Goodreads Summary: Our Own Country (Audible)
MUST READ A Midwife’s Revolt FIRST
In 1770s Boston, a prosperous merchant’s daughter, Eliza Boylston, lives a charmed life—until war breaches the walls of the family estate and forces her to live in a world in which wealth can no longer protect her.
As the chaos of the Revolutionary War tears her family apart, Eliza finds herself drawn to her uncle’s slave, John Watkins. Their love leads to her exile in Braintree, Massachusetts, home to radicals John and Abigail Adams and Eliza’s midwife sister-in-law, Lizzie Boylston. But even as the uprising takes hold, Eliza can’t help but wonder whether a rebel victory will grant her and John the most basic of American rights.
My Review – 5 stars
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS BOOK
Also a lesson for everyone, we are all Americans. We all have put in energy and effort into our country and should all enjoy the freedom, not just those deemed better than others.
In addition the first Americans, were also from another country…taking it away from those who were natives to the country.
So many lessons in this amazing book.
~~~Now I’m Reading~~~
The year is 1946, and all over the world, young women are crossing the seas in the thousands en route to the men they married in wartime – and an unknown future. In Sydney, Australia, four women join 650 other brides on an extraordinary voyage to England, aboard the HMS Victoria, which also carries not just arms and aircraft but 1,000 naval officers and men. Rules of honour, duty, and separation are strictly enforced, from the aircraft carrier’s captain down to the lowliest young stoker. But the men and the brides will find their lives intertwined in ways the Navy could never have imagined.
LOVE JoJo Moyes and on a historical fiction kick, so this will be fun to read.
