Reviews - What do customers think about Among the King's Soldiers (The Spirit of Appalachia Series #3) (Book 3)?
Excellent Book Sep 26, 2006
This is the best book of the series, however, the reader should read the previous two books to fully understand all the details of this book. The struggles of each of the main characters is realistic and the tale is full of intrique and unexpected turns. Great book which I would highly recommend.

Seth Donavan struggles with the death of his younger brother, Isaac, who was killed during the Battle at Moore's Creek Bridge. After the battle he spends his time fighting small battles with a small band of loyalists. Soon he's employed by Edward Denton to find out where William Martin is hiding weapons he sends to the rebels. But when he's with the Martins he becomes friends with them and his job becomes harder day after day. After an accident William Martin has a heart attack and soon after dies. After the death of William the family travels to Williamsburg to go visit Will Martin's sister Elizabeth.
Jacob Spencer escorts his stepsister, Sarah MacNeal, and her friend, Amanda Taylor, over the mountains to Williamsburg. Part of the reason for the trip is to hopefully help Sarah recover from losing of a close friend, Philip Baxter. While in Williamsburg they stay with Jacob's grandparents, James and Esther Spencer. Jacob soon meets up with Annabelle Denton, an old flame from the past. When Jacob sees Annabelle the feelings that he used to have for her are stirred once again.
In Williamsburg, Sarah meets her uncle Will Martin again and learns of her grandfather's death. Sarah meets Seth, her aunt, Rehekah, her cousins, David and Eve, her grandmother, Anne Martin, and Rebekah's grandmother, Martha. All the Martins, Seth, and Martha stay with James and Esther too. Sarah, Jacob, and Amanda are invited to a dinner party at the Denton's home and Seth goes along and that's when Seth realizes that Annabelle's father is Edward Denton his employer. Annabelle does something a few days after the dining party that gets Amanda mad at Jacob for a while. At his birthday party Jacob picks between Amanda and Annabelle. After the party they find out more about Seth than they ever wanted to know.
Will Martin and his family along with Seth move to Watauga when Jacob, Sarah, and Amanda go home. Sarah struggles with her feelings for two men and to let her heart love. Seth struggles with his feelings for Sarah and the God whom he's hated since letting his brother die.
What will happen to the MacNeals', Spencers', and Seth during the Battle of King's Men against Tories and Indians?
I suggest any of The Spirit of Appalachia books. They're a wonderful mix of love, history, suspense, and Christianity. Gilbert Morris and Aaron McCarver make a wonderful writing team and can spin plots wonderfully.
FANTASTIC! I'VE READ IT AGAIN AND AGAIN! Apr 17, 2000
Gilbert Morris just keeps them coming. Each one contains wonderful plots and out of this world characters. Among the King's Soldiers has an interesting title that has two meanings that you don't understand until you have read the book. The plot is intriguing and suspensful and will keep you reading until you are finished. I can't wait for the next one to come out!
