About the book: An unlikely spy discovers freedom and love in the midst of the American Revolution.

As the British and Continental armies wage war in 1781, the daughter of a wealthy Virginia plantation owner feels conflict raging in her own heart. Lydia Caswell comes from a family of staunch Loyalists, but she cares only about peace. Her friend Sarah Hammond, however, longs to join the fight. Both women's families have already been divided by a costly war that sets father against son and neighbor against neighbor; a war that makes it impossible to guess who can be trusted.

One snowy night Lydia discovers a wounded man on the riverbank near Caswell Hall, and her decision to save him will change her life. Nathan introduces her to a secret network of spies, couriers, disguises, and coded messages---a network that may be the Patriots' only hope for winning the war. When British officers take over Caswell Hall and wreak havoc on neighboring plantations, Lydia will have to choose between loyalty and freedom; between her family's protection and her own heart's desires.

As both armies gather near Williamsburg for a pivotal battle, both Lydia and Sarah must decide how high a price they are willing to pay to help the men they love.

Part of the American Tapestries™ series: Each standalone novel in this line sets a heart-stirring love story against the backdrop of an epic moment in American history. This is the fifth book in the series.

My Review:
I loved this book!  I love it when a story reaches out and grabs my attention from the very first pages! The Prologue sets the scene and makes you want to know the whole story.  I really enjoyed the history that filled the story.  This story was set in 1781 during the American Revolutionary War.  I guess I never thought about those living in the colonies that were loyal to the King, and how they would of felt about the Rebels.  Being an American and proud of our independence, I only ever thought about all that the Rebels went through to throw off the bondage of Great Britain.  It's always interesting to read a story set during a familiar time in history as it makes that time period come alive.  So if you're looking for a great historical fiction book that is filled with excitement, mystery and a little romance, then this is the book for you!
