Book Review: Purge on the Potomac by David Thomas Roberts

Purge on the Potomac by David Thomas Roberts

Available 30 August 2018

As most of our blog readers know, we don’t normally read fiction. It is very difficult to review fiction because you don’t want to give away any secrets that might spoil the book.

On the rare occasion that we do read fiction, it is difficult to find any fiction book in keeping with our Christian values. Too often we find books that are really cheesy romance novels, with a very little bit of plot mixed in between the raunchy sex scenes.

Purge on the Potomac (The Patriot Series) by David Thomas Roberts is different. It is a very exciting and, at times, funny book about the very real threats we all face since many of our elected officials, at all levels, think we serve at their pleasure rather than the other way around.

It does use the Lord’s name as a curse twice, once on page 192 and again on page 316 of the paperback edition we were given as an advanced media copy for review. This explains why our star rating is not all five stars. Our review policy states up front not to send us any books with the Lord’s name used in vain.

Other than that, this book is the most exciting and interesting fiction book David has ever read. It takes place here in the State of Texas. What is really interesting to us is that the author, David Thomas Roberts, has a scene take place on a ranch in Shiner, Texas. Mr Roberts may be aware that there is just such a ranch, owned by the Roberts family, that resembles his description in Shiner, Texas. We know the Roberts that purchased said property is David’s maternal grandpa, Leon Wallis Roberts. He is buried in the Shiner cemetery.

The author does an outstanding job of capturing the sentiment that is held by most Texans regarding the second amendment and interference in The Great State of Texas. It is not a question of IF Texas will secede, but when.

Purge on the Potomac is the kind of book you just can’t put down. It is very exciting right up to the last page where you have to sit back and say, “Wow”.

The Mayflower: The Families, the Voyage, and the Founding of America by Rebecca Fraser

We love history. We love to study genealogy. The Mayflower: The Families, the Voyage, and the Founding of America by Rebecca Fraser is chock full of both.

We learned so much about history that we never even knew existed from this book. Not only did we learn about early America, we also learned about England, the Netherlands, and a little about Scotland as well.

The Mayflower is very well-written and extremely well-researched. We give it all five stars. This is one of those history books you just don’t want to put down because, not only is it interesting history, it is very readable. We learned more at every turn of the page.
