AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A woman at war with authority and a man at war with himself defy their king to fight for freedom.

'Young, rebellious Viviane de Chercy reaches Paris in 1776, determined to join a band of aristocrats who are plotting to throw themselves into the American War of Independence. But when she stows away on a ship carrying La Fayette and his followers to war-torn Pennsylvania, she sails headlong into a passionate struggle with her nemesis, the man she fled France to escape—Jules, Comte de Mirandol, who has joined the Virginia Riflemen to fight for the same cause.

'As the battles rage, Viviane overhears a plan that could turn the tide of British onslaughts against General Washington’s Continentals. Armed with only a pistol and her courage, she takes the fate of Philadelphia in her hands.

'Interweaving the birth of a nation with the destiny of two outsiders, REBEL is a vivid portrait of the first great affair between America and France—a story of love and war.'
