Ring of Secrets--Book Review

Ring of Secrets
(Culper Ring Series #1)
by Roseanna M. White

About the Book:

Ring of Secrets, Culper Ring Series #1   -     
        By: Roseanna M. White
    
1779-Winter Reeves is an aristocratic Patriot forced to hide her heart amid the Loyalists of the City of New York. She has learned to keep her ears open so she can pass information on British movements to Robbie Townsend, her childhood friend, and his spy ring. If she's caught, if she's hung for espionage...well, she won't be. Robbie has taught her the tools of the trade: the wonders of invisible ink, drop locations and, most importantly, a good cover.

Bennet Lane returns to New York from his Yale professorship with one goal: to find General Washington's spy hidden among the ranks of the elite. Searching for a wife was supposed to be nothing more than a convenient cover story for his mission, but when he meets Winter, with her too-intelligent eyes in her too-blank face, he finds a mystery that 
can't be ignored.

Both believers...and both committed to a separate cause. Will their faith in God lead them to a shared destiny or lives lived apart?

My Review:
Ring of Secrets had me biting my nails a few times during the story. It was a bit hard for me to get into but once I got past the entry it was pretty good. I loved how the story took a few twists that left my mouth agape.

It's hard to fathom the life of Miss Winter Reeves. Not only is she a spy for the Rebels, which is not tolerated, but her grandparents are nothing close to loving. Following Winter through the book will break your heart, and all the while have you cheering her on. 

Bennet Lane. What an interesting character! He has the hardest time talking to the ladies which I thought funny, yet when it comes to Miss Reeves he has no problem at all. He is immediately on to the fact that she is hiding something. But what? 

I enjoyed the end of the book. It didn't turn out like I thought it would; it came out better! It makes a huge difference when we choose to put our trust in God instead of what science tells us is true. 

If you would like to follow the Rebel spy's of the Culper Ring, I encourage you to pick up this book. I will be looking forward to book two!
