Overview

The beautiful but modest Hannah Thornton leaves Ireland in search of a family to call her own, with only three filled trunks and her faith in God. A scabrous voyage across the North Atlantic brings many adventures, and her life is changed when Nathan, a British seaman, falls in love with her. Hannah's deep respect and loyalty to her father causes Nathan to fear for her to learn his true identity.
Hannah's destination is a plantation near Charleston, South Carolina, at a time when slavery abounds and cotton is king. When Congress of the United States declares war on Great Britain, Hannah and Nathan become caught up in the War of 1812. Before the war is over, a British blockade along the eastern coast of the United States brings near devastation to South Carolina cotton planters.
At the Reybrook Plantation, Hannah finds her family, but with their love she must also share their burdens and heartaches. While employed as a teacher to the plantation owner's children, the owner's son, Ben Rey, and she establish a church. Things become complicated when Ben falls in love with her.
Is Hannah and Nathan's love strong enough to overpower the obstacles that come between them and to endure their long separation brought on by the war? And what will happen if Nathan meets Ben on the battlefield? To Love an Enemy is an intriguing love story that is filled with historical facts about the great powers of the world and their rivalry in the trade industry.
