Vivienne Rivard fled revolutionary France and seeks a new life for herself and a boy in her care, who some say is the Dauphin. But America is far from safe, as militiaman Liam Delaney knows. He proudly served in the American Revolution but is less sure of his role in the Whiskey Rebellion. Drawn together, will Liam and Vivienne find the peace they long for?
A Refuge Assured by Jocelyn Green is full of historical events like the Whiskey Rebellion. I felt as though I have traveled back in time. The characters really portrayed their time periods. The accents and actions made the historical moments come alive. I was impressed. The plot was steady but good. Danger, risks, and hope are filled on these pages. A single woman traveling with a boy under her care looking for a safe place. A man wanting to run his farm but might be forced to fight for it again. These were strong independent characters. I could easily relate to their troubles and connect with them on many levels. Overall, it was a great read. I recommend it to others.
