Colonial New England is in revolt, not only against the British, but in many other aspects of life as well, as ardent patriot, Oliver Tewkesbury, unceasingly strives to answer the call to serve his fledgling country. The townspeople of Granville, Connecticut send Oliver and two young local comrades off to join up with Washington’s forces in New York. The enthusiastic patriots face unforeseen trials and an unanticipated fate, as Rebecca White faithfully awaits Oliver’s return, knowing he is already betrothed to another.
Revolution indeed! In Granville, congregants rebel against their officious loyalist minister, and young women thirst for a cultural transition toward educational parity and inclusion. But life becomes so fragile that God is summoned by all, Tory and Whig alike, as the hardships of war take their toll.
