“If we do not work together, we die together.”

                             —Mercy Lytton                                   

A tale of intrigue and espionage with a bit of romance sizzling right below the surface! Set during the French and Indian War this tale of Elias DuBois, a captivating, rugged man being transported as a traitor, and Mercy Lytton, an interesting young woman who fits in neither the Indian world nor that of the white man, is captivating and stimulating. The adventure begins when the pair leaves Fort Wilderness pretending to be man and wife in order to transport a load of gold to the British.

Mercy, who serves as a scout for the British, is not your typical colonial woman. She is a very capable woman, well-trained in the ways of the frontier. In Elias DuBois, Mercy meets her match. Both are strong-willed, competent people. The pull of attraction is tinged with uncertainty on both of their parts. For Mercy, Elias’s role as a traitor must be resolved. For Elias, his obligations and Mercy’s work as a British scout play a role.

As their adventures take them deeper into troublesome territory, their lives depend on themselves, their faith, and the two people with whom they travel as well as their wits.  Take the time and follow Elias and Mercy on their trip and see how they outwit the Indians, the French, and even a few of their own. Absolutely an interesting read that you will not want to put down! Great for readers of historical fiction and inspirational fiction!
