Brigadier General Jonathan Carleton rejoins General George Washington’s army to find the patriot cause on the verge of extinction. In a daring gamble the American force crosses the Delaware on Christmas night 1776, to defeat outposts at Trenton and Princeton before vanishing into the mountain bastions around Morristown. Meanwhile, Elizabeth Howard is drawn ever deeper into the intrigues that swirl around British General William Howe as she continues to gather intelligence for the rebels. As decisive battles at Brandywine and Saratoga loom, both Elizabeth and Carleton face a crucible of war that tests their mettle, faith, and love to the very limits—and beyond.
Wartime is no picnic in the parks, nor is it a time to let down ones guard, a lesson both Carleton and Elizabeth must learn...again. Will their love survive the conflict? Will they? This reviewer won't tell. Now on to the next book!
