    As a longtime fan of Collen Coble, it pains me to write this review. I have loved every book of hers I've ever read whether it be suspense or historical fiction. However, this book was just one I didn't enjoy and at times had to force myself to read. I'm used to historical fiction b...

    Colleen Coble is one of my favourite authors. I love her suspense. This was my first historical novel by her, and though different to her suspense novels, I enjoyed it. Now, this book will not be for some readers, due to the more adult content, but for me there was so much lessons t...

    2 stars I have recently become a fan of historical fiction and I adore Colleen Coble's books, so I was eagerly looking forward to this book. Unfortunately, Freedom?s Light was a great disappointment to me. I am not entirely sure why either. The historical accuracy was completely o...

    As a longtime fan of Collen Coble, it pains me to write this review. I have loved every book of hers I've ever read whether it be suspense or historical fiction. However, this book was just one I didn't enjoy and at times had to force myself to read. I'm used to historical fiction b...

    Colleen Coble is one of my favourite authors. I love her suspense. This was my first historical novel by her, and though different to her suspense novels, I enjoyed it. Now, this book will not be for some readers, due to the more adult content, but for me there was so much lessons t...

    Fans of Colleen Coble are in for a treat with the publication of this early novel, as are those with a taste for stories set in the American Revolution but reminiscent ofVictorian melodrama, with sin leading to death and madness. Widowed lighthouse-keeper Hannah sends for her youn...

    Freedom's Light is a rich historical story of the Revolutionary War and how it affected families, friends and neighbors - how some chose to side with Britain instead of fighting for freedom of the new country. Hannah Smith became keeper of the lighthouse on the rocky Massachusetts co...

    Title: Freedom?s Light Author: Colleen Coble Pages: 320 Year: 2018 Publisher: Thomas Nelson My rating is 4 out of 5 stars. Hannah Thomas is a young, 18-year-old woman who has been married for a year to a man twenty years her senior. She married him to escape the unwanted advanc...

    I am happy to say that Colleen Coble's style of suspense and drama kept this book from being "just another love story" in the way I've come to expect. Bad things happened to the characters that made me just cringe. It was so hard to not want to just shake Lydia for her stupidity and ob...
