Overview

While cannons roar and rockets ignite American skies, disease ravages the upper Connecticut Valley. Few notice the sufferings of the families . . . Of a single child . . . A remarkable lad named Joseph. Attentions are forced elsewhere on the Chesapeake, which guards the entrance to the infant nation's threatened capital.

It is the height of the War of 1812. As the beleaguered American forces begin to rally, Britain's military is divided between battlefronts on two continents. Until Napoleon can be toppled and all of the Crown's resources can be diverted to the American campaign, Britain needs a tactical diversion. They attack the Chesapeake Bay!

Lieutenant Jed Pearson heads to war, leaving his beloved Willows estate in the care of powerless freed slaves. But soon circumstances will blur the line between adversary and friend, family and foe, British and American.

In this second volume of the epic historical series Free Men and Dreamers, witness the saga of five families caught in the tumult of the oft-forgotten war that cemented American liberty and set the stage for the great work of the Restoration.

    Superlative Historical Saga About America!!!

    Free Men And Dreamers Vol. II: Twilight's Last Gleaming by L.C. Lewis

    In this second volume of Laurie's magnificent story of Our beautiful Country and the courage and bravery of a few families looking to God to help protect a young America, we also find treachery thwarting Jed and Hannah's every footsteps. With the British coming closer to The Willows, Jed's home, and where a traitor lingers to ruin Jed's life and all he holds dear, he turns to God where he finds the answers to his troubles. While Jed agonizes over where Hannah and her sister Beatrice are, they are attempting to get to Stephen Mack's home in Tunbridge, Vermont and wind up battling a Typhoid epidemic.

    While the Earl of Whittington tries to protect his young son from traitors, a kidnapping is prevented, but a murder ensues, causing more heartache and blame. A family secret that connects Jed with a British family causes more heartache for Jed and his sister Frannie, when a stranger is caught on Willows land by Frannie. When she and Jed learn of his identity, she feels betrayed, but Jed feels relieved. When Jed's friend and overseer of his plantation, Marcus O'Malley, leaves to go see his family he hasn't seen in years, he stays, finds the love of his life in a young blind woman and helps repair a ship to fight the British. Beatrice has decided to go to Canada to see about her husband's release from prison, but is waylaid. Dudley has turned to God and is helped by a woman in bringing books of poetry to him, then is sent to another prison in Nova Scotia.

    In the last paragraph of this volume, Jed sums up what we as an American people need to understand and that if we don't look to Heaven, we won't understand God's plan for this great Country.
