Secrets of Freemasonry, refugee Jacobites in Colonial America, the occult secrets behind the Revolution...Wow, given my predeliction for this sort of material, I was ready to love this book.

Then I started to read it.

With a plot that meanders (literally) all over the map, flat and poorly drawn characters, long stretches of vapid reportage of historical events, and a truly memorable lack of dramatic focus, Two Crowns for America proved remarkably disappinting. Did I mention the dull and turbid prose? A skipper.

As much as I liked this book, I'm not likely to read it again. Much like her other books, there is a sense of the mystical/magic about this book in her use of the Order of the Masons (often headliners in cult and conspiracy theories by the modern age in the formation of the USA and American Revolution). While I think they did serve a role in the formation of America in those early days, I don't think they were solely instrumental, nor that they planned the whole thing and manipulated the strings behind the scenes to evidence the eventual outcome. Good book; good writing. But not a real keeper. ( )

Masons with mystical powers drive the American Revolution, oh my! Found it rather dull. Lots and lots of descriptions of mystical symbols and rituals, and lots of troop movements.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553572873, Paperback)

It's 1775, and in Europe, an unseen Master peers into a darkened mirror to see the man whose destiny is to wear the victor's crown. Across the sea, in a land named for a virgin queen, Gen. George Washington is thrown from his horse and has a dream that will haunt him for the rest of his life. Soon, a reluctant Washington will be elected Commander-in-Chief of the new Continental Army and considered for the position of king of America--and his rise will set in motion a chain of events that lead directly to rebellion. But little do the colonists and Founding Fathers realize that they are part of a greater plan, being used as pawns in another person's game of power and conquest.
