Susannah Mills is an ordinary young woman of the Massachusetts-Bay Colony, more interested in skipping her school lessons than in the the growing rebellion against King George. But when the rebellion hits home, everything changes. Her quiet life is shattered, and she has to flee to Nova Scotia with her father.
They find what feels like a safe haven in Nova Scotia, and she is just settling back into some sense of normalcy—but is there any safe place when an empire is at war with itself?
Live the upheaval the Revolution meant to those who wanted only to live quietly as a loyal subject of the British Crown—and feel the price paid by America’s opponents for its independence.
