Susan Leigh Furlong
His new country needed him. He needed her more.
Revolutionary War soldier, Gavin Cullane, has desperate choices to make. He vows never to give up the fight for American freedom, but his role as colonial liaison between the Americans and the British brands him a seeming traitor to his own country. When he discovers the woman he loves is part of George Washington’s secret spy chain, his only choice is to expose his own lies so she can escape.
Tansy Carter risks her life to send messages to George Washington from the captured city of
New York. When she is discovered, she must flee the city, and trusting her life to the traitor,
Cullane, is the desperate chance she must take.
Will their freedom come at the cost of their love?

Between the Pages – Still Moments Magazine Rating 5 Stars.
This historical romance was a compelling read. The author blended actual events of history with fictional
aspects, developing a seamless plot. Opening the story with a band – literally during America’s
Revolutionary War, the pages combine action, courage, and emotion. These elements propel the story
further in the book without pausing. The characters shine, from the leads of Gavin and Tansy to Tansy’s
family and other cast members the author introduces along the way. The scenes with the children were
enjoyable as was the character, Brian. There were many points of view in this story and some changes
happened without a break, but it didn’t deter the read. The plan the characters build to survive comes
with many twists, and they take the reader on a visual journey and the kindness of humanity. If you’re a
fan of historicals, I recommend grabbing a copy of this book.

Prior to its release date, I was given a chance to read Desperate Hope, Susan Leigh Furlong's latest
book. This is the rousing story of a family of Continental spies during the Revolutionary War in occupied
New York. Desperate Hope is well-researched, with likable characters and an intriguing plot. I am a fan
of historical fiction and Susan is one of the best in this genre. You will be swept up in the time period and
dangers her characters face and the bravery and loyalty they exhibit in the telling of their story.
