A captivating historical novel from the national bestselling author, as Ariana Franklin, of Mistress of the Art of Death. Makepeace Burke serves Patriots at her late father’s tavern on the Boston waterfront in 1765 and hates the redcoats with a vengeance. But even she can’t watch an angry mob drown an Englishman. She rescues him and nurses him back to health-and falls in love. In Patriot Boston, hers is an unforgivable sin-made worse by the fact that her Englishman turns out be the aristocratic Sir Philip Dapifer.
