Struggling alone on the family farm, Abigail Tidwell knows exactly who to blame for her hardships: the Americans. If it weren’t for their part in the war, her father and brothers would be home rather than fighting abroad. But no amount of antipathy could have prepared her for the shocking sight of a wounded American soldier on her property, a man in dire need of her help. 

Grudgingly, Abigail tends to the soldier’s injuries and anticipates the satisfaction of turning him over to the authorities once he is healed. But fate has other plans. Captain Emmett Prescott remembers little of the ambush on his men by a group of Shawnee Indians and even less about how he arrived in the unfamiliar barn.

After being nursed back to health by beautiful, if reluctant, Abigail, Emmett would do anything to save the men he left behind—including forcibly enlisting Abigail’s help. Soon, Abigail finds herself caught between two countries at war. And as her attraction for Emmett grows, her conflicted heart engages in its own silent battle. But when she is accused of treason for her actions, her survival rests in the hands of the very man she once considered her enemy.

My Review: 4 Stars

Most of the books that I read that take place in 1812 take place in England or British Territories, so it was a pleasant surprise to read one that takes place during the war that involved the US, Britain, and Canada.

Jennifer Moore isn't one who skimps on research and it's apparently obvious that this book is no exception. There are unpleasant war details given, but they were a part of life then and really add to the ambiance of the book. It was fascinating to read about what some people may have gone through while others across the pond were concerning themselves with the Ton and society balls.

I enjoyed the cast of characters--Abigail is a healer, Emmett a soldier, and the band of soldiers that they travel with are great. I could have handled a little more romance, to balance out the heaviness of war, but overall, it was an interesting tale.

Content: moderate war-type violence; very mild romance
