Abstract:

Sound the trumpet : Pre-Revolutionary America was stirring the flames for freedom! A past riddled by a cruel twist of fate, but the present held the distant glimmer of freedom in a new land. Daniel Bradford, a poor young Britisher, is separated in a cruel twist of fate from his sister, Lyna, and left to rot in the infamous Dartmoor Prison. His only hope for escape comes when he agrees to a seven-year indenture in America. But he discovers he has traded one imprisonment for another under a cruel and exacting master, Sir Leo Rochester. But eventually, Daniel marries a young woman, Holly Blanchard, and they settle near Mount Vernon, Virginia. Daniel meets George Washington and experiences firsthand the taste of freedom sweeping the land. Then tragedy strikes and Daniel moves his family to Boston, where he prospers and meets Sam Adams, the flaming patriot for independence. Bound by his loyalty to England, he struggles as he sees two of his sons caught up with the Sons of Liberty. As the storm clouds of revolution begin to gather, family and friends must take sides as the Colonies are inexorably swept into battle at Lexington and Concord. Daniel, too, must decide his loyalties not only politically, but deeply personal ones as well. - Publisher.

Song in a strange land: Two young men united by blood but divided by loyalties court the affections of Jeanne Corbeau in a conflict that allows no neutrals. A long, dangerous journey into the crucible of the American Revolution! Dake Bradford was a blazing American patriot who had taken a stand against the British on the Greens of Lexington. He had joined up with the colonial farmers and shopkeepers to form an army under the command of the newly appointed commander in chief, George Washington. Fanned by the fires of patriotism, their yearning for freedom has now broken out into a fight for the pursuit of inalienable rights longed for by every one of the Sons of Liberty. Sides had been drawn, and there would be no turning back. Caught in the middle of the American Revolution against the Crown of England are two families whose lives are complicated by their divided loyalties. Clive Gordon, Dake's first cousin, is a young physician who is also a Tory, the son of an English colonel who has sworn to put down the rebellion. Those fiery loyalties break out into open conflict when the Bradfords and Gordons find themselves on opposing sides at the Battle of Bunker Hill. During the first year of the Revolution, the conflict between Dake and Clive widens as both men court the affections of Jeanne Corbeau, the beautiful daughter of a French mountain man. Will the long, dangerous journey to Fort Ticonderoga decide their futures? - Publisher.
