The Messenger by Siri Mitchell

This is a good curl-up book, I started reading and just had to finish it! Hannah, who is a Quaker really struggles between her faith and her heart. Her brother ends up in trouble but she is unable to help or comfort him due to her faith. Will she follow her heart? Or will she do as she is suppose to as a Quaker and not pick sides?

Jermiah is a Colonial spy and really asks some hard things of Hannah. She is put in the hot spot on more than one occasion for her beliefs. She has to come to terms with what she believes and how she will be able to balance those beliefs with being able to help out Jeremiah and her brother.

This book is set in Philadelphia under the British Occupation. It makes you wonder what you would have done in the same position. What are your core values? Are you willing to change those values or work with them to achieve something that is dangerous but is worth changing?

I would recommend you grabbing the book for with yourself or as a gift for someone on your holiday list.

I did receive a copy of this book from Bethany House free of charge. Thank you very much! All they ask of me is to post  my own personal review on the book, either positive or negative.
