Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 143896434X, Paperback)It is autumn of 1775, the eve of the Revolution. Lord Jeffery Cambridge, nineteen, is learning how to run the Virginia plantation he grew up on. His older brother, Lord Stephan, has left to head a militia company. His younger brother, Lord Jacob, lives on the plantation with him. With battles earlier that spring in Boston, Lady Mathilde Weiss, twenty-four, has been busy assisting her father, a physician. After an incident with a scraggly soldier, her parents fear for her safety. When Mathilde's friend asks her to come and visit, she decides to temporarily leave the turmoil in Boston. A dinner and dance brings together Mathilde and Jeffery. After a fox hunting accident, she finds herself taking care of his injuries. Despite the fears of heartbreak, Mathilde finds herself falling in love with Jeffery. However, the beating and death of one of his slaves threatens to drive them apart. She receives a letter from her sister telling her of the danger her family now faces in Boston. Mathilde feels torn between her new love and the love of her parents far away. Will she accept the love of a slave-holding planter much younger than herself, or will she deny her heart and return to her family despite the danger of a possible war?
