A Revolutionary Engagement
Book Two in The Wellington Patriot Series
In book two of the Wellington Patriot Series, Baldwin and Bronwyn find themselves on the same plantation, Greenway Court, home of Lord Thomas Fairfax and his nephew, Thomas "Bryan" Martin. They are both indentured servants, Bronwyn as the housekeeper and Baldwin as a tobacco field worker. Events leading to the Revolutionary War bring George Washington to the plantation to visit his old friends and he is first introduced to Baldwin and Bronwyn.
When the war begins, Baldwin must choose which side to fight on, the British, his original homeland, or the Patriots, those fellow countrymen of his new homeland. He is forced to fight for one side but circumstances change after he is captured as a prisoner of war.
Meanwhile Bronwyn must keep a secret while continuing to tend the house and entertain visitors from both sides of the war at the plantation. Once that secret is revealed, she is banned from the plantation and wonders if Baldwin will ever find her again.
"A Revolutionary Engagement was an amazing story of love divided by war and the real struggles of the men and women of the Revolutionary War. Bronwyn and Baldwin were so much in love, but had so much going against them. The heartaches and triumphs. The sheer determination to be together when everything was pulling them apart. Relying on friends as well as strangers. Having faith and inner strength. I highly recommend this amazing book to everyone, whether you are a history buff or not. I definitely did not want to put it down."

"Wow!!! Cheryl R. Lane does it again in Book 2 of The Wellington Patriot Series. "A Revolutionary Engagement" is a must read. The novel is a descriptive told historical romance tale. Cheryl R. Lane offers the richest character details I have ever read. The reader gets to know each and every character and actually get involved in their stories. She has developed the characters and their conflicting emotions well. The author gives the reader a brilliant weaving of historical facts and fiction that brings this period in America's history to life. Her delivery to the reader is exceptional!
Bronwyn's and Baldwin's lives were changed forever when they became indentured servants in the colonies of the New World (You must read how this happens in Book One "Voyage of the Heart."). This Book Two is "just the beginning of forever." This novel is so well done, I highly recommend and can't wait to see what is in store for Bronwyn and Baldwin in Book Three of The Wellington Patriot Series!"
