Must Thee Fight
Lynmar Brock (Booksurge Publishing, 292 pages)
A self-professed “conscientious participant” with an extensive background of military service, Malvern’s Lynmar Brock takes on the plight of a peace-loving Quaker compelled to fight in the American Revolution with surprising empathy and eloquence. Though the overarching conflict between duty and faith is a compelling theme, the true beauty of Must Thee Fight is in the period details, which Brock captures with loving authenticity.
