Ring of Secrets

Ring of Secrets
By Roseanna M. White

About the book:
1779—Winter Reeves is an aristocratic American Patriot forced to hide her heart amid the British Loyalists of the city of New York. She has learned to keep her ears open so she can pass information on British movements to Robbie Townsend, her childhood friend, and his spy ring. If she’s caught, she will be executed for espionage, but she prays the Lord’s protection will sustain her, and Robbie has taught her the tools of the trade—the wonders of invisible ink, secret drop locations and, most importantly, a good cover.
Bennet Lane returns to New York from his Yale professorship with one goal: to find General Washington’s spy hidden among the ranks of the city’s elite. Searching for a wife was supposed to be nothing more than a convenient cover story for his mission, but when he meets Winter, with her too-intelligent eyes in her too-blank face, he finds a mystery that can’t be ignored.
Both are determined to prevail at any cost…and each is committed to a separate cause. Will God lead them to a shared destiny or lives lived apart?

My thoughts:
Roseanna White really knows how to make history come alive. " Ring of Secrets" is a jam-packed, fast paced, spy novel. I don't know if I've ever read a book like it.

Winter, keeps her true personality secret. She acts unintelligent so people will tell her things. As she appears harmless she wins the affection of two opposite men and must decide which and which side she's on.

Throughout the book I was never quite sure what Winter would do. "Ring of Secrets"has a smart, tangled plot filled with romance, history, and suspense.

*I received this book free for review from Harvest House Publishers*
