Saratoga Letters By Elaine Marie Cooper

Title:  Saratoga Letters
Author:  Elaine Marie Cooper
Pages:  360
Year:  2016
Publisher:  Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas
My rating is 5 stars.
What an amazing storyteller the author is as her talent really shines throughout the novel!  The setting is during the Revolutionary War in New York where a young lady is alone in her cabin after her father dies.  Her cruel uncle comes and demands she help bring aid to the British, knowing she had patriotic leanings.  In order to use her to his side’s benefit, he takes her to a local hospital on a farm and introduces her as Mrs. Gillingham when she really is single, but women aren’t allowed to nurse unless they are married.
Now, 200 years later, an ancestor of the brave Mrs. Gillingham is returning for the bicentennial celebration of those whose ancestors served during the birth of America’s freedom.  Ian comes all the way from London to honor his father, who had died.  The Battle of Saratoga was one that brought astounding results to both armies and therefore to their descendants.
 Here is such a gripping tale that I couldn’t help but be drawn into and anticipate how the plot was going to end!  My heart was stirred as various actions and words brought to my mind bravery, honesty, chivalry, and the high cost many paid for America to be a nation.  There is mystery, action, danger, adventure, revenge, faith, and so much more.  I cannot say enough about how thoroughly enjoyable this book was to me.  It is fast paced with never a dull moment!
I hope that you will read the book and consider gifting a copy to other readers you know who love a good story with action and romance thrown in.  I will long remember this tale and after some time has passed I am sure I will reread it to enjoy it once again.  What an interesting way to tell a story that ties people together with 200 years in between!  Brilliant!

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
