Rating: You Want to Read - A Good book.

Reviewed by: Shawn Weisser

The tropics of colonial Florida are far removed from America's Revolution. Still, Rachel Folger's loyalties remain with Boston's patriots. Handsome plantation owner Frederick Moberly's faithfulness to the Crown is as certain as his admiration for Rachel—but for the sake of harmony, he'll keep his sympathies hidden. After all, the war is too far distant to truly touch them…isn't it?

A betrayal of Rachel's trust divides the pair, leaving Frederick to question the true meaning of faith in God and in country. Inspired by Rachel to see life, liberty and love through His eyes, Frederick must harness his faith and courage to claim the woman he loves before war tears them apart.

Louise M. Gouge brought old Florida to life in her novel Love Thine Enemy. This is a wonderfully interesting love story based in Revolutionary War period. She does not bore the reader with too much dry historical fact but does entwine the story with factual data. I really enjoyed reading about the people and the place. The love story was sweet and appropriate for the period without being a “damsel in distress” novel. A really good book. I will read more.
