Seth Braxton survives the American Revolution. All he wants is his Virginia home, a peaceful life, marry, and raise a family. Instead, duty to his sister, and a painting of a lovely woman draw him to England, the country he recently fought against.
There he meets Juleah, not only a striking beauty but also a woman with a mind of her own and a kind heart. He is smitten, but wonders if she can love a man, who is an American patriot.
Seth takes the reins of Ten Width, the family estate, while comforting his sister, who has lost her grandfather, husband, and son. Odd things begin happening. His persistent investigation uncovers a terrible conspiracy.
The book pulls you into a time period when life for even the gentry was hard and unforgiving. Rita kept the story moving and this reader turning the pages. Once the book comes out in its final form, I know it will find its way into the hearts of historical fiction lovers.
