Deceptive Promises

By Amber Miller, Amber Stockton


-- Living during the American Revolution and the formation of a new nation, Margret Scott gets involved with a spy and a life of deception that could endanger herself, her family and the man she loves. --

Is deception fair in wartime? Margret Scott finds she must deal with this question as she becomes attracted to the enigmatic Samuel Lowe. As the tensions grow between the colonists and the British soldiers and loyalists, Margret struggles to determine where Samuel's loyalties lie, despite his reassurances that they lie with the colonists. Samuel's duties have him working for both sides of this war, and he is often torn between what is right and what is wrong. He promises Margret she can trust him, and Margret promises him she does. But can promises born in deception be trusted? Can relationships built in uncertainty survive?

Book Takeaway:

There are times when deceit is necessary, but we are all responsible for our actions, and should our feet haste to deceit, we should also be certain our integrity isn't at risk.

Why the author wrote this book:

This is the 3rd in a series, and with the series set in Delaware, I wanted to showcase the part this little state played in the Revolutionary War. History books talk about Valley Forge and George Washington crossing the Delaware, but they rarely delve into the details of the Battle of Cooch's Bridge, the only battle fought on Delaware soil. Throw in a soldier loyal to the colonists but also spying on the British and a young woman who catches his eye, and you've got the story.
