A Different Kind of Courage
A well researched novel set at the dawn of the American Revolution, A Different Kind of Courage follows the struggles of a young man reluctant to take sides in the conflict. Returning to Boston after a long time away, William Landor arrives just before the closing of the harbor. William desires the approval of his Tory father, but also sympathizes with his friend, Dr. Joseph Warren on the other side of the argument. I enjoyed sharing in William's journey from confusion to resolution. The highlight of the book for me, however, was being introduced to Dr. Joseph Warren and his depth of character. I will definitely be looking into him more closely in future reading.
It is definitely worth a read. :)
