    Love in a time of war

    War changes people and living in a war zone either makes or breaks a person. War changed Amy from a naive, carefree young Southern belle to a wary, determined woman who knew what she wanted. When Benjamin returns after three unexplained years away from home, Amy is in no frame of mind to accept his request to court her. Ben has fixed ideas about the role his wife will fulfil, and Amy has no intention of fitting into his plans. When Amy's sister needs her help, Amy leaves town, thereby missing the announcement that will bring about even more change to their lives, as well as increased danger. This book covers a sad period in the history between the "Colonies" and Britain, bringing out all the deprivation and dangers facing the populace, as well as the risks taken to ensure that the lines of supply were kept open. Nevertheless, as a romance it was sad book to read as a certain amount of bitterness had settled on Amy, making it difficult for her to accept Ben's attentions. On the other hand Ben had a few lessons to learn, and it was well that he was faced with circumstances that made him rethink his position. I received this book for free from eBook Discovery. I voluntarily post this review. This is my honest review.

    Mediocre romance ser in late 1700's Americana

    I received a copy of this book from eBook Discovery in exchange for an honest review. Amy's Choice, the second book in Betty Bolté's series A More Perfect Union, takes the reader back in time to when America was still fighting for its independence from Britain. The book didn't WOW me the way other romance stories have in the past largely because the story and it's eventual outcome was apparent almost from the start. Amy's Choice is reminiscent of Margaret O'Hare's book Gone With The Wind. Therein lies the problem with Bolté's book for me. Bolté's female and male leads, Amy Abernathy and Major Benjamin Hanson, are almost exact copies of Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler. The "copy cat" feeling lurking in the back of my mind while reading Amy's Choice was not only disappointing and distracting but also took a lot of the wind out of the plot for me with regards to the lead characters. Bolté's secondary characters were the saving grace of the book in my opinion. Amy's supporting cast of friends - Emily, Evelyn and Samantha - allow the reader the opportunity to see Bolté's talent as a writer. In spite of the similarities between Bolté and O'Hare's books, I would recommend Amy's Choice to readers preferring a clean romance where a "less in the bedroom" attitude is more suitable.
