It's 1775 and the American colonies are on the brink of revolution. Boston is swarming with soldiers, spies, and secrets. Tempers are flaring between the Whigs and the Tories. Fourteen-year-old Hannah Andrews is thrown into the middle of it all when she is driven out of her home by her guardian aunt to work as an indentured servant in the Boston household of Thomas Gage, governor of the colonies and general of the British armies. Soon after Hannah's arrival, the stable boy, Caleb, befriends her and alerts her to the issues faced by Americans under British rule. Hannah dreams of freedom and begins to sympathize with Americans who desire independence from Britain. On the other hand, Hannah has deep respect for the Gage family and affection for her rebellious young mistress, Meg. Hannah soon realizes that Meg is as trapped in her aristocratic life as Hannah is in her own bondage as a servant. Hannah relies on her beloved horse, Promise, to help her through the difficult times. Disguised as a boy on her midnight rides with Promise, Hannah learns on which side her heart belongs. Then, when Hannah overhears a British plot to march on her hometown, she and Promise risk their lives to carry the warning to the town of Salem. Packed with fascinating historical details, real events, and memorable characters, Midnight Rider is historical fiction at its best--guaranteed to thrill Joan Hiatt Harlow's loyal fans as well as those lucky readers who are discovering her for the first time.

DO YOU…HAVE TO GET MARRIED, ADORA BEAUDINE? That's what all the town gossips were asking—and what else could she expect?

Publisher: WestBow Press
The stories in this book are real-life, supernatural experiences in the life of one man. Some of the subjects brought up in relation to those events are sure to be provocative and maybe even to some controversial, but Sonny has taken care to back up from the Bible what he has written, to show that God can do whatever He chooses. The Lord spoke audibly to Sonny in 1974 while he was in jail and not interested in anything spiritual. Sonny had chosen crime as a lifetime career choice, but after literally seeing the light and being body slammed in that jail cell, his life has drastically changed, and the things that have happened in his life since then, to say the least, are very unusual and noteworthy. Although a lot is given to action, thrills and chills, deep and unheard-of subjects are brought to light and examined in detail in the light of the Word of God. Readers can expect inspiration, encouragement, and instruction with adventure, mystery, suspense, and thrills with a few chills.

Paul Revere's ride to warn the colonial militia of the British march on Lexington and Concord is a legendary contribution to the American Revolution. This book reveals another side of this American hero's life, that of a transformational entrepreneur instrumental in the industrial revolution. It combines a biographical examination of Revere with a study of the new nation's business and technological climate. A silversmith prior to the Revolution and heralded for his patriotism during the war, Revere aspired to higher social status within the fledgling United States. To that end, he shifted away from artisan silversmithing toward larger, more involved manufacturing ventures such as ironworking, bronze casting, and copper sheet rolling. The author explores Revere's vibrant career successes and failures, social networks, business practices, and the groundbreaking metallurgical technologies he developed and employed. Revere's commercial ventures epitomized what Martello terms proto—industrialization, a transitional state between craft work and mass manufacture that characterizes the broader, fast -- changing landscape of the American economy.
