“Imagine if The Scarlet Letter ... were awesome.” 
In the year Sixteen eighty-eight, the Glorious Revolution and the uprising of Louis the Fourteenth put rifts and war between the English and the French (and their respective allies) that spread all the way across the ocean to the Colonies of New England. The French and English War in Europe gave rise to the Nine Years War, causing unrest, economic crisis, import/export issues, and the breakout of King William's War across the respective settlements of New England and the Viceroyalty of New France on Colonial pre-American soil. When a French sailor's sudden unpopularity in Connecticut becomes the cause of concern for a young, headstrong New English woman, it sets the course for a spiraling of events that leads to treason, murder, arson, adultery, torture, and revenge. Add to that: pirates, Indians, militia, war, witchcraft, religion, highwaymen, swashbuckling swordfights — oh, yeah, and don't forget humor — and what more could you possibly want? As epic a tale as any ever told ... and of course, every story is a love story.
