Cover Crush: The Tory Widow by Christine Blevins

The Tory WidowI absolutely adore American History and how this great nation was founded. I am really looking forward to reading this book and I LOVE the book cover! I think it’s perfect for the story and I am delighted to see a picture of a woman without her entire head missing from the layout! Okay, okay… I have to admit something. This book falls under the Genre-Romance as well as 18th Century Literature. I am not a fan of romance stories. Having said that, because of the cover and the historical influence of the story, I’m willing to give it a go.

Book Description:

On a bright May day in New York City, Anne Peabody receives an unexpected kiss from a stranger. Bringing news of the repeal of the Stamp Act, Jack Hampton, a member of the Sons of Liberty, abruptly sweeps Anne into his arms, kisses her-and then leaves her to her fate of an arranged marriage…

1775: Nearly ten years have passed and Anne, now the Widow Merrick, continues her late husband’s business printing Tory propaganda, not because she believes in the cause, but because she needs the money to survive. When her shop is ransacked by the Sons of Liberty, Anne once again comes face to face with Jack and finds herself drawn to the ardent patriot and his rebel cause.

As shots ring out at Lexington and war erupts, Anne is faced with a life-altering decision: sit back and watch her world torn apart, or stand and fight for both her country’s independence and her own.
