This is a well-researched and very well-written historical novel of the Battles of Saratoga and Bennington during the Revolutionary War.
Gregory Edgar has once again produced an exciting story about teenagers in the Revolutionary War. This time, the autumn foliage and rugged mountains of southern Vermont and New York’s Hudson Valley serve as the colorful backdrop for dramatic battles and unexpected romance.
Molly Cameron, beautiful and fiery “camp follower” daughter of a British soldier, becomes detached from the army during the Battle of Bennington. Later, alone in the wilderness, she confronts two young rebels, Danforth Reed and Ebenezer Dunham.
Though they start out as enemies, Molly and Danny soon find their hearts turning toward each other. Their fate, and that of American liberty, both hang in the balance as two great armies clash on the battlefield of Saratoga, NY, where Danny and Eben will come face to face with Molly’s father.
