My Stop On The Blog Tour For: America’s Promise: An emotional and heart-wrenching novel about the American Revolutionary War (America’s Daughter Trilogy Book 3) by Celeste De Blasis @bookouture #blogtour @absltmom
In this the third and final installment of Celeste De Blasis series, America’s Daughter, we once again witness the tragedy of war. However, this war does come to an end and it’s time for this fledgling nation to sprout its wings and try to fly.
Addie and he twin brother are back, and as the soldiers celebrate their shocking victory over the most powerful nation, at that time, we watch as each character tries to regain a life. There of course are many tragedies, many families split part by their allegiances, and of course many who are grateful that their loved ones are returning home. Many of the Loyalists are returning to England, while some to the Caribbean and to Canada. Abbie and Ad’s half-brother, Darius, is leaving America and wondering where he will fit in. Many of those who stay realize that they will never see people they cared for again.
Meanwhile Addie pregnant by a dark-haired Scottish soldier, Ian, returns home to her aunts’ home in Virginia. She loves her soldier, but fears because not only is he a soldier of the enemy but also, she is now a fallen woman. She is happily welcomed into her aunts’ home and gives birth to a daughter. Will she ever see Ian again, will he ever meet his daughter she wonders?
As the time after the war, continues, there is much agitation from the soldiers. They haven’t been paid, their clothes are ragged, and they are starving. These are intrepid men and women who gave so much for the freedom they so desired.
George Washington is exhausted. He and his wife, Martha, want nothing more than to return to their home in Mt Vernon, but the staunch and brave Washington will not desert the people who served him so well. So much was asked of this man, and the winning of the war and the country’s future seemed to rest on his most capable shoulders. He was admired and loved by the people and Ms De Blasis gives Washington his just deserts in the book.
The book was both interesting and made one appreciate so the sacrifices made by so many so we all could be free. As we celebrate our nation’s birthday, it is most imperative that we never forget the lives lost, the people who were maimed, and the utter sacrifices so many made so that we could be free.
