Surrender the Night is another wonderful story by MaryLu Tyndall!
A timid American farm girl at the mercy of the enemy. . .A wounded British sailor driven into hiding. . .Both are about to change the course of history forever.
When British soldiers invade Baltimore amid the War of 1812, Rose McGuire, alone on her family farm, is easy prey for a brutal lieutenant. In the midst of the attack, she’s saved by British 2nd Lieutenant Alexander Reed. Will she now have to heal, as well as hide, this enemy soldier?
Alex hadn’t meant to kill his superior, nor get shot in the process. Now badly wounded, he’s at the mercy of this tomboy who obviously hates him. Can he trust her or will she turn him over to the Americans?
Rose is having trouble keeping Alex hidden from her family, the townspeople, and the man intent on courting her. Will the discovery of Alex’s presence force her to accept an abhorrent proposal?
As their love blooms, trouble looms, for the British are on the move again. This time, their target is Washington DC. Will these young lovers at heart find themselves enemies at war?
I have long been a fan of MaryLu Tyndall. This author writes exciting adventures that keep you on the edge of your seat. In her novels, she draws you into danger and intrigue, making you feel as if you are in the midst of it all. Surrender the Night is no exception.
Enter into this exciting story set in a little known war that some call the second American Revolution. If the fledgling country called the United States had not driven back the British, subsequent history would have been far different. As the two-hundredth anniversary of the War of 1812 draws closer, take this chance to learn more about the lives of ordinary Americans. . .and Englishmen. . .and what they stood to lose if we had lost this war.
