Quills and Promies by Amber Miller

Quills and Promises by Amber Miller is such a lovely book. It is easy to fall in love with the main character, Elanna, who befriends a major, Madison Scott, in the war. The two correspond by mail for years as the war rages on.

Elanna is a young girl who is very curious about the French and Indian War and does everything she can to find out the current happenings. Her curiousness eventually leads her to a writer at the local newspaper that questions the integrity of Major Scott. Elanna must decide who to trust, Major Scott who she has only met twice but has corresponded with for years, or the newspaper writer, who has first hand knowledge of the war.

The book is a quick read and very clean. No bad language, no sexual situations - just a nice romance. All of the characters are very easy to love and I really wanted to know what would happen next. I really liked Elanna. She is very independent, always thinks before she acts, prays for guidance in her life, and accepts the consequences of her actions. She is the kind of girl I hope my daughter grows up to be.


  1. Thank you for the review, Courtney. My first book began as a favorite among my readers, but when book 2 was released, it quickly trumped book 1's success. :)

    Your remark about your daughter is a common one for many women who have read these books. It's an honor and quite flattering to know one of my characters might inspire young girls to grow up the same way.

    Be blessed!
