RedcoatBook - 1993
The fates of Jonathan Becket and Sam Gilpin are linked by shared enemies and passions in a tale of the American Revolution set in Philadelphia
A Family . . . A City . . . A Soldier . . .
Torn Across a Bloody Divide
It is autumn, 1777, and the cradle of liberty, Philadelphia, has fallen to the British. Yet the true battle has only just begun.
On both sides, loyalties are tested and families torn asunder. The young Redcoat, Sam Gilpin, has seen his brother die. Now he must choose between duty to a distant King and the call of his own conscience. And for the men and women of the prosperous Becket family, the revolution brings bitter conflict between those loyal to the crown, and those with dreams of liberty.
Soon, across the fields of ice and blood in a place called Valley Forge, history will be rewritten, changing the lives and fortunes of these men and women forever.
Amidst the turbulent world of British-occupied Philadelphia in 1777, young Redcoat Sam Gilpin questions his loyalty to the king when his brother dies, while the wealthy Becket family is divided by conflict, and all of their destinies are forever changed at a place called Valley Forge. Reprint.
