Summary

The author of two Christy Award finalists, Siri Mitchell has earned widespread recognition for skillfully blending spirituality and rich storytelling.

Set in Revolution-era America, The Messenger features Hannah Sunderland, a young woman who is devastated when her brother is jailed for joining the Colonial cause. Spy Jeremiah Jones sees in Hannah a way to access the prison to obtain valuable information, but Hannah’s Quaker beliefs stand in the way. Nevertheless, Hannah and Jeremiah develop a mutual fondness, even as they become caught in history’s tumultuous churn.

The Messenger Offers the Best Message

Hannah and Jeremiah share an amazing plot, and a love story on a vertical and horizontal plane. Siri Mitchell writes strong characters with credible issues, framed in a faith strong enough to question organized religion and political chaos. Set in 1770s when fighting gives birth to freedom, Hannah learns to speak up for her beliefs and Jeremiah learns to listen. This is a PG13 rated book only because of the nature of life in times of war. A beautiful romance for adults and I recommend it for the YA audience studying Revolutionary America too. Excellent read and even better listen. Scott Sowers and Morgan Hallett are the perfect narrators for this book.

Another Fabulous Book by Siri

This is the second book I've listened to by this author and thought it as fabulous as the first book. Great characters with clean values without coming off preachy. Off to ordering another book by Siri :)

quality historical fiction

What does Scott Sowers and Morgan Hallett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

MH is a great narrator - I love any book she narrates. SS is ok, not my favorite though.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes

Any additional comments?

read all of Siri Mitchell's books - they're great!

Good but abrupt ending

The narrators do well. Sometimes Morgan (the female voice) hesitates between each sentence. It was a very good story. I liked it. I wonder if there is a sequel. Not enough unfinished story for a whole sequel but it just ended too abruptly. Another chapter would have been nice.
