Read A Hope Divided (The Loyal League #2) Online Free - The Civil War has turned neighbor against neighbor--but for one scientist spy and her philosopher soldier, war could bind them together . . .
For three years of the War Between the States, Marlie Lynch has helped the cause in peace: with coded letters about anti-Rebel uprisings in her Carolina woods, tisanes and poultices for Union prisoners, and silent aid to fleeing slave and Freeman alike. Her formerly enslaved mother's traditions and the name of a white father she never knew have protected her--until the vicious Confederate Home Guard claims Marlie's home for their new base of operations in the guerilla war against Southern resistors of the Rebel cause.
Unbeknowst to those under her roof, escaped prisoner Ewan McCall is sheltering in her laboratory. Seemingly a quiet philosopher, Ewan has his own history with the cruel captain of the Home Guard, and a thoughtful but unbending strength Marlie finds irresistible.
When the revelation of a stunning family secret places Marlie's freedom on the line, she and Ewan have to run for their lives into the hostile Carolina night. Following the path of the Underground Railroad, they find themselves caught up in a vicious battle that could dash their hopes of love--and freedom--before they ever cross state lines.

I really like how this woman writes! :)
The heroine here was weaker and more protected than the one in the previous book, but I appreciated how he grown up, even if I, and I suppose nobody else, didn't like the reasons that forced her to!
She is also a mixed race free woman, but where the previous...

I generally don't rate books I haven't read yet, but this book isn't gonna sit here with a 1-star rating because of a troll, so FIVE STARS. (Also, if you have not read the first book in this series, An Extraordinary Union, DO SO IMMEDIATELY, IT IS WONDERFUL.)
I have now officially read this...

Been sitting on my review on this for awhile.
This installment of the series is quite a bit different from the first book. Our intrepid heroes in this one are also spies for the North, but unlike Elle and Malcolm from the first book, Marlies and Ewan's spying isn't as overt.
Marlie is a free woman...

Even better than the first book. I just wished for a less rushed ending, or a longer snippet of the hero and the heroine recuperating/readjusting after what happened throughout the book. That said, can't recommend it enough.

By chance they meet and a friendship is born that in time they realize is just the beginning of something so much more and gives the strength to fight t...

I love this author's voice. Her books always pull me in from the first word and don't let me go until the very last. That's not entirely true as hours even days later I'm still thinking about the characters and the world they inhabit.
A Hope Divided is no different, it pulled me in...

****I received this book free in exchange for an honest review****
Not as good as the first book, but to be fair - the first book was a tough act to follow. Still - it was a good read. This book focuses on minor characters from the first book. While I did read this in two sittings as it was fast p...
