    One thought on “The Secret Road”

    1. If you're a fan of Revolutionary War fiction, then this is must-read. Written in 1952, it's a good story about Washington's spy network. The book is populated with a lot of historical figures and a realistic hero. For me, this one came across as incredibly authentic -- true to the time, the story and the characters. The story does drag at times, but even the slow spots come across as necessary caution and natural pauses in a state of war.

    2. As usual for a Bruce Lancaster novel, the book provides a good mix of action, suspense, and authenticity. I've always found it odd that some people in this country are put off by the thought of "real" espionage -- when, in fact, a supposed "straight arrow" like George Washington considered it vital to fighting the Revolution. Of course, Lancaster is perhaps too "polly-anna" for many modern readers because he doesn't really get down in the dirt the way more hard-edged authors do.

    3. Loved this book. Told from the guy's point of view. No mushy stuff, no sex, and minimal violence and bad language if any(it is a war story).
