The Courier of Caswell Hall

This book review is for the novel "The Courier of Caswell Hall" by Melanie Dobson.

This is wonderful historical novel set during the American Revolution.
Melanie's writing really pulls you into this important period in our history during her story.
You can almost imagine being in the stunning plantations and walking the creaking halls of the magnificent old houses that once stood so proudly despite the scars and stories that were hidden behind their walls.

You have two women who are the best of friends but oh so different in the fight for freedom.

Lydia Caswell is a member of a serious Loyalist family who fall on the Kings side of things and then you have the sister of her fiancé and her very best friend, Sarah Hammond.

Lydia is desperate for peace. That is all she wants. For her fiancé to come home and make things right with her father and for things to be back to normal. Except her fiancé is for freedom while her father is for King and she fears that nothing will be quite the same ever again.

One restless night for Lydia will change the direction of her life forever.
The wounded man she courageously saves despite not knowing where his affiliation lies surprisingly survives the night. Nathan is disorientated when he awakens and in serious pain but he has been granted a second chance to deliver the imperative message that he carried before his injury.

Nathan introduces Lydia the Patriot side of things and hopes to sway her loyalties.

Neither like the fact that loved ones have been so divided by the war that is raging but both realize a side must be chosen once and for all and a stand must be made no matter which side you come down on.
I really enjoyed reading about this time in history and really liked Lydia's character.
Lydia and Sarah's story lines kept me turning the pages and I think you will like it as well!
