Editorial Reviews

From the Author

This story came about because I read a snatch from a published romance where a woman set out to rescue an American being tortured by Mexican soldiers. So the setting in Texas was almost predetermined. Developing reasons why these two Texans would have anything to do with Mexico resulted in an espionage plot element. At first I meant for the female protagonist, Maeve Collinswood, to have her romance with the man she seeks to rescue, Zachary Duvall.Hamilton Jessup, the minor character who pretended to be her husband as a cover for her undercover spy activities suddenly became important as a part of the plot, however, and he grew into the "romantic lead," as well as a fully developed hero in the storyline instead. This story required a lot of research and insertion of fictional characters into real events. Locations had to be close enough together to allow for the types of travel possible in the time period and within the relatively narrow constraints of the story's timeline. It revolves around the Battle of Monterrey, and even touches on the whole history of Texas' struggle for autonomy from Mexico. The plot revolves to some extent around a disability that is more than it first appears. How such disabilites were handled in this time period and how it would affect life in this place were points which I had to try to portray accurately. Conquering pride is a necessary element for both the main characters and gives an opportunity to explore the subject of alcoholism. Espionage always seems to involve lying, and some of the consequences of carrying that "need to lie" too far are explored.

From the Inside Flap

The Goliad campaign, the battle of San Jacinto, and the Battle of Monterrey are actual historical events. Colonel James Fannin, General Ampudio and Santa Ana are historical persons. I do not know if there was an "angel of Goliad," a "highborn Spanish lady" who rescued some of the men sentenced to death at Goliad. All other characters are fictional. Accounts vary on how many men survived the capture and executions. Also fictional is the analysis of what went wrong at Goliad and any other interpretations or analysis of intelligence or historical events not clearly a part of the record of history. I do not know what did or did not go wrong with Fannin's command, and I do not know whether Ampudia had any specific plans for an "endgame scenario." I have taken a few historical events, persons and facts and made them a part of a fictional account. It is only a story, intended to do honor to the memory of the real brave men (and perhaps women) who served Texas and the United States.
