Transcendent Loyalties

A Novel of the American Revolution

by S. D. Banks

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
The years 1770 through 1775 witnessed a dramatic spike in the long simmering tensions between King George III and his American colonies, and nowhere was the growing crisis more acute than in Boston. During the course of those five years, Bostonians witnessed and participated in a series of extraordinary events that would not only herald the coming Revolution, but would resonate into the 21st Century. Transcendent Loyalties views those years, from the streets of Boston to the salons of London, from meeting hall to battlefield, through the eyes of Anna Somerset and Daniel Garrett. Having grown up in the household of her Tory uncle, Anna believes herself to be unwaveringly loyal to the king. Her raffish friend Daniel, on the other hand, is drawn toward the firebrand oratory of Samuel Adams and the vision for the future espoused by the Sons of Liberty. Still in their teens in March of 1770, Anna and Daniel believe they have seen the worst as they witness the horrific moment when a regiment of British Regulars fires into a mob of Boston’s citizens. Anna and Daniel cannot know how much more they will experience and endure over the course of the next five years, or that their journey to adulthood will culminate at the bloody fight for control of a hilltop known as Bunker Hill. Nor can they imagine that their journey will be made more perilous by an unsuspected enemy whose jealousy, hatred, and ambition has become all-consuming. For them both, it is a time for making hard choices: A time for deciding who they are. A time for deciding what they want to be. A time for deciding which of their loyalties transcends all others.
