About the Book
Colonial Massachusetts, 1775
Abigail Stowell is a rarity for her time. The comely young woman is educated, outspoken, and attuned to the charged political climate around her. She is a staunch Patriot. In short, she is a rebel. So when Gideon Whitlock, an avowed Tory, rides into her village, Abby is not only put off by his politics and arrogance but is also annoyed by her undeniable attraction to him.
When she observes a clandestine meeting between her Patriot father and Gideon, Abby soon realizes that in a world divided by loyalties, not everything is as it seems. Soon she is drawn deeper into political intrigue than she ever dreamed possible. And just as feelings begin to heat up between Abby and Gideon, the shot heard round the world ignites the beginning of war between the colonists and the British redcoats. There is no time for hesitation, and Abby finds herself thrust into a world of intrigue, treachery, and terror. Lives hang in the balance, and Abby will stop at nothing to support the Patriot movement—but will her allegiance to the cause mean losing the man she loves?
About the Author
Carol Warburton has written a delightful and adventurous romance in her Revolutionary War novel, Petticoat Spy. I have always loved novels written about the Revolutionary War and Warburton’s novel is no different. From the cover of the novel, to the back cover blurb, to the first page, this book will captivate the attention of readers. I love how the main character, Abigail Stowell, is brave and bold and wants to help with the war effort; to do something to make a difference. And in the process falls in love. This is a charming read for those that love historical fiction and romance.
