During 1781, the Continental and British armies are at war, a war that pits father against son, brother against brother, and neighbor against neighbor. In Virginia, Lydia Caswell only wants the two sides to have peace, unlike her Loyalists parents or even her friend Sarah Hammond, who might just grab a gun and join the fight.

By chance, Lydia finds a wounded man near a riverbank on a snowy night. This happens to be the same night the British made plans on sailing up the James River and raiding the capital. The man is named Nathan, who changes her life forever, introducing her to a world of coded messages, disguises, couriers and spies.

As Lydia starts to fall in love with Nathan, she starts to question her beliefs. She must choose between the loyalty to her family and having freedom. Meanwhile, her friend Sarah is put in a similar position when love and war collide.

The An American Tapestry has been an interesting series with each book taking place in a different time and location in history. The Courier of Caswell Hall takes place during the American Revolutionary War. I have only read a few historical-romances set during this era, as most books in the genre are set during the 1800s. Melanie Dobson is a wonderful author and she has created great characters and an intriguing plot with her newest release. I was hooked into the story from page one and I finished reading the entire book in one afternoon. The Courier of Caswell Hall is well-written historical-romance and I recommend it to all readers.
