England, 1742. Beth Cunningham loves her simple existence. But left penniless with only a dowry held in trust after her father’s death, she fears her peaceful rural lifestyle is about to be snatched from her hands. And when her ruthless brother comes home from war intent on using her inheritance to advance his own career, she’s terrified her much-valued freedom is about to be married off forever.

Defying his ugly orders that she enter society, Beth soon gives in to her sibling’s demands when he turns violent. But with rebellion boiling over across the country, her Catholic heritage may be deadlier than her brother’s fearsome ambition.

Can she escape her family’s conspiratorial control and survive the coming revolution?

Historical fiction is a literary genre in which the narrative takes place in the past. Historical books capture the particulars of the time as correctly as possible to get authenticities, such as societal norms, ways, habits, and traditions. Historical fiction is put in a real location during a culturally recognizable moment. The facts and the actions from the narrative can be a mixture of real occasions and ones in the writer's creativity as they fill in the gaps. Characters may be pure fiction or based on actual people. But what about them and their look and attitudes, how they talk, and issues that they face, everything which should match the era.
