A Bunch of Books Set During the American Revolution

Happy Independence Day to my fellow Americans! We certainly aren’t a perfect country but I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else ♥ (except maybe during election season lol). Way back in 2018 I did a pretty comprehensive post on Revolutionary War reads but – as is inevitable – I neglected to mention a few AND several more have released since then. So I thought today would be the perfect time to revisit this topic and, thus, I give you a bunch MORE books set during the American Revolution. Most of these take place during the years of actual war – from 1775-1783 (did you know it lasted 8 years? Many Americans don’t realize how long it was) – but some take place just before, during the stirrings of unrest. I came to a much greater appreciation of the American Revolution and what led up to it when I taught a class to help refugees and immigrants prepare for the US Citizenship test, and it’s been one of my favorite time periods to read about ever since.

    I love your post, Carrie. The earlier one as well. The American Revolution is my favorite historical genre and it’s hard to find quality stories in Christian fiction. I do have two favorites that I highly recommend and don’t believe you’ve mentioned. Both are 5 star reads.

    1) Daughter of Liberty by J. M. Hochstetler. First in American Patriot series. Excellent writing, storyline, and a romance to die for. I haven’t read further, but hope to soon.

    2) The Courier of Caswell Hall by Melanie Dobson. The Kindle version has been retitled as The Imposter: A Legacy of Love Novel. Same elements as other book, but probably not as deep or complex.

    I’m not sure I’ve read any historical fiction focused on this era, but you have some good suggestions.

    I have a lot of reading to do based upon this list! I have read When the Day Comes and have several others like The Tea Chest and The Washington Lady. I will probably start there. Thanks for the list! I always love them!
