This is a different kind of American history book because it imagines what it would have been like if the Americans had lost the Revolution. Wastrel son, fifteen-year-old Creighton is kidnapped and taken to the Americas to live with his uncle, Colonel Gower. One adventure after another befalls Creighton, and he eventually agrees to spy for Benedict Arnold. Slowly, Creighton begins to sort out his feelings, his values and the reality of what's going on around him. Should he betray the Americans? What is true virtue? What's the value of duty or honor or morality? Or even of life itself? 260 pages Ages 13 and up
