This is such an interesting historical novel. It grabbed my attention from page one and kept it throughout. Not only is the story itself very good but the way it is intertwined with true events was done extremely well. The research is so accurate it continued to amaze me. I have lived in the Philadelphia area for most of my life and did not know these pieces of history. The storyline kept my fiction side interested and the true events fascinated my historical side. A great book! I hope to see and read more from Mr. Shefski!
