For readers who want to be transported to another time, this book delivers on its promise.
Angel's Flight is the story of Angelica, a Dutch heiress, and Jack, the man who vows to bring her home to safety. Against the gritty, realistic backdrop of the Revolutionary War, their love grows even though she's a patriot and he's a British officer. The ending has a nice twist. A well written, entertaining historical romance that totally immerses you in the times.
