Description

On a warm, beautiful sunny day in June 1782, the women and young children of the village of Chester come together to defend their still-fledgling settlement against the invading and much more well-armed Americans. Armed only with their cunning and imagination, this rag-tag group of settlers pushed back the marauding intruders without the loss of a single life. In this fictional account of those events, veteran author Vernon Oickle weaves facts and legend to tell a story that has become part of Nova Scotia’s heritage and folklore.

GRIPPING

—Glenna Jenkins, author of Somewhere I Belong

 

THRILLER
"This is an historical thriller of the first order. It is a page turner . . . a book you simply won’t be able to put down.”
— Robert Hirtle,  journalist
