The Gentle Rebel brings the dynamic saga of the Winslow family into the American Revolution. Starting with the first Pilgrim settlement at Plymouth, The House of Winslow novels have vividly described the forces that shaped early American history and its people. Book 3, The Indentured Heart, brought the story to pre-Revolution days.
Nathan Winslow, the son of Adam and Molly, was at first opposed to the idea of revolution against the British crown, but eventually he becomes an American patriot. His love for the beautiful Abigail Howland, a proud and spoiled Tory, lies in direct conflict with his mission to help free his land. From the hotbed of patriotic activity in Boston to the green fields of Lexington, from Breed's Hill and Bunker Hill to the deadly overland winter trip toward Fort Ticonderoga Winslow carries the banner of his family heritage and faith.
