Synopsis

Coming of age during the American Revolution, Jonah is torn between honoring his Loyalist father's dying wish and taking up the cause of his Patriot neighbors. Inspired by his young, charismatic teacher, Nathan Hale, Jonah begins to question his family's beliefs. When a decision he makes leads to Nathan's execution, Jonah must live with the damage he has caused and learn to fight for what he knows to be right. Anna Myers's revolutionary war tale brings fresh meaning to the words "I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country," blending all the excitement that comes with battle and espionage with a thought-provoking plot about Jonah's ethical dilemma.

It's tough to provide any suspense in a story about Nathan Hale, whose hanging for being a spy is so well known, so Myers invents a young student of Hale's from his Connecticut classroom to carry readers' interest.
