In 1777, seventeen-year-old Roland McCaffrey joins the American Revolution. He is part of the army trying to stop the invasion force of British general John Burgoyne. Fighting alongside his sergeant and mentor, Roland becomes a skilled rifleman.
He feels guilty for killing but plays an important role in the American strategy. At the Battles of Saratoga, Roland engages in combat under Benedict Arnold.
This historical fiction novel is perfect for any American history fan, more specifically, the Revolutionary War.
Our main characters are not heroes nor are they evil-eyed killers. Roland and Caleb are just normal soldiers caught in the middle of a dangerous battle doing what they can for their country.
The Ghosts of Saratoga will not only entertain but also educate the reader on how untrained American patriots could defeat the highly trained British army. You’ll get an insightful look on what it was like to be on the battlefield and gain insights into this chapter of American history.
One winner will receive a $10 Amazon GC, International.Ten winners will win signed bookmarks, International.
