My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I was pleasantly surprised by Tom Chaffin’s new book “Revolutionary Brothers“.
The novel gives a short but very detailed dual biography of Thomas Jefferson and the Marquis de LaFayette. As a good American, I know many facts and details of Mr. Jefferson’s life, however, this book gave me a better insight into his life before and after making a huge impact on American History.
The story of the Marquis de LaFayette’s life was very fascinating, and his rise and fall of power have been very intriguing. He has left tremendous footsteps in American history, and unfortunately is not fully recognized by it.
An author has written a history that reads like a novel, which makes it so easy to read. He characterized the friendship of two extraordinary people in a remarkable manner. Thanks to him, I learned so much more about American History. Thank you NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for a free and advanced copy of the novel.
