So Bright a Hope (Daughters of His Kingdom #5)
When Caroline Whitney receives word that the brother she thought was dead is in fact a prisoner of war, she is frantic to rescue him. On the way to find help, she hides from the Redcoats, but is quickly discovered by a rugged British soldier who claims she must go with him, or be tried for espionage. The world would tell her this man is the enemy, but the veiled secrets in her captor’s eyes reveal he is more than he seems. If she fails to trust, more could be endangered than her life—her heart is bound to be broken a second time. As a double agent in the service of Washington, British Captain James Higley must keep his true convictions a secret or face being killed as a traitor. On his newest mission, he discovers a courageous woman hiding in a barn, and is forced to capture her, or both their lives will be in jeopardy. When she offers her compliance in exchange for help in finding her brother, he accepts, despite his inner warnings. He must keep his distance from this alluring Patriot, or risk revealing not only his identity, but the true feelings of his heart.

    Spies and kisses--the perfect combination to make you swoon! Amber Lynn Perry masterfully places you within the battle of the American Revolution with an honor-bond hero and a too-courageous-for-her-own-good heroine. Throw in a dastardly villain and you have the makings of hours of reading enjoyment. Pick this one up guys! Especially for fans of Laura Frantz and Tamara Leigh.

British Captain James Higley is swathed in mystique; wearing a bright red coat while shuttling secrets to the Patriots, he plays a dangerous game; one that takes his total concentration, for one false move would jeopardize lives on both sides of America's vicious fight for freedom. The one distraction that he doesn't need, and has escaped for years, is a beautiful woman, one whose courage and determination in the face of danger has involuntarily cracked open James' resolution to maintain his role as her enemy. Caroline Whitney is desperate; upon learning that her brother is imprisoned rather than dead, she impulsively flees her home to seek advice from her cousin. Upon arriving at the deserted foundry, she barely escapes notice by two British officers who happen upon the location, for a private meeting. Overhearing their conversation, she unsuccessfully tries to slip past the two Redcoats, who proceed to apprehend her as a spy. One of them is different; kinder, perhaps . . . . but it really doesn't matter, because in the end, she is forced upon his horse in spite of his quiet admonition to trust him. "She had no hope. She had nothing." Amber Lynn Perry has concluded her "Daughter of His Kingdom" series on a thrilling high note, surrounding her characters with danger and peril on every side, skillfully magnifying their courage; the kind of courage that built this "land of the free and the home of the brave", gifting generations to come with the hope of freedom.

    SO BRIGHT A HOPE is just that, a story about a hope for freedom and for family and love that is just bright enough that is drives these characters on as they fight for freedom. Set during the Revolutionary War between those on both sides of the battle makes for a suspenseful and intriguing read. However, what most endures the reader to this story are its two main characters who risk all to save those they love and fight for what they believe is right. Fans of the genre and of the series will fin SO BRIGHT A HOPE is just that, a story about a hope for freedom and for family and love that is just bright enough that is drives these characters on as they fight for freedom. Set during the Revolutionary War between those on both sides of the battle makes for a suspenseful and intriguing read. However, what most endures the reader to this story are its two main characters who risk all to save those they love and fight for what they believe is right. Fans of the genre and of the series will find much to love in this story.I frankly just adored these characters! Caroline is sweet, smart, and has quite a backbone. She can also be quite ferocious when she's fighting for what is hers. She was a little quick to act without thought and wasn't quite as worried about danger as I thought she should be, but otherwise, I really enjoyed getting to know her. James or Captain Higley was fabulous. He's a man you can't help but admire, while also fearing that he won't remain safe in the end. He's quite the gentleman and I loved his interactions with Caroline, but also with others who he calls friends. There are also cameos of characters from prior books in the series, for those who have read the other books and may be interested. I didn't read the other books, but I didn't have any issues following this story.There were just a few things that didn't work for me. Some included the ease that the rebels' camps were overtaken and Caroline captured. As I mentioned, I also felt Caroline was a little too forward and fearless in some situations given the setting. And one other thing... some of the story dragged and there were areas that were fairly long-winded (like when some soldiers are in a line ready to be executed and then there are four plus pages of dialogue why they're standing there, which seemed overly dramatic and unrealistic). Otherwise, this was a very enjoyable story.In the end, was it what I wished for? The inspirational element was present, but not overbearing, and was weaved through the story quite well. The setting kept things quite entertaining, while providing likable characters with a romance that was sweet with plenty of chemistry. An overall enjoyable story. Content: Some innuendo and violence, but clean.Source: I received a complimentary copy from JustRead Tours, which did not require a positive review nor affect it in any way.

    I have loved every book by Amber Lynn Perry and So Bright A Hope is no different. She knows how to write a fabulous historical romance and her talent continues to shine through with Caroline and James. I am so sad to say goodbye to the Daughters of his Kingdom series. I have no doubt this author will have yet another winning series in the near future. Which I cannot wait to see what that will be. I give So Bright A Hope well-deserved 5+ stars. Well done, Amber!

    I enjoyed this conclusion to the series and was thrilled to see there will be another series starting with a secondary character. It is hard to find books that make you feel like you are experiencing the Revolutionary war, but this one does. It was worth the wait, that is for sure.

Meet Caroline Whitney, a beautiful blonde stoically trying to manage life after her brother’s death at the hands of the British Army, which in turn brings about the decline of her mother’s health. Often outspoken and rather free thinking for the time, Caroline frequently finds herself making impulsive decisions. One of her rash choices finds her taken under the custody of British Captain James Higley, a quiet, steady young officer who is currently dealing with a great deal of conflict in his professional life. Love and war always make for an interesting read. The plot will entice you to continue reading once you start this historical romance sprinkled with characters that readers of the series are sure to recognize from previous novels. Faith, love, and freedom once again provide a strong foundation for the story. Filled with historical detail and dedicated to liberty and the memory of the Revolution, So Bright a Hope spins a satisfying end to the Daughters of His Kingdom series. Sad as we may be to see the end of this great series, Ms. Perry is already teasing us with hints of her next series to come. I received this book free from Liberty Publishing and the author. I was not required to write a positive review. The above thoughts and opinions I have expressed are wholly my own.
