Head on over to my fellow historical fiction author Jocelyn Green’s blog and check out my new interview celebrating the release of Valley of the Shadow! We’re doing a drawing for a free print or ebook copy of Valley of the Shadow—or one of the previous books if you need to catch up with the series. You have until Tuesday, September 15, to enter.
Here’s her lovely endorsement for the American Patriot Series: “The American Patriot books are the most complete, complex, and textured retelling of the Revolutionary War I’ve found in historical fiction. Hochstetler is not only a masterful storyteller, but a genuine historian. These are timeless classics, destined to be read—and relished—more than once.”
The ebook editions of all the volumes of the series are on sale for only $1.99 through the month of September. So now’s the time to load up your ereader with the whole series or any of the books you haven’t read yet!
The American Patriot Series is the only truly comprehensive fictional series on the American Revolution. Painstakingly researched using a wide range of primary resources as well as the latest popular and scholarly histories of the American colonial and Revolutionary periods, it contains a highly engaging and accurate account of the founding of the United States.
While the series is written for adult readers, it is also appropriate for students from middle school through college age. The books of the American Patriot Series will engage students and bring history alive in a way that non-fiction texts cannot.
At the time of the Revolution the American colonies were already a melting pot of racial, ethnic, and religious groups. The American Patriot Series accurately depicts this diversity by portraying the involvement of women, African Americans, Native Americans, and other groups in the struggle for independence.
The American Revolution and the establishment of the United States are based solidly in the Christian faith of our founding generation, as innumerable primary resources document. It is therefore appropriate for the American Patriot Series to reflect those crucial aspects of our nation's founding by accurately depicting the beliefs and values of those who sacrificed their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to bring this nation to birth.
