Finished!! I loved it. Sad to see the end of the book finally come. I’m not a book reviewer and have rarely read much fiction but this was a game changer for me. Mr.Bennett has a style of writing that grabs you at the onset and brings his subjects to life. I felt as if I was there. Having not known much of the twenty years or so leading up to the events of 1776 I came away with a new appreciation of how hard life was then. This was such an enjoyable read that I can hardly wait for the authors next book. Thank you for turning me back on to fiction. (With a few facts thrown in, of course) I’m already missing Otetiani.
