Sarah crosses enemy lines on a top secret deception operation for General George Washington. Based on actual events.
"I have never been afraid of man or beast, Major Brooks. I can easily do this, trust me " Sarah declared.
"But Sarah, we don't even have a plan for how exactly you would deliver this message directly into General Howe's hands " said Brooks.
Sarah paused to think and then boldly asserted, "Then I will have to make it up as I go, depending on what's going on when I get to the British camp."
Sarah's life in 18th century Massachusetts was adventurous from beginning to end. Not long after Sarah married her best friend, John, Britain's oppression in Boston came to a boiling point. She and John responded by joining forces with other Patriots who wanted freedom from England.
In 1775, General Washington arrived in Boston to lead the newly formed Continental Army against the British. Knowing it would be nearly impossible to push the redcoats out of Boston, Washington devised a plan. He would need a courageous courier. That search led the general to John. But when something unexpected happens on the night of the secret mission, Sarah volunteers to cross enemy lines in John's place.
