Star Rating Given: 5-stars
After Angelique’s step-father sells her sister to the highest bidder, she accepts Jean’s proposal. After all, he is safe, and his brother, Pierre, left the island years ago and hasn’t been seen since. Jean is a much better option than to risk being married off to a fur trader like her father.
…but that was before the war.
Jean is deported for being an American supporter and Angelique is forced to await his return. And her step-father isn’t so sure he will honor a deal made with an American trader.
With circumstances so changed, will Jean return in time? And if so, will Angelique still want to go with the safe bet?
Forbidden romance, corruption, spies, battle scenes, this book has it all!
I am a big fan of Jody Hedlund’s books. I’ve read all of them. Each one is better than the last, and this one was no exception. In fact, this was one of the best books I’ve read… ever.
I kept giving my son (who isn’t a big reader) updates on the story. It was so intense that he picked up a book (more on his level) and started reading.
By Far Hedlund’s Best Book Yet!!!!!!!
Book Description from Amazon:
Michigan Territory, 1814
A voyageur and a young woman swept up in a time of upheaval and danger
discover firsthand the high price of freedom.
The British Army has taken control of Michilimackinac Island and its fort, forcing the Americans to swear an oath of loyalty to the crown in order to retain their land. Pierre Durant is a fur trader who returns after being away from the island for years, only to find the family farm a shambles and those he cares about starving and at the mercy of British invaders.
Torn between the adventurous life of fur trading and guilt over neglecting his defenseless mother, Pierre is drawn deeper into the fight against the British–and into a relationship with Angelique MacKenzie, a childhood friend who’s grown into a beautiful woman. She now finds herself trapped by the circumstances of war and poverty, and the cruelty of her guardian, Ebenezer Whiley.
As tensions mount and the violence rages on, Pierre and Angelique must decide where their loyalties rest and how much they’ll risk for love.
