This long-awaited third book of the acclaimed American Patriot Series once again sweeps readers into the tumultuous world of revolution. The story resumes with Elizabeth Howard scrambling for crucial intelligence General George Washington desperately needs to oppose British General William Howe's overwhelming invasion force. Elizabeth's assignment will lead her into the very maw of war at the Battle of Brooklyn Heights, where disaster threatens to end the American rebellion. Yet all the while Elizabeth's heart is fixed on Jonathan Carleton, whose whereabouts remain unknown more than a year after he disappeared into the wilderness while on assignment for Washington. She does not know that Carleton, now the Shawnee war chief White Eagle, is caught in a bitter war of his own--against white settlers encroaching on Shawnee lands and the longing for Elizabeth that will not give him peace--even as unseen forces gather to finally destroy him. Can her love bridge the miles between them and the savage bonds that threaten to tear him forever from her arms?
