About the book
A family divided by war. A hero born of tragedy. A bond that lasts a lifetime.
1754. Inseparable since birth and growing up in India, Theo and Connie Courtney are torn apart by the tragic death of their parents.
Theo, wracked with guilt, seeks salvation in combat and conflict, joining the British in the war against the French and Indian army.
Connie, believing herself abandoned by her brother, and abused and brutalised by a series of corrupt guardians, makes her way to France, where she is welcomed into high society. Here, she once again finds herself at the mercy of vicious men, whose appetite for war and glory lead her to the frontlines of the French battlefield in North America.
As the siblings find their destinies converging once more, they realise that the vengeance and redemption they both desperately seek could cost them their lives …
An epic story of tragedy, loss, betrayal and courage that brings the reader deep into the seething heart of the French and Indian War.
