Free Men And Dreamers Vol. II: Twilight's Last Gleaming
Free Men And Dreamers Vol. II: Twilight's Last Gleaming by L.C. Lewis
In this second volume of Laurie's magnificent story of Our beautiful Country and the courage and bravery of a few families looking to God to help protect a young America, we also find treachery thwarting Jed and Hannah's every footsteps. With the British coming closer to The Willows, Jed's home, and where a traitor lingers to ruin Jed's life and all he holds dear, he turns to God where he finds the answers to his troubles. While Jed agonizes over where Hannah and her sister Beatrice are, they are attempting to get to Stephen Mack's home in Tunbridge, Vermont and wind up battling a Typhoid epidemic.
While the Earl of Whittington tries to protect his young son from traitors, a kidnapping is prevented, but a murder ensues, causing more heartache and blame. A family secret that connects Jed with a British family causes more heartache for Jed and his sister Frannie, when a stranger is caught on Willows land by Frannie. When she and Jed learn of his identity, she feels betrayed, but Jed feels relieved. When Jed's friend and overseer of his plantation, Marcus O'Malley, leaves to go see his family he hasn't seen in years, he stays, finds the love of his life in a young blind woman and helps repair a ship to fight the British. Beatrice has decided to go to Canada to see about her husband's release from prison, but is waylaid. Dudley has turned to God and is helped by a woman in bringing books of poetry to him, then is sent to another prison in Nova Scotia.
In the last paragraph of this volume, Jed sums up what we as an American people need to understand and that if we don't look to Heaven, we won't understand God's plan for this great Country.
