Review: The Maid-at-Arms by Robert W. Chambers

Synopsis: George Ormond leaves his plantation in Florida and travels to his distant relatives in the North. There, he finds them facing the Colonies rebellion against the Crown and the possible massacre by the Native Tribes. He also find his true love, only to hear she is engaged to another. Ormond joins with others to face the Tribes and find his place in war.

Review: Written and published in 1902, this is a wonderful fictional account of a small bite of a the Revoultionary War. Sweet romance, elegant prose, daring action and mystery make this an excellent novel. If you enjoy older books, I highly recommend.
