Many people recognize the name of General Henry Knox. He was the self-taught Artillery General under General George Washington during the Revolutionary War. He was brave and ingenious. Many people, however, may not be aware of the beautiful love and friendship he had with his wife, Lucy Flucker Knox.
Lucy came from a staunchly Loyalist family. Her love for Henry forced her to give up her ties with her family. Together, they faced the hardships of the Revolutionary War along with the heartbreak of the loss of most of their children.
Pamela Murrow’s book, “Unending Passions: The Knox Letters” brings the story of these two amazing people to life. Never before have I read a book of such love, devotion, and sacrifice from two people for each other and for the country and ideals they loved. I highly recommend this book both to those who are interested in the Revolutionary War and those who love incredible romance stories.
