In 1862 Virginia, during the tumultuous "Seven Days" battles of the Peninsula Campaign, federal troops prepare to capture Richmond. Undercover agent Bronwen Llyr is working with her sister Kathryn, a volunteer nurse for the Union Army, when they learn that their brother has been taken as a prisoner-of-war. Now, Bronwen must engineer his flight from prison before the date set for his hanging. But as time escapes her, so too does hope for her young brother.

As the harsh reality of war burns all too close to home, it is the sisters who fight for the brothers in their own battle of right and wrong, of love and war...

Praise for the Seneca Falls Historical Mystery Series:

"Seneca Falls is our perfect mirror for viewing the American women and men of the 1860s" (Chicago Tribune)

"[Monfredo] is at her best pulling plot twists out of actual events. Her research is evident of every page. (Publishers Weekly)

"Written beautifully, richly satisfying both to the head and to the heart." (Anne Perry)

In swashbuckling style, Bronwen cross-dresses to make the trip cross-country, dines with the enemy, and springs her brother before spiriting off to safety Great Britain’s tobacco investment and rescuing two more threatened males via stiletto and derringer.

Reviewing the Evidence

I read the entire book and will continue to read the series -- the events are fascinating, the stories intriguing -- but if Bronwen Llyr doesn't shut up and learn to listen to others, and doesn't tone down her arrogance a little, it's going to be an uphill climb.
