The Description: A War-Torn Countryside Is No Place for a Lady
Mercy Lytton is a lady like none other. Raised amongst the Mohawks, she straddles two cultures, yet each are united in one cause. . .to defeat the French. Born with a rare gift of unusually keen eyesight, she is chosen as a scout to accompany a team of men on a dangerous mission. Yet it is not her life that is threatened. It is her heart. Condemned as a traitor, Elias Dubois faces the gallows. At the last minute, he is offered his freedom if he consents to accompany a stolen shipment of French gold to a nearby fort—but he is the one they stole it from in the first place. It turns out that the real thief is the beguiling woman, Mercy Lytton, for she steals his every waking thought. Can love survive divided loyalties in a backcountry wilderness?
My Thoughts: This is the third book in The Daughters of the Mayflower. I've been able to read all three and in order but one does not have to read them in order because each book is about a different bride and her story. The time periods are the only thing that is in order.
Mercy Lytton has an unique ability to see quite well. So she has been chosen as a scout to accompany men on a dangerous mission.
On this trip Elias Dubois meets Mercy. She intrigues him.
An interesting part fo this story is that Elias is to take a shipment of gold back to a fort-the same gold that he stole.
Quite a story!
And a romance like none other.
A great read to take on your beach trip this summer.
