Dark Sky At Dawn (Free Men and Dreamers - Volume One) By L.C. Lewis
Goodreads Description: A historical fiction surrounding the years after the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812. Free people who dream and pursue what liberty and independence should be for their families lives.
My Thoughts: The above description really does not do this book justice! The book was just packed with information about the founding of our great country. So much of it, I was not familiar with! I love how it also highlighted the faith of early Americans. This book really brought out a lot of emotions, especially when it came to the slave issue. I wonder how it would have been to actually live in those times. I really enjoy fiction books that have actual history in them. It amazes me how authors can weave wonderful fictional characters into actual events!
Now I need to read more of the series. I really want to see how this leads into the restoration of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
I won this book in a giveaway. Thanks Laurie!!
