JACOB: The Monroe Legacy Begins (The Monroe #2)
by Jim Wetton
When Jacob witnesses the Boston Massacre, he is spurred into joining his uncle in the radical murmurings of revolution and freedom—even though his father is decidedly against all such notions.
When his uncle is killed in the Battles of Lexington and Concord, Jacob joins George Washington’s troops and befriends inspiring patriot Nathan Hale, who in turn introduces him to the lovely Anne Bedford. As the war escalates around them, Jacob falls for Anne—and he learns that Anne, along with Hale, is part of a ring of American spies. Despite Jacob’s surprise at Anne’s true participation in the war, he marries her, and they begin to raise a family.
Hannah Adams, adopted into the family of John and Abigail Adams, wants to be involved in America’s founding: she wants to help write the US Constitution. Close friends with James Madison, she has many suggestions for improving the document. But can a woman get any credit for such an important contribution?
As America’s founding progresses, Jacob loses Anne to yellow fever, and Hannah wonders if she’ll ever have her own family. When Jacob’s and Hannah’s paths cross, could they see each other as a chance to start a new life?
