    1. Mildly disappointed. The American Patriot saga continues. The background and storytelling are still good, at the young adult reader level. But this is one of those books that just stops; it doesn't finish.A few quibbles: No one can pick up a handmade weapon (bow or rifle, loaded by someone else or an arrow made by someone else) and make a bulls eye with the first shot. Weapons don't work that way. That's why famous marksmen had their "Ole Betsy" that they fired over and over until they knew exac [...]


    2. Good Series, but way too much Religion incertedThe author has written a really good series, but in this particular book she used religion where I fell was not necessary. The characters used religion as their guide in life, which as far as I am concerned is fine. What I object to is the author inserting religion for instead of moving the story line along.


    3. While I was swept away by the first book in the American Patriot series by J.M. Hochstetler, I was thoroughly grabbed emotionally as well by this second in the series, "Native Son". This book picks up where "Daughter of Liberty" leaves off. The newfound romance between American spy Elizabeth Howard and patriot Jonathan Carleton suffers an abrupt interruption: While they are planning their wedding, General Washington is sending them on dangerous missions that will separate them by hundreds of mil [...]


    4. Torn between two worlds, and a love that is unreachable Now known as White Eagle, he longs for Elizabeth but she's not a part of the world he is in. What do you do when your torn for one love but your duty bound to another? This story is riveting and has strong characters! You're transported back to the days of the American Revolution . You'll travel from Boston, to New York, and to Indian Country. A country that is unsettled and at war.
