Three-Time Christy Finalist Pens Another Winning Historical Romance!
… this richly detailed, exciting story moves quickly through the action, and each chapter leaves you wanting to read another. A well-written, enthralling historical novel, The Messenger will not disappoint. –– Portland Book Review
When I finished this novel I found myself wondering how I could have been reading Christian historical fiction for two years and not yet discovered Siri Mitchell. The Messenger is an example of all that is good about this genre, and makes me proud to say that I endorse Christian novels. Believable characters, realistic spiritual journeys, heavily researched historical detail and a gentle and understated romance make The Messenger a novel I highly recommend to historical fiction fans. — Christian Manifesto
The alternating first-person narrative brings the emotions of the duo to the forefront, and the intrigues of the Colonials versus the Redcoats are well plotted as we learn of Jeremiah’s own story: he is maimed during one of the many battles. In an example of opposites attract, it seems that not everyone or everything will be as it appears. Hannah struggles with the pacifist ideals of her faith, and Jeremiah is not as rough as his appearance. With a convincing supporting cast, this is a compelling Christian historical set during a very important time for America. — Historical Novel Society
