"'Swallow, daughter, pull them in, those words that sit upon your lips. Lock them deep inside your soul, hide them 'til they've time to grow. Close your mouth upon the power, curse not, cure not, 'til the hour. You won't speak and you won't tell, you won't call on heaven or hell. You will learn and you will thrive. Silence, daughter. Stay alive.' The day my mother was killed, she told my father I wouldn't speak again, and she told him if I died, he would die too. Then she predicted the king would trade his soul and lose his son to the sky. My father has a claim to the throne, and he is waiting in the shadows for all of my mother's words to come to pass. He wants desperately to be king, and I just want to be free. But freedom will require escape, and I'm a prisoner of my mother's curse and my father's greed. I can't speak or make a sound, and I can't wield a sword or beguile a king. In a land purged of enchantment, love might be the only magic left, and who could ever love ... a bird?"--Back cover.

British Colonel Patrick Ferguson and an American buckskin army had a date with destiny at Kings Mountain, North Carolina on October 7, 1780. This novel is about the men and women who fought at Kings Mountain and the events that brought them there. The Sword of the Lord is the story of American Patriots Isaac Shelby and John Sevier, who organized and financed the buckskin army that fought against the British at Kings Mountain; the novel is also the story of Patrick Ferguson, who traveled the uplands of Georgia and the Carolinas in 1780 as the King's charismatic recruiter of American hill people to the British standard. Ferguson was accompanied by two mistresses, Virginia Sal and Virginia Paul, who traveled with him and fought beside him. The Battle of Kings Mountain was a critical battle that sealed the fate of the British Army in the south, and paved the way for the surrender of Cornwallis at Yorktown in October, 1781.
