Kenneth Roberts is an old master of the historical novel. He writes adventure and romance in a way both men and women can enjoy. In "Oliver Wiswell" Roberts tackles the loyalist side of the American Revolution, those loyal to the king and Great Britain and traitors to the cause. And though it might be a little hard to sympathize with those who chose the "wrong" side of history, Roberts tells a convincing story of the difficulties faced by colonists who were against the revolution.
