Synopsis

A Time for Treason begins in Virginia's Tidewater region on the brink of the American Revolution and climaxes on the island of Bermuda a few months after the battles of Concord and Bunker Hill. Acting as an agent for her influential French constituency, Comtesse Eugenie Devereux must measure the patriots political intent while appearing to be a carefree guest at the Whittingtons elaborate Virginia plantation. Against a backdrop of thoroughbred auctions, a governor's ball in Williamsburg, and an unforgettable night of slaughter and carnage, it is Eugenie's measure that is taken. She flees to Bermuda, where she takes refuge with the Tucker family, determined to complete her mission. The Tucker patriarch is deeply involved in anti-British-government activity and draws Eugenie into his scheme. From the gentle landscape of the Virginia coast to the final moments of the historically significant event at Bermuda's Tobacco Bay, this novel delivers passion, intrigue, and power on a grand scale, along with a hurricane, sailing ships, pirates, privateers, and romance - all set against an actual historical event that was one of the sparks that set off the American Revolution.
