This book was very well-written. It's obvious that Phoebe did a lot of research on the time period, and it's a true testament to her talent that she was still able to incorporate her fictional characters into America's history.
The plot took several turns that just weren't my cup of tea. Again, everything about the book seemed appropriate for the time period, including the "not so sunshine & roses" parts of the story.
I would absolutely read another book by Phoebe. While Savage Destiny didn't quite turn out the way I thought, I still could not put it down until I knew how it ended!
