This is an excellent book if you are not expecting James Mitchner or are a fan of the NY/NE Revolutionary War fad. You probably are better off with Drums Along the Mohawk and ditching the rest of Edmonds. Roberts spends alot of time on a positive portrayal of Indians and the very real prejudices they faced. It is well written, but predictable. The portrayals of Benedict Arnold and Aaron Burr are likely very real.
I am reading the second book in this series. It is longer with two different main charachters, but all of the major charachters from Arundel appear in this book.
