British Captain James Higley makes the decision to support the Patriot cause long before the Revolutionary War officially starts. Six years later, the war is underway, and James is a spy in service to Washington. While on a mission he is forced to kidnap Caroline Whitney, a Patriot who is in danger of being put on trial by the British. As they make their way to Boston they strike a bargain. She agrees to cooperate as long as James helps her to free her brother Enoch, a Patriot soldier imprisoned there. With danger constantly near, they have to learn to rely on each other despite their seemingly different loyalties. As their feelings grow stronger for each other, their hearts and minds become more conflicted than ever. As usual, Amber Lynn Perry writes with such drama and rich descriptions! The way that the story of James, Caroline, and Enoch concludes is so exciting! I feel as though I’m being transported back in time almost 250 years ago, personally witnessing the grave danger the came to both soldiers and everyday citizens. I am in awe of the bravery and boldness shown by both the characters in this whole series and by the real names and faces of the Revolution, some of whom were never rich or famous. As James says at the beginning of the story, “Liberty is the eternal gift. With it, we have everything. Without, naught at all.” This perfectly captures the hope and message of the Daughters of His Kingdom series, and I highly recommend reading all of them, and in order! I received a copy of this book from the author and am under no obligation to provide a positive review. All opinions are my own.

When I started reading So Bright A Hope I didn't realize that it was book 5 in a series. I will say that you can read this one as a stand-alone, but I did feel like I was missing some things about side characters that I might have known more about if I'd read the other books. I enjoyed the story a lot more than I thought I would. I liked Caroline as the MC. She's willing to do whatever it takes to find her brother and save him. I also enjoyed the love interest. It's sort of got that forbidden love feel and that's always fun to read. Throughout the middle of the book, things did get a little slower, but it never completely slowed me down when reading. I am interested in reading more of the author's books in the future. I received a copy of this book from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

Amber Lynn Perry has set her Daughters of His Kingdom series in my favorite historical era, that of the American Revolution. Not only will these stories capture your interest and entertain, but they will cause you to reflect on the values of freedom and liberty, as well as the sacrifice of brave men and women who fought for those values. So Bright a Hope is rich in historical detail, as is Perry’s passion for this time period. I couldn’t help but be drawn to both lead characters – Captain James Higley of the British military, a man of honor, courage, and skill who is much more than he seems; and Caroline, a Patriot determined to get to her prisoner-of-war brother. Romance fans will love the chemistry between these two. The pace is swift, with plenty of suspense, intrigue, adventure and drama. While I might wish for the absence of the Redcoat Greene, a cunning and evil villain, he is essential to the story. But there’s also inspiration, humor, and a steady thread of hope. The author has created many memorable characters throughout the series and I especially loved how they were all connected. There’s some great twists in this story, followed by a very satisfying conclusion. Recommended to all who enjoy early American history. I received a copy of this book through JustRead Tours.

A spy who isn't a spy and the enemy who isn't an enemy Caroline, according to James, was a terrible liar. As in she didn’t lie well. Her face gave her away every time she tried. He, on the other hand, was in a position that his life depended on his ability to pretend. I was made to really care for Caroline and James in So Bright a Hope. Poor Caroline had been made to believe that no man could love her the way she was. And James felt so guilty because of a grave mistake he had made in the past. I found it interesting that the story was told from three different perspectives, the third being that of a British soldier who sought the informant passing intelligence to the rebels. This officer was a perfectly loathsome man as all good villains should be. The romance between Caroline and James developed at a believable rate and was sweet as they helped each other to see their worth. I enjoyed Caroline’s propensity to act first and think later. She managed to create a number of dangerous situations through her impulsive actions. There was an incident at the end of the book that I didn’t really understand. It just didn’t make sense to me. But it didn’t detract from my enjoyment of the book. While it was obvious this was part of a series from the way some of the characters were referenced, I didn’t feel like I was lost for not having read the other books. I am now curious about them and may go back and read them. Read with a Preview at AmongTheReads.net I was given a copy of this book for free.

What a fabulous story! This is the first book by Amber Lynn Perry that I have read and I can’t believe I haven’t read her books sooner since I love historical romance. This is the fifth and last book in the Daughters of His Kingdom series. It can be read as a stand-alone but, if you’ve not read the series previously, I recommend at least reading through the book blurbs of the first four books prior to reading this one so that the you become familiar with the protagonists of those stories. They are all intricately intertwined in this story. The writing is authentic and easy to follow, the plot is well-crafted and suspenseful at times, the characters are simply lovely, and the element of faith is consistent in the characters’ lives. If you enjoy historical romance set during Revolutionary War time, you will absolutely love this book. Caroline, a stubborn, intelligent, opinionated, and somewhat reckless Patriot, finds herself in a daze of grief, confusion, and anger when her world falls apart with her brother’s death in the Continental Army and with being captured as a “spy” by the British. James, a British Army captain who is a double agent for the Continental Army, is a kind, tender, intelligent, compassionate man who tasks himself to protect Caroline when he sees no other way of helping her. Both have hearts full of love that only each other can unlock but mistrust, deception, and pain from the past all become stumbling blocks. There are some heart-wrenching and tender scenes in the book that are unforgettable. Now I must go back and read the other books in the series....
