Description

Hailed by the Chicago Tribune as "an exciting tale of love and war in the tradition of Gone with the Wind," Gwen Bristow's New York Times–bestselling novel tells the spellbinding story of a dressmaker who spies for the rebel cause in Revolutionary-era Charleston A bustling port city, Charleston, South Carolina, is the crossroads of the American Revolution where supplies and weapons for the rebel army must be unloaded and smuggled north. From the window of the dressmaker's shop where she works, lovely Celia Garth, recently engaged to the heir to a magnificent plantation, watches all of this thrilling activity.When the unthinkable occurs and the British capture and occupy Charleston, bringing fiery retribution to the surrounding countryside, Celia sees her world destroyed. The rebel cause seems lost until the Swamp Fox, American General Francis Marion, takes the fight to the British—and one of his daring young soldiers recruits Celia to spy on the rebels' behalf. From the ashes of Charleston and the Carolina countryside will rise a new nation—and a love that will change Celia Garth forever.
