Brave Enemies: A Novel of the American Revolution by Robert Morgan

As the War for Independence wore on into the 1780s, unrest ruled the Carolinas. Settlers who had cleared the land after the Cherokees withdrew were being mustered for battle as British forces pillaged their hard-won farms. Robert Morgan's stunning novel tells a story of two people caught in the chaos raging in the wilderness.

After sixteen-year-old Josie Summers murders her abusive stepfather, she runs away from home disguised as a boy. Lost in the woods, she accepts a young preacher's invitation to assist in his itinerant ministry. Eventually her identity is revealed and affection grows between the two. But when the preacher is kidnapped by British soldiers, Josie disguises herself once again and joins the militia in a desperate attempt to find him.

Brave Enemies is a page-turning story of people brought together by chance and torn apart by war—a story of enduring love and of the struggle to build a homeland.

I have read all of Robert Morgans books and while I enjoyed them all, I hate the way he ends them. This book was the worst so far. He just leaves you hanging at the end and your not sure what happened.

Overall I thought this was a pretty good book, but the ending leaves a lot to be desired in my opinion. I liked the historical part of it and how it seemed to hold true with what I have learned about that time period, I said......the ending kind of leaves you hanging.

This was a really good book over-all, however the ending did leave me wanting more. This was a definate page turner. I finished it in less than 2 days. I really enjoyed Josie's character. She was a very strong woman in a time when a woman with stregnth was looked down apon. She was so well-written that it was not hard for me to think of her as very, very real. The love story was also well-written. I really felt for these conflicted, flawed people who found each other and chose to love and follow God in a time where hate was the reigning emotion in the society they lived in. Also, the battle scenes were full of suspence and kept those pages turning. The only negative thing that I can say is that there should've been an epilogue answering some questions that the reader so desperatly wants answered. If there is ever a sequal, I would be the first in line to buy it!

I just picked this book out as one of the books I was going to read on vaction. The problem is that it never made withme on my trip to the Gulf. I finished the book in two days. Because I could not put it down. I am not one who would read a love story. I got the book because of the Battle of Cowpens. I found the love story between Josie and John was my favoir part of the book. I do not what to give anything away. This book gives us many gifts. Robert Morgan gives us poetly, history, and gripping story of love. As well as a taste of the South during the Revolution. I hope Mr. Morgan will write his next book with Joise and John picking up where we last see them. A great book that you well be glad you read. It will warm your heart to the very end
