Review--The Dutch Girl (Renegades of the American Revolution #4)

The Dutch Girl (Renegades of the American Revolution)The Dutch Girl by Donna Thorland
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another excellent, well researched offering from Ms. Thorland about the ordinary (yet not so ordinary) women and men who fought the American revolution. I knew little about the Dutch communities of upstate NY, and most of that came from reading Dragonwyk by Anya Seton decades ago. Even then the idea of feudalism at that level in the early American republic stunned me, and Thorland does an outstanding job of explaining how these feudal lords (in all but name) came to own people's lives, property and futures in NY.

Fans of American history and well written, well researched romance will want to check out the Renegades of the American Revolution series for some quality reading.
