Summary
  • Boston has been liberated from the British Army, but the long and hard and bloody war had only begun. Every step toward independence led them into deeper danger. The fiery crucible of war had already taught the Bradford family that serving God and serving one's country often calls for great sacrifice. In the pursuit of the inalienable rights of the Sons of Liberty, the severing of strong ties with England had swept them into fields of battle and torn family loyalties asunder. The defeat of the British at Bunker Hill and their evacuation from Boston was only the beginning of the struggle for a free America. As General George Washington makes a desperate attempt to forge an army that can stop the British from taking New York and defeating the Continental Army, Daniel Bradford fights to save his son Matthew from his old enemy Sir Leo Rochester. But the villain stoops so low as to hire Abigail Howland of the Winslow family to lure Matthew into his evil schemes. Meanwhile, Clive Gordon, son of Colonel Leslie Gordon of the British army, falls in love with Katherine Yancy, a daring young woman whose father and uncle are patriot prisoners. When Clive crosses enemy lines to attempt their rescue, will he be shot as a spy? - Publisher
