American Phoenix Reviewed

Upon first beginning Jane Hampton Cook's American Phoenix I thought I might be reading about a treacherous journey through the European countryside. What I found, however, was a story of honor, fortitude, valiance, bravery, and highly notable patriotism.

If you are not familiar with the exploits of the United States of America's sixth President, this book would be a wonderful way to avail yourself of that knowledge.

A word to the wise and would-be reader though. American Phoenix is no light undertaking. The main girth of the book stands in a well over four hundered pages and there is some very heady content throughout.

All that having been said, this is an excellent read. Though it may take you a couple of weeks to pour over the numerous pages within.

I received a copy of American Phoenix by Jane Hampton Cook throught Thomas Nelson's BookSneeze program. The copy was given me in exchange for my honest review of the work.
