Daughter of LibertyUnknown - 2004
It's Eastertide, April 1775, and in Boston, circumstances are escalating toward a fateful confrontation between the British Regulars and the Sons of Liberty. Caught in the rift between Whig and Tory, Elizabeth Howard is torn between her love for her prominent parents, who have strong ties with the British, and her secret opposition-as the infamous courier Oriole-to England. Elizabeth must learn when the Regulars plan to seize a critical store of munitions. But she hasn't counted on the arrival of Jonathan Carleton, a captain in the Seventeenth Light Dragoons. To Elizabeth's dismay, the attraction between them is immediate, powerful-and fought on both sides in a war of wits and words. As Carleton quickly wins General Thomas Gage's confidence and the assignment to ferret out Oriole, Elizabeth realizes he is her most dangerous foe-and the possessor of her heart. As the first blood is spilled at Lexington and Concord, Carleton fights his own private battle of faith. And the headstrong Elizabeth must learn to follow God's leading as her dangerous role thrusts her ever closer to the carnage of Bunker Hill.
