The soldier, Edwin, has run from a domineering father in England and a family where he feels like he’ll never measure up to their demanding standards. Edwin doesn’t tell Agnes he’s the son of a Duke.
Agnes passes Edwin off as her cousin as her own mother who died when Agnes was younger had come from England. As Edwin heals, harrowing events happen as the war rages. Edwin, Agnes and her entire family find themselves in danger, he as a harbored soldier and she as a traitor. When Agnes’ precocious sister, Margaret, disappears along with the family pet pig, Jonas, Agnes vows to search for her. Edwin takes her up river to Sandy Hook and sees this as his chance to get back to his military services or even go home to the life he ran from.
Has hoped been dashed for the newly kindled love they both realize they’ve developed while their world is unsettled by war and oppression?
Penelope Marzec presents and exciting read and a well-painted look back into our history. There are definite page turning sections as well as an emotionally wrenching look at the fear and confusion that must have been felt during this tumultuous time.
Edwin is not just a soldier. He is also the runaway son of the Duke of Dalfour. He was on a mission to deliver a message when he was shot by the enemy. He has no idea how he came to be in the barn or where his horse has gone. He goes along with Agnes's lie to buy time to heal and perhaps spy on the colonists.
As they encounter challenges wrought by the war, they both start to fall in love. the only problem is Edwin will leave when he is well enough and Agnes will once again be alone. When Loyalists capture Agnes's sister, Edwin vows to bring her back by returning to the British encampment. He hopes they won't hang him as a deserter.
Agnes struggles with her feelings for the this man and his own personal struggle from independence from an overbearing father. Will war tear his budding relationship with Agnes apart or draw them together? Could Edwin give up a title and a life of relatives ease to take up the Patriot's cause and a life of struggle and hardship as a price for independence? Could sworn enemies become more?
This tightly woven novel is written with plenty of conflict and characters who surprised me. The hardships faced as the United States America first took its stand for independence was fraught with hardship and trial and yet love as well. Penelope does a wonderful job of drawing the reader into the story, into history, so we can experience what that struggle might have been like. It's not all heavy war either, there's some fun stuff thrown in as well that will make you smile.
