Book Summery
Amherstburg, Ontario, Canada, 1812

Struggling alone on the family farm, Abigail Tidwell knows exactly who is to blame for her hardships: the Americans. If it weren't for their part in the war, her father and brothers would be home rather than fighting abroad. But no amount of antipathy could have prepared her for the shocking sight of a wounded American soldier on her property, a man in dire need of her help. Grudgingly, Abigail tends to the soldier's injuries and anticipates the satisfaction of turning him over to the authorities once he is healed. But fate has other plans.

Captain Emmett Prescott remembers little of the ambush on his men by a group of Shawnee Indians and even less about how he arrived in the unfamiliar barn. After being nursed back to health by beautiful, if reluctant, Abigail, Emmett would do anything to save the men he left behind—including forcibly enlisting Abigail's help. Soon, Abigail finds herself caught between two countries at war. And as her attraction for Emmett grows, her conflicted heart engages in its own silent battle. But when she is accused of treason for her actions, her survival rests in the hands of the very man she once considered her enemy.

My Review

I really liked this new short novel from Author Jennifer Moore. I especially liked the different setting that she hasn't written about before. The story takes place in Canada during the war of 1812 between a young America and their former countrymen England. 

The main character of Abigail Tidwell I liked from the start. She was brave, beautiful, kind, and intelligent. I also liked how her father encouraged her to hone her skills and her intellect and not stifle them. Back then women didn't do a man's job, but Abigail breaks through all of those barriers. It was a nice twist. I also really liked Captain Emmett Prescott. Once he and Abigail met you could feel the connection they had. The romance was sweet and went a little fast. Under the circumstances of a war going on I liked how it unfolded.

The supporting cast of American soldiers were also very likable as was Abigail's father. The villain in the story was written well because I despised him from the very first time the reader meets him.

This book is only about 200 pages so it's the perfect one to read in an afternoon. There were a few loose ends that hopefully will be written in another book. I would love to revisit these characters and setting in a sequel.

  1. I like that this book is set in Canada. There aren't as many historical novels set in Canada.
