Prelude to Glory, Vol. 5: A Cold, Bleak Hill is Kindle My favorite so far in the series. I really appreciated that the pace was faster and several story lines came to a conclusion. The writing felt more personable. My one complaint is that the romance was a little disappointing. After all the build up for a romance between Eli and Mary, I had a hard time believing it came and went with virtually no dialogue. . In the Summer of 1777 with an army still half the size of the British forces, General Washington could not survive a head on battle but could only pick a favorable time and place After two disappointing defeats and a near disastrous winter at Valley Forge, the American army gets help from two lively characters Baron Friedrich von Steuben and the Marquis de Lafayette.. A viral Book Prelude to Glory, Vol. 5: A Cold, Bleak Hill A Cold Bleak Hill is a historical fiction book by Ron Carter about the revolutionary war. General Washington's army has arrived at Valley Forge after several defeats at the battles of Germantown and Brandywine Creek, and the Paoli Massacre. The Continental army is starting to break down. Food and provisions are rare, and what food is available is moldy and infested. The bitter cold is constantly chipping away at the soldiers, and the overall morale of the camp is bad. This book was interesting, but it could be very slow at times due to a lack of action. The depiction of Valley Forge was cool, but nothing ever happened that made it suspenseful. I liked the way the author portrayed General Washington. He was very real, and he was actually an important character. I did like it because it made me a little bit more thankful for what the army did in the war, and it was very sad. I liked the theme of freedom is always worth fighting for, no matter the circumstances.

  • It was hard to read about the Continental Army suffering like the did in their 2nd winter I couldn t believe the people of the surrounding area would hide much needed food and clothing from the army and instead sell to the British Even patriots did so in order to make a living instead of supporting their soldiers Finally in the end they were blessed with the fish in the river and their spirits lifted so much that the could fight a battle and win it.


  • I loved reading this whole series because it allowed me to learn much about our countries beginnings than I ever learned in school but I enjoyed it this time A fictional family and their friends make the journey through the revolutionary war and on into the establishment of the United States government and the rough economic times that followed the war Book 9 jumps ahead in time to the war of 1812.


  • This is a 9 book historical fiction series about the Revolutionary War It is written very well His writing style is very similar to Gerald Lund s writing style It gave me even greater respect for our Founding Fathers and all the brave men and women that helped to give us the freedoms we enjoy today Don t forget to read the footnotes for interesting information.


  • I actually liked this book than most of the others Not sure why As in all the others, I don t really like the way they author has chosen to deal with the timeline of events I think I m finally really liking the characters and their stories, and maybe that s why I m enjoying it Too bad it s taken halfway through the series to get to this point.


  • Nothing can prepare you for the tragedy of Valley Forge Our country was built from the sacrifice of the men who served during that fateful winter You cannot read this book and come away unmoved or ungrateful.


  • Valley Forge oh my goodness After reading this book I told my husband that it was obvious that God wanted the Revolution to happen, because it certainly couldn t have been won without His influence Such humbling circumstances those soldiers were in.


  • I read this book with my dad and we both loved it and we also are enjoying the series I started this book after visiting Valley Forge so I had a better understanding of Valley Forge Read the book and the series.


  • I have enjoyed learning details about the revolutionary war I had not known The novel paints a human picture of many historical figures that makes them real than just a name in history I have enjoyed the entire series and look forward to reading the next volume.


  • A fun series with a great mix of well researhed history of the US Revolutionary War with footnotes and fictional personal items to bring the story to life The fictional characters are well placed to bring the story out.











  • I loved reading this series I learned a lot about the revolutionary war I especially loved the little captions at the end of the chapter telling a little about what happened historically.
