A gripping, heart-wrenching story of love and betrayal across the boundary of the American Revolutionary War. The next captivating story for readers who loved My Dear Hamilton, Flight of the Sparrow and Outlander.
1780. Addie looks around at the soldiers celebrating their latest victory. American independence is within reach, but her heart feels heavy with grief. With her husband gone, she must leave the army camp, and the people she has come to love, and choose a respectable path to guard the secret she now carries alone.
Seeking shelter with her aunts in Virginia, Addie tries to mold herself back into the proper and dutiful woman she was before the war, and before the love of a fierce, dark-eyed warrior, changed her forever. But when a band of rogue British soldiers arrives on the farm, will the strength she has gained from travelling with the Revolutionary army be enough to save her loved ones?
Fighting turmoil in Virginia, Addie faces an even worse trial when terrible news arrives from the front: should she stay silent and keep her family safe, or divulge her secret and save an innocent man’s life?

A great third book in this wonderful trilogy, America’s Promise continued to give us an wonderful insight into American history. While we do see the continued outcome of the war, in the this the war has ended and the country is attempting to rebuild itself.
Addie too must face the outcome of war – having loved and lost and now holding a secret that she must guard and protect – wondering if she’ll ever see her love again.
The author’s beautiful style makes this book too an absolutely riveting read.
What came through to me from this fantastic trilogy is the fact that while the men put their lives on the line, it’s the women who must carry the burden at home and then live with often terrible loss of fathers, brothers and husbands, making choices they never thought they’d have to make. The strength and deep inner resources of these women make this trilogy a most inspiring one.
