USA TODAY bestselling author Colleen Coble explores the mystery and the romance of the Revolutionary War.
A young lighthouse keeper must navigate the dangerous waters of revolution and one man’s obsession with her to find safe harbor with the sea captain she loves.
Hannah Thomas believes she’s escaped Galen Wright’s evil intentions by marrying an older lighthouse keeper. Seemingly safe in faraway Massachusetts, her world is upended when John is killed in one of the first battles of the Revolutionary War. Hannah is allowed to continue the difficult task of tending the twin lighthouses in John’s place, though she faces daily disapproval from John’s family. She thinks her loneliness will subside when her younger sister arrives, but she finds Lydia’s obsession with Galen only escalates the dangerous tides swirling around her.
A stormy night brings a shipwrecked sea captain to Hannah’s door, and though he is a Tory, her heart is as traitorous as the dark-eyed captain. Even though she discovers Birch Meredith isn’t the enemy he seemed at first, Hannah isn’t sure their love will ever see the light of freedom.
The Freedom’s light by Colleen Cobble is a slow historical romantic fiction. This story takes you right to the heart of American Revolution and the happenings . It give you vivid description of what is happening to both side of war between British and American ( loyalist) .
¤ The main character is Hannah who supports American and her sister Lydia who don’t because she like Gallen .

Things changes drastically after this when a ship crashed near lighthouse and a soldier named Birch had to live in with her because of his injured leg whom she nursed a lovely triangle develops here also .
¤ Gallen also came back . Lydia did something which makes Hannah sad and devastated .
The last part of this story is very gripping and sad which captured my imagination in a way that I could not even imagined . This all thing happening simultaneously with American revolution . This depicted whole condition of chistaninty , strict condition of women and there role in this revolution.
I love the characters and the book is very well written as I have come to expect . The plot is excellent and there is plenty of detail and it had gripped me from the first page .
This is really moving story and one that make you think it definitely stays with you after you have read it .
