The thrilling saga continues...
Wind of the Spirit
As Elizabeth Howard scrambles for crucial intelligence, she is drawn
into the very maw of war at the Battle of Brooklyn Heights, where
disaster threatens to end the American rebellion. Yet all the while her
heart is fixed on Jonathan Carleton, whose whereabouts remain unknown
more than a year after he disappeared into the wilderness. Carleton,
now the Shawnee war chief White Eagle, is caught in a bitter war of his
own against white settlers encroaching on Shawnee lands and the longing
for Elizabeth that will not give him peace. Can her love bridge the
miles between them—and the savage bonds that threaten to tear him
forever from her arms?
Daughter of Liberty
In the blockaded port of Boston, Elizabeth Howard plays a dangerous
game as the infamous courier Oriole, hunted by the British for
smuggling intelligence and munitions to the Sons of Liberty by night.
By day she flirts with British officers to gain access to information
the rebels so desperately need. But she hasn’t counted on the arrival
of Jonathan Carleton, an officer in the Seventeenth Light Dragoons. To
her dismay, the attraction between them is immediate, powerful—and
fought on both sides in a war of wits and words. As the first blood is
spilled at Lexington and Concord, Carleton fights his own private
battle of faith. And the headstrong Elizabeth must learn to follow
God’s leading as her dangerous role thrusts her ever closer to the
carnage of Bunker Hill.
Brigadier General Jonathan Carleton has pledged his heart to fiery
Elizabeth Howard. But when General Washington orders him to undertake a
perilous journey deep into Indian country and persuades Elizabeth to
continue her work as a spy, their plans to marry are put on hold.
Captured and enslaved by the Seneca, Carleton is stripped of everything
but his faith. He is rescued at last by a band of Shawnee, who adopt
him as the warrior White Eagle. Rising to become war chief, he is drawn
into a bitter war against the white settlers who threaten to overrun
the Shawnee’s ancestral lands. Meanwhile, in New York City, as the
British prepare to attack the outmatched Continental Army, Elizabeth
despairs of ever learning Carleton’s fate. But when the western
frontier explodes into flame, the name of White Eagle begins to spread
beyond the borders of Ohio Territory.

John and Abigail Adams
Relying heavily on the extraordinary correspondence between the second
president and his wife, this joint biography sheds light not only on
the characters of two remarkable people, but also on the tumultuous
times through which they lived. John and Abigail Adams played a
critical role in many of the pivotal events of their era. This American
Experience production reminds us that the Founding Fathers—and
Mothers—were real, flawed, multi-dimensional people, who had no idea
how things would turn out. (Excerpted from Amazon.)
Jeff Daniels is General George Washington, the increasingly desperate
leader of the Continental Army. By December 1776, the tired and hungry
army had retreated to the far banks of the Delaware River, a mere
shadow of the original 20,000-strong force. Knowing that defeat means
the end of the revolution, Washington takes the offensive in a
dangerous surprise attack that turns the tide of the war. The Crossing
brims with rich historical detail and comes alive with the stories of
officers, soldiers, and a very human George Washington. (Excerpted from
