From the Daughters of the Potomac series, book 1 Before the Scarlet Dawn, book 2 Beside Two Rivers, book 3 Beyond the Valley.
C.J.'s dad would have been 75. He died when he was only 40.
Caught in the talons of servitude, she falls in love with a young conscientious doctor, Alex Hutton, who has arrived in Virginia to care for his widowed sister in law and two young nieces. Called back to serve in Washington's army, he promises he will return for her, gain her freedom and wed her. Yet other plans were made for Sarah when her bankrupt owner sells her. Will she make her way back to Alex and freedom as he searches for her? Or will her hopes be crushed at the hands of the man who deceived her long ago in Cornwall when she faced destitution?
