The Hostage

Far from home, she faced
the oncoming war
between England and France—
and within herself,
the stirring of temptation and
the longing to be free.

TThe Hostage is set at the beginning of the French and Indian War. What a relief it was when, finally, His Majesty declared war – a war that would settle the problem of France laying claim to the same lands as the American settlers in North America.

Most colonists considered themselves Englishmen (and women), obedient to the same King and same laws as the British in England itself. There were only a few exceptions at that point, but Samuel Adams was one of them. He had seen Parliament summon up an old law that saddled his father with crushing debt he could not pay. With that kind of power, Adams believed there was no limit to what Parliament could do, no matter who got hurt.

Once the war was over, that power became evident to everyone.

Meanwhile, before the war begins, a young woman from Boston, sailing to London, finds herself captive at the French fortress Louisbourg. She is held hostage, to be used in trade for a French captive of the English. She will be taken to a British fort by a woodsman of mixed ancestry, a man determined to liberate Acadia—Nova Scotia—from Britain. A man with nothing but distain for England and for the hostage, yet from this inauspicious start arose passion.

Putting aside all obstacles, they devise a plan that will give them a future, and together they wait for the right time to launch it. The scheme will work—they know it will work – If war does not destroy it—or them.


The Pretender

She hid behind the
pretense of nobility, but she
could not hide from the
man she loved.

…And so it begins. As their love grows, we learn more about this man and his allegiance to Samuel Adams, his work with the Sons of Liberty, and we watch as the rebels gradually undermine the authority of Parliament—and that of the King.

The Traitors

The British believe
these followers of Sam Adams
are disloyal. But the rebels know that their rights
are in danger—both from the king
and from a source known only to themselves . . .

A group of rich Tories schemes to create an American aristocracy. If successful, they will be able control revenues, legislature and the judiciary of the colony. They will be wealthy and powerful beyond their wildest dreams, and other wealthy men in the other colonies will follow their example.

But there are the Sons of Liberty—and the Daughters of Liberty—who follow the lead of Samuel Adams. They risk everything they have to secure separation from England, and they do not hesitate to sabotage the new Aristocratic Order when they learn of its possibility. In so doing, they changed the course of American history.
