would have like to have seen in a christian novel, and I would have like to have seen Jeremiah understand faith at the very least. The author did nothing to resolve this issue, and there was also no mention of Jesus or the cross which bothered me a lot.

    This was a book that could have been sold as a secular book and probably would do very well.

    A masterful Revolutionary War tale, well written with stellar main characters.

    Hannah Sunderland's world is changing fast, and not for the better. Her family's house is taken over by a British officer, her brother is imprisoned. Hannah is determined to do anything to help her brother, but what if it means becoming a spy?

    I was amazed at how much I liked this novel. The depth made it riveting and I really appreciated the historical details. The characters were well written and I enjoyed the way they interacted with each other.

    Both of the characters were written in first-person so it really helped me understand the characters to be able to "see" their thoughts. I think Ms. Mitchell did a really good job with the details, that really made this book pop. And I liked how this book realistically portrayed what was going on with the soldiers taking over their house and how the Quakers tried to stay neutral.

    Overall, this was a skillfully written read with well built characters, and a vivid setting. There were times that I felt that there wasn't a whole lot going on, but those parts had some great dialogue going on. So I would recommend this book for someone who is looking for a heavier read, and enjoys historic details :)

    I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review, thank you!

    Hannah Sunderland is stuck between a rock and a hard place-follow the rules of her faith and try to forget her brother, or do her best to care for him as he languishes in a British prison. How to choose? As she battles between loyalties, Hannah encounters Jeremiah Jones, a tavern owner who also happens to be a Colonial spy. He needs someone who can get in and out of the jail and avoid suspicion and who better than the sister of a prisoner bringing food and blankets? As they work together, their partnership grows into something more.

    This was a very enjoyable read, and Siri is one of my favorite authors. My only disappointment is I would have liked more romantic elements than there were in this book, but that's just me :) Thank you to Bethany House for providing me with a copy for my honest review!
