America’s Wife is the second book in the America’s Daughter Trilogy.  After reading the first book in the trilogy America’s Daughter I was over the moon excited to dive into this one, and I absolutely loved it.

It’s 1776 and Addie’s world has completely changed since her privileged life in Boston. The Revolutionary War rages on and Addie’s brothers and the love of her life, Silas, are in the middle of the fight.  They are fighting to shape the country that they know and love.  But when Silas doesn’t  return from the Battle of Monmouth, Addie leaves the safety net of Washington’s camp and goes into the battlefield searching for him.  When Addie receives word that Silas has been captured and is being held by the British, she makes it her mission to bring Silas home.  But, then when Addie is searching for Silas she comes face to face with John Traverne, a man she can’t seem to forget, she soon finds herself in an impossible situation of love and war, having to choose between two men that hold a special place in her heart.  

This extraordinary and engaging read was absolutely amazing.  The well developed characters, and phenomenal storyline will have you flying through the pages.  But, keep your Kleenex box nearby because you will surely need it.  Thank you Celeste De Blasis for this fantastic read, I loved everything about this book.

1776. Addie’s world has changed beyond recognition. From her privileged position amongst Boston’s elite, she has embraced a dangerous new life with the American Revolutionary Army. While childhood sweetheart Silas risks all on the front lines, Addie waits anxiously for news. And when Silas does not return from the Battle of Monmouth, her worst fears come true.

Without thinking, Addie takes a horse and scours the now-calm battlefield for Silas, until word arrives that he has been captured by the British. And worse, by the troop of Scottish Highlanders led by the brooding general John Traverne. Addie hasn’t seen the powerfully built Loyalist soldier since she chose the Revolutionary cause over her own heart, and hearing his name sends butterflies to her stomach, even as she is filled with worry for Silas.

Disregarding her own safety, Addie leaves Washington’s camp and travels deep into enemy territory, determined to bring Silas home. But when she comes face to face with John Traverne once more, the feelings she has tried so hard to bury resurface and she must choose between the man she has pledged her life to, and the man whose dark eyes haunt her dreams. When Addie finally returns to her own camp, she carries a secret that could cost her everything she has fought for…
