After three years in England, William Landor returns to Boston in 1774, little knowing the events that are about to unfold.
England has issued an ultimatum: pay for the tea that was destroyed in the Boston Tea Party, or the Port of Boston will be closed. William knows that this will have a devastating effect on his hometown, which is so dependent on the sea. However, he finds himself in the middle of the political struggle he wanted to avoid.
William’s father is a merchant and loyal to the king and is furious at what the rebels of Boston have cost him. He would like nothing more than to rid the city of their poisonous influence. Meanwhile, William’s best friend, Dr. Joseph Warren, is one of the leaders of rebels, or Whigs as they call themselves.
As if his life was not complicated enough, he meets a fiery indentured servant who tugs at his heart as well as his loyalty. When he is confronted by the consequences of his many secrets, he has to make a choice whether or not to tell the truth. Does he have the kind of courage it will take?
Genre: Historical Fiction.
My Rating: 5 Stars. A Different Kind Of Courage is my favorite book set during the American Revolution.
Recommendation: Anyone. Especially if you like historical fiction books.
My favorite character/s: William Landor, he has just returned from England with a pile of secrets which keeps growing. He is torn when he has to choose between his father Britain, or his
friends, the patriot’s cause, and the patriot indentured servant girl that he is starting to care for more then he should.
My Verse for William is Romans 8:28
