Maiden America

By Jeannette DiLouie

Historical fiction | Paperback, eBook


The fate of the brand new United States of America is in peril as the British take over New Jersey in December 1776. Unable to flee Princeton, Abigail Carpenter has to watch her enemies march into town, take it over and throw her brother into prison, leaving her and her sister-in-law alone to care for five officers, including an arrogant captain, an unsettling lieutenant, and an attentive sergeant she has no desire to know better. As if that’s not difficult enough, another unexpected guest arrives on her doorstep: a wounded patriot spy with nowhere else to turn. Just like that, she's invited into a dangerous world of espionage that could make or break both her and her fledgling country. With the threat of a hangman's noose encircling her neck and an unexpectedly complicated friendship on her mind, it's up to Abigail to figure out what's truly important and what she can sacrifice if she has no other choice.

Jeannette DiLouie was born a New Jersey girl and will die the same even if she grew up in Pennsylvania, lived in Maryland and is now back in PA. She’s also a cookie dough-eating, travel-obsessed bookworm and editor who loves helping others reach their own writing goals and dreams. Ethnically half-Italian, Jeannette is tragically addicted to carbohydrates. Ethnically half-Scottish, she’s counting down the days when she can go visit again. And being just under five-foot three, she happily claims her short-girl rights to climb on any shelf or counter she needs to.
