Wend Eckert is now an established gunsmith in Winchester, VA, and the recipient of a contract from the colonial government to refurbish muskets, a contract that can only be described a golden handcuffs. As war develops between the government of Virginia and tribes in the Ohio Country, Eckert is forced into military service in order to protect his livelihood. In the meantime, long hidden fault lines develop in a marriage that he largely takes for granted. Eckert is caught up in the ferment of a brewing revolution, he is manipulated by his bete noire, Richard Grenough into choosing between his livelihood and his honor, and his wife finds her virtue and loyalty tested as she is wooed by a handsome stranger and by Eckert bringing home a totally unexpected and unwelcome family addition.
Shade combines solid storytelling with an impressive knowledge of the time period to bring the reader not only an appreciation for the era but a damned good tale in the bargain.
