Description

The Declaration of Independence is the usual name of a statement adopted by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, which announced that the thirteen American colonies, then at war with Great Britain, regarded themselves as 13 newly independent sovereign states, and no longer a part of the British Empire. Instead they formed a new nation—the United States of America. John Adams was a leader in pushing for independence, which was unanimously approved on July 2. A committee had already drafted the formal declaration, to be ready when Congress voted on independence. The term "Declaration of Independence" is not used in the document itself.

    I just read this novel and I can not believe how much I enjoyed it. The thrilling twists made for a wild emotional ride packed to the brim with romance, death, and so much more. The Action packed novel teaches us our true moral values in a moving way. I love the metaphorical value as well. When you realize that the United States relationship with, in this case, Britain is truly a metaphor for a bad relationship on the verge of an abusive one the separation is necessary but Britany keeps coming back. Truly a beautiful read. I would for sure read a second time and recommend.

    Every American should read this at least once a year. The Fourth of July would be a good day to read. To many take the freedoms they fought for for granted. We need to remain grateful for this great country and fortunate to be citizens of it.
