Abstract:

A beautiful woman, desired by two very different brothers, fights for the freedom of others in this spellbinding saga set during "Bleeding Kansas." The daughter of abolitionists whose isolated cabin on the Kansas-Missouri border serves as a stop on the Underground Railroad, Deborah Whitlaw is devastated when pro-slavery marauders murder her parents. Yet she can no more extinguish the flame of justice that burns inside her than she can forget her mother and father. She vows to continue their fight, no matter the cost, and joins forces with a runaway black woman and a mission-educated Shawnee girl to spirit many fugitives northward. Deborah's fiery personality attracts two aristocratic English brothers. Rolf Hunter is violent and indomitable; he wants to capture Deborah and bend her to his will. Dane is the polar opposite of his sibling. Honest, gentle, and idealistic, he wins Deborah's heart, but their tender romance faces staggering obstacles in a state and nation lurching toward civil war. For a blessed interval, Deborah finds solace with Conrad, a German nobleman who has brought his peace-loving Mennonite tenants to Kansas to found a colony. But Rolf, now the head of a gang of pro-slavery bushwhackers, soon shatters Deborah's idyll. Can she keep him from crushing not only her, but also her friends and the abolitionist cause they've risked their lives to support' A magnificent tale of love and honor, danger and destiny, Daughter of the Sword takes readers on a thrilling journey into the darkest chapter of American history and pays tribute to the brave men and women who led the nation back into the light.
