Review: Sons of Liberty

User Review  - 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

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
