Hi!

If you love historical fiction from late 1700' s to early 1800's, I recommend "The Wedding Gift" by Thomas H. Raddall. This is a collection of amusing, romantic and poignant short stories about the adventures of American colonial families who must leave America after the Revolutionary War and re-settle in Novia Scotia. I've kept this book for about 10 years and have read and re-read it many times! It was recommended to me from a historian in Scotland. Very interesting perspective about the aftermath of Revolutionary War and what happened to those who fought for King George III.

Thanks!

Kristie
