Eliza Young is a privileged twenty year old in New York’s elite colonial society. A member of a loyalist family, she sees her world torn apart by war as neighbors and friends divide over American independence. Eliza endures the battle of New York, the great fire, and the carnage of war, clinging to a hope that Jacob will live. Jacob is in love with Eliza, but he is a patriot and her supposed enemy.
His vision of joining the American cause is based off romanticized principles. The troubles of the American army quickly show Jacob, fighting for freedom is marred with strife.
