Availability: In stock (2)
It is 1769, ten years since America‰Ûªs colonial militia had joined with the British regular army and defeated the French for dominion of Canada. The current feeling about what it means to be loyal to the King has changed. While many colonists are angry about England‰Ûªs unjust taxation, wealthy merchant John Treegate remains fiercely loyal and certain that an agreement can be reached between the colonies and their mother country. Deciding to travel to England to appeal to the government there means leaving his motherless, eleven-year-old son Peter on his own, apprenticed to one of Treegate‰Ûªs friends, a manufacturer of barrel staves. Peter‰Ûªs new master is not severe, but the senior apprentice is a vicious bully and worse. A chain of events leads to trouble for Peter‰ÛÓinvolving murder, shipwreck, loss of memory, adoption by a strange and bitter Scotsman, until finally he is reunited with his father on the eve of America‰Ûªs battle for independence. First title in the acclaimed Treegate Series.(If you are trying to purchase this item and it shows as "out of stock," please call the store during business hours (512-382-1728) to double check--we are constantly re-stocking items and it simply may not have updated to the web.
