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.

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?« less
