The Renards of Boston live a charmed life in the bustling harbor town. The eldest daughter, Deborah, a beauty from the North Square, could have any beau of her choosing but pines for only one, the handsome Andrew. Together they take advantage of any opportunity to enter into each other's embrace: a lavish ball, a crowded choir loft, even a darkened corner of his mother's cafe. Now her father's approval must be sought. Her papa, Daniel is justifiably proud of his silversmith business, which he operates with Deborah's twin, David. They see themselves as patriots, attending Sons Of Liberty meetings at night. And naively Daniel feels the liberty they seek from the British Crown can be sought diplomatically without the bloodshed a revolution would usually produce. When an unruly mob boards three British vessels and pours their cargo into the harbor, the town wakes up one morning to find English war vessels drawing into their harbor. And they soon learn that the liberty they long for will not be earned without bringing their lovely town to the brink of destruction.
