This is a fantastic story. Once Eleanor makes it to America how is she going to survive. Her indenture is bought out by a man who needs a woman to raise his daughter properly. Eleanor is scared when she first meets Samuel. Samuel isn’t sure if he wants to support the crown or the Sons of Liberty. Many things happen in this story and the romance is good also. I received this book from Barbour for a fair and honest opinion.
Proper English governess Eleanor Morgan flees to the colonies to escape the wrath of a brute of an employer. When the Charles Town family she s to work for never arrives to collect her from the dock, she is forced to settle for the only reputable choice remaining to her marriage to a man she s never met. Trapper and tracker Samuel Heath is a hardened survivor used to getting his own way by brain or by brawn, and he s determined to find a mother for his young daughter. But finding a wife proves to be impossible. No upstanding woman wants to marry a murderer.”
