Raid On Cochecho: Book Three of The Puritan Chronicles by Peni Jo Renner is a historical fiction novel based on true events that happened during the early colonial history of New Hampshire in New England. The story is based on the infamous siege of Cochecho, New Hampshire, during which a large number of people died during a Native American ambush. Raid On Cochecho: Book Three of The Puritan Chronicles begins with an introduction to the chief characters, Grace Hampton, a young girl, and Menane, a young Pennacook boy, and the unlikely friendship that forms between them. Several years later, when times have changed and the threat of danger and revenge is around the corner, this story is a testament to their friendship and love that can withstand artificial barriers that humans create among themselves.

Raid On Cochecho: Book Three of The Puritan Chronicles by Peni Jo Renner is an engaging read and the story, based on true historical events, brings the early colonial period in American history to life. I loved how the characters are portrayed and the landscape and setting certainly lend an authentic feel to the story telling. The author has a personal connection to the events in the story and this, combined with the accurate portrayal of New Hampshire history, makes it an exciting read. The story is fast-paced and in the end simply reminds us that we are all essentially much more similar to one another than different, an especially compelling message in today’s times. A good read for historical fiction fans!
