Reviewed by Heather Osborne for Readers' Favorite Letters to Kezia: Book Two of the Puritan Chronicles by Peni Jo Renner tells the tragic, yet heartwarming story of Mary Case, a Puritan girl in the settlement of Hereford, Connecticut. The daughter of the minister of the settlement finds herself enraptured with a thief and rogue, Daniel Eames. Succumbing to his pleas to help him escape the jail, Eames flees, with Mary in tow. Thrown into this mix is a man, Noah Parker, whom Mary and her family trusted to be a loyal successor to her father, but he is less than honorable. Forced to return to the village by ruthless men on the hunt for Eames, no matter what the cost, Mary must face her own accusers, as well as her conscience. A bittersweet novel, Letters to Kezia captivated me from page one. I felt so much for Mary’s plight, attracted to a man who was considered beneath her by Puritan society. She was used as a pawn in many cases, both by Noah and her father, although his motives were entirely selfless. I enjoyed how the novel was laid out, third person narrative interspersed with first person perspective in the form of the letters to Mary’s daughter, Kezia. I must also comment on the historical accuracy. Miss Renner has clearly taken great time and effort to convey as realistic an environment as possible, while still providing a very engaging story. Letters to Kezia: Book Two of the Puritan Chronicles by Peni Jo Renner is a definite must-read for any fan of historical fiction with an interest in Puritan life, with the added bonus of a tragic love story.

.   I loved this book. The author Peni Jo Renner, has built fictional story around documented historical events in the lives of two people.  I found myself while immerse deeply in the Colonial period, rooting for the bad guy. I hoped that these lovers would escape the posse that chased them through the dark woods, and deep into Indian territory.  This book is masterfully written, full of scandal, intrigue, and suspense.  I highly recommend it. I couldn’t put it down.  Peni tells a very believable story. It could truly have happened this way.
