In this Amber Lynn Perry's debut novel we are taken back in time to when our countrymen were yearning for the freedom they thought they were going to achieve when they left England far behind. The year is 1773 and things in Massachusetts are heating up; there is unrest and murmuring among the Colonists. There are even those who would dare to speak against the Crown; brave men who call themselves the Sons of Liberty.
Eliza Campbell didn't realize how much life was going to change for her and her sister Kitty with her father Robert's deathbed confession of his secret life. Wasn't it enough that he was going to die? Why does she now have to carry the burden of knowing her beloved father was a spy for the Sons of Liberty? Maybe when her handsome beau, British Officer Samuel Martin, comes to visit he can help her figure out what to do.
Thomas Watson is tired of being blackmailed and his family threatened by British Officer Samuel Martin. He is hoping soon to be done with all this spying on the people he has come to respect as true patriots; the Sons of Liberty. Will this last piece of information be enough to send them on a chase in the wrong direction? Almost too late he realizes what the soldiers' real intent is and he rushes to rescue Eliza and Kitty Campbell. Arriving only minutes before the soldiers, Thomas is able to convince the girls they have to flee for their lives.
When Officer Samuel Martin realizes Eliza and Kitty are missing, he searches frantically to find them. He is determined to have Eliza for his wife. When they meet again will she find out what kind of man Samuel really is before it's too late? Or will Thomas win Eliza's heart before Samuel finds them?
Amber Perry has written a truly amazing story; one filled with exciting tidbits of American history. I was drawn in from the very beginning and things got more exciting from there! I immediately fell in love with Thomas and Eliza. I also enjoyed the friendship between Nathaniel, Thomas' friend and Kitty. I am very eager to see what comes next from the pen of this talented writer, perhaps a story featuring those two!! Thank you Amber for an extremely enjoyable read!
