Fiction: Revolutionary by Alex Myers

Revolutionary book coverThe year was 1782, and Deborah Samson had escaped her indentured servitude. The only way to do this was to cut her hair, wrap her chest, and dress herself in the clothes and mannerisms of men. After doing this, she became a soldier in the Continental Army. Samson – newly known as Robert Shurtliff – excelled as a soldier. Revolutionary is Alex Myers’ historical fiction debut, recounting the life of Deborah Samson, a real woman (one of many) that secretly fought in the Revolutionary War. Colonial history is given a whole new shine when seen through the eyes of this remarkable woman. If you like your historical fiction gritty, detailed, and focusing on lesser-knowns, try Revolutionary.
