    Celia Garth

    This was the first really "grownup" book I was ever allowed to read. I have read it many times over the past 45 years. I actually did a book report on it in school. It gives a very believable rendition of Charleston, South Carolina during the Revolutionary War.

    I have re-read Celia Garth multiple times

    I rarely re-read books -- too many unread ones out there -- but I read this when it first came out in the 60s and have re-read it many times over the years. Good story, good history, wonderful characters. It practically requires a trip to Charleston when you finish. This is where I first fell in love with Francis Marion and then went on to teach high school history. I am so happy that they are republishing the book.

    I love this book!

    This book is one of my absolute favorites! I love how real the story feels while still incorporating so much of the revolutionary war. Plus I'm s sucker for a good romance and this has a great story that has as many twists and turns as realistic life can dish out. I just love it- I've been waiting for an electronic version for a long time!

    Entertaining history

    I like to tell my 8th grade students that this was the "hot romance" being passed around when I was their age. It is actually a very good description of ordinary people living through the Revolution, showing how many were ambivalent to the cause until pushed to take sides. Gwen Bristow's books are a fun way to learn history. My issue in re-reading the book is with the very un-PC references: "servants" (never called slaves) and "colored folk" are portrayed as childlike family members. It is not clear if this is historically acurate to 1779 or to 1959 when the book was written. The book is somewhat slow starting, but there is lots of action and adventure once it gets going.
