In 1775, Hayward Morgan, a young gentleman destined to inherit his father's estate in Derbyshire, England, captures the heart of the local vicar's daughter, Eliza Bloome. Her dark beauty and spirited ways are not enough to win him, due to her station in life. Circumstances throw Eliza in Hayward's path, and they flee to America to escape the family conflicts. But as war looms, it's a temporary reprieve. Hayward joins the revolutionary forces and what follows is a struggle for survival, a test of faith, and the quest to find lasting love in an unforgiving wilderness.
About The Author
As you turn the pages of this ever changing read, you will want to know that this is the first of three books. When I turned the last page of this book, I was left with a cliff hanger.
These are the people who settled this country, their strength and perserverance and faults, are the beginnings of the settlement of this land. Some of the characters show a great faith in God, but we are all sinners.
Once you read this one, you will have to read this next two, there is non-stop action, and you will want to be shaking some of these characters, but the old saying "the sins of the father", do come home to roost.
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Abingdon Press, and was not required to give a positive review.
