This is Miller's first novel. I'm giving it 5 stars because of the accuracy of the book. While a novel, it still reads in places like a history book. I didn't mind that, but others might.

Setting is one week in March, 1783 known as the Newburgh Conspiracy. Although it is an entire week of Washington's life, Miller sheds light on other events of the Revolutionary War. While Washington wanted praise and loyalty from men, he did not want to be king. Some were chanting exchanging one George (king of England) for another George, but luckily Washington did not want that.

This novel which is well documented takes the reader inside the War. It is written in the first person, Josiah, who in reality is a composite of 32 of Washington's closest aids. ( )
