As his world erupts in open warfare, Robert Harris’ Quaker faith guides him away from the use of violence for any purpose, even if the war could lead to the loss of his freedom to practice that faith. Finding a balancing point between this existential threat and the commands of his inner light, while struggling against the chance effects of war, Robert must also face the challenge of an implacable foe, determined to destroy him at any cost. He must rely on the quiet guidance of his conscience to keep his family safe, and lead them to freedom.
Great historical fiction can bring history to life in a way that is very difficult to accomplish in a classroom lecture, and the Tales From a Revolution books are acclaimed both for their historical accuracy and their rich storytelling.
