An epic and heartbreaking novel about a woman caught in the fight for American independence, perfect for readers who loved My Dear Hamilton and Flight of the Sparrow.
Addie stands with the restless crowd in Boston Harbor, watching her brother climb aboard the English tea ship. She isn’t supposed to be out, but this is no ordinary night. When she sees him start to toss the cargo into the water, she knows her world is about to change forever…
1773. As the fight for American independence begins, Addie Valencourt’s tight-knit family is torn apart. When the British lay siege to Boston, her father welcomes the English army into his home, while her brothers and childhood sweetheart Silas leave to join General Washington. Addie is hatching a plan to follow them when she meets Scottish Highlander John Traverne. The frowning, dark-haired soldier is unlike anyone she has ever known, but she must stay true to Silas and her promise to join him and the Revolutionary army.
Addie adjusts quickly to life in the army camp, comfortable with the rebels fighting for their freedom. But when Silas is captured by the British, she knows she must risk it all to search for him. But venturing into enemy territory brings her face to face with the Highlander once more. Now Addie must again ignore what her heart is telling her, to protect the secrets—and even the very lives—of the Patriots on the dangerous front line…
The first part of a haunting, emotional and heart-wrenching trilogy.
