Sons of Liberty
A revolution is a complicated thing, Rock Kindle knows -- especially when it happens in your own family. Rock wants to be loyal to his father, whose "life lessons" are often harsh, sometimes cruel. And he tries to be loyal to his mother, who retreats from the world more and more every day, whose weakness leaves Rock torn between anger and pity for her. So he's suspicious of his older brother, Cliff's, dark hints at escaping, rebelling against their father's tyranny. Why does Cliff need to start a revolution? Why can't they all just stay together as family?
But when their friend, Liza, escapes from her own troubled situation, and as tensions escalate at home, Rock finds himself forced to take sides. He must sort out for himself whether he is a patriot -- or a traitor.
With unforgettable, sharply drawn characters and a taut, dramatic narrative, Adele Griffin's third novel draws us into the complexity of family relationships, offering no easy answers -- only hope.

Review: Sons of LibertyUser Review - Elizabeth - Goodreads
This was an odd book. The characters were either completely original or just strange, because they kept doing things I couldn't expect. The writing was good but the plot didn't resolve, IMO. I kept thinking there would be more about Liza, but there wasn't. Strange, strange, strange. Read full review
Review: Sons of LibertyUser Review - Erika - Goodreads
I didn't enjoy this story. I wanted so desperately to care about these brothers trying to escape the abuse around them, but all I could focus on was how much it felt like the story just rambled from one character to the other. Too bad. Read full review
