War Forces a Choice Between Love and Country
A trip home from England to Maryland in 1812 finds Emeline Baratt a captive on a British warship and forced to declare her allegiance between the British and Americans. Remaining somewhat politically neutral on a ship where her nursing skills are desperately needed is fairly easy—until she starts to have feelings for the first lieutenant who becomes her protector. However, when the captain sends her and Lieutenant Owen Masters on land to spy, she must choose between her love for him and her love for her country.

REVIEW: This is the sixth installment of the Daughters of the Mayflower series. Each book is written by multiple authors and covers a variety of historical conflicts in America’s history. This slice of history is the War of 1812.

Main female character is Emeline who is on her way home aboard one of her father’s ships when they are stopped by leading man, First Lt. Owen Masters. Sparkes fly between them some good some bad. She starts to think that all the trouble might be that God is not pleased with her and she’s being punished for past sins.

Sandwiched in between historical events, spying, Emeline trying to use her nursing skills to help prisoners there is a riveting historical journey during the war of 1812, with a splash of romance over the high seas action adventure you expect from this author. I was intrigued and learned much about this time period and the high price Emeline and First Lt. Owen Masters paid in order to be a spy and get the information to their source so lives could be saved.  

Reluctantly Owen and Emeline embark a dangerous mission together for the sake of their countries. They don’t trust one another but they must arrive in time,. “Lives” were at stake. 

There are still more novels to be read in the Daughters of Mayflower series out soon. I enjoyed the history notes from the author in the back of the book.
