In All Cases Whatsoever
Imagine meeting a charming young woman at a dance; you fall in love, marry, and sail with her to America. At the same time you save your best friend from being captured as a deserter from the British army. Mix in literaly stumbling on a gold ingot while fly fishing and smuggling it to New York where you join the rebels. Independence from England has just been declared and the British fleet is in New York Harbor. Your country and your life are in jeopardy. This is the setting for In All Cases Whatsoever. Mr. Ford’s plot of battles and unlikely spies dovetails with history, and the book’s final event, which occurred in the Mohawk Valley, is so bizarre, one would believe it to be fiction. Chief Honeoye plays an important part. But readers will enjoy sorting it out for themselves.
