Clara in a Time of War, by C.J. McGroarty

In a terrible time of war, one woman must fight for what she holds dear…

Pennsylvania, 1777: As war rages in the American colonies, Clara Fletcher struggles to make do on her Chester County farm while her husband is off in the fight. Lonely in the woods, with no hope of returning to her beloved Philadelphia, she has no other wish than to survive. Then, one morning her son finds a wounded man in the carriage house and her life takes an unexpected turn.

The man is Declan O’Reilly, and as Clara nurses him back to life, she finds in this mysterious stranger a kindred spirit and the welcome spark of love. But day by day the war is moving closer to her door as the British Army embarks on its Philadelphia Campaign. And once Declan O’Reilly moves on, an even bigger threat will loom: a secret Clara hopes to keep hidden as long as she can, a secret that could ruin her.

With its earthy heroine and irresistible love story, Clara in a Time of War will thrill and delight as it takes readers back to a perilous time in American history.
