Meadow MacKenna hates the British. Turned off her Irish farm and forced to book passage to America as an indentured servant, she understands the rebel desire to throw off the yoke of King George’s rule. But their Puritan roots run deep. Will liberty apply to Negroes, to Quakers, to Jews–to Irish Catholics like her? Or will majority rule serve the majority? She cannot commit to such a cause. Neither can she prevent the war from claiming the souls of her father and the man she loves.
