She Blames Herself for the Bounty on Papa’s Head
Fleeing the Shadows (Dangerous Loyalties Book Two)
The fictional account of Daughters of the American Revolution patriot, Mary Shirley McGuire continues in this fast-paced novel.
It’s late summer 1775 in the Alleghany Highlands. Thirteen-year-old Mary Shirley is still recovering from emotional wounds inflicted when she risked her life delivering traitorous dispatches. She trusted the wrong men, and now the family must flee Indian Creek to stay ahead of British Loyalists who seek her papa’s life.
But they can’t risk being captured by taking the main road to Daniel Boone’s trail that leads into Kentucky territory. They must endure the more dangerous and grueling hunters’ path that leads to rough frontier forts along the Clinch River. Passions are ignited, friendships are formed, and shocking lessons are learned.
Mary’s emotional trauma worsens with each step. Once they cross the Cumberland Gap, they’re at the mercy of God and the Chickamauga Cherokee to make it to Fort Boonesborough alive.
