My Dearest Enemy by Jennifer Moore, Blog Tour & Giveaway
Struggling alone on the family farm, Abigail Tidwell knows exactly who to blame for her hardships: the Americans. If it weren’t for their part in the war, her father and brothers would be home rather than fighting abroad. But no amount of antipathy could have prepared her for the shocking sight of a wounded American soldier on her property, a man in dire need of her help. Grudgingly, Abigail tends to the soldier’s injuries and anticipates the satisfaction of turning him over to the authorities once he is healed. But fate has other plans. Captain Emmett Prescott remembers little of the ambush on his men by a group of Shawnee Indians and even less about how he arrived in the unfamiliar barn.
After being nursed back to health by beautiful, if reluctant, Abigail, Emmett would do anything to save the men he left behind—including forcibly enlisting Abigail’s help. Soon, Abigail finds herself caught between two countries at war. And as her attraction for Emmett grows, her conflicted heart engages in its own silent battle. But when she is accused of treason for her actions, her survival rests in the hands of the very man she once considered her enemy.
Moore wastes no time in introducing her main characters and jumping right into the story! Abigail is alone on her family farm while her father and brother are away fighting. And she cannot help but blame the Americans! So when she finds a wounded American soldier in her barn she finds herself in quite the conundrum! What should she do with him? The most distressing part is the fact that he is an American! Her plan for him to heal and then for her to turn him over to authorities doesn't go quite how she thought. You must read it yourself to learn all of the complexities of the relationship and the ups and downs of her life! It was a nice change to read a book from the early 1800s set in a different country than England and to have the war aspect tied into it. I haven't read many books based during the War of 1812, it was a nice change of pace!
