In May 1775, while all of her friends in Boston are preparing their stand against the British, Nantucket-born patriot Miss Folger must accompany her father to the savage wilderness of East Florida, far from the growing American Revolution. In this new English colony, where great riches await the man willing to fight for them, Miss Folger soon finds herself deeply attracted to an English aristocrat who embodies all that she despises. Will she follow her heart or her profoundly held beliefs? Frederick Moberly, youngest son of an English earl, has a rare chance to make a fortune growing indigo in the new British colony of East Florida. As his labors for the Crown prove fruitful, he dreams of a bride from the upper class and perhaps even knighthood. But a spirited American woman soon inspires new dreams, and Frederick begins to question the very foundations of his life – and his faith.
