Summary

Katherine Heaton, a young patriot woman, stares into the eyes of the Redcoat officer standing over her father's lifeless body. Stunned at what she has just witnessed, there is nothing she can do when the soldiers haul her brother away for hanging a British Stamp Agent. Devoted to her brother, and the cause, she will help him fight for independence. 
Captain Jeremy Burke, an officer in the King's army, arrives in the New World and discovers the colonies have an elegant simplicity that surprises him, especially the beautiful Heaton woman. He has never had a problem with self-discipline, until now. 
Reviews: 
"The Quartering Act is a one of a kind novel. Very few books are based in the American Revolution and Ms. Baker captures the spirit perfectly. This novel is a great story of love and bravery and I enjoyed it immensely."  Bonnie from Coffee Time Romance 
"Ms. Baker dies a masterful job weaving the major conflicts around Boston so familiar from our history books. She twists the plot pulling the lovers away for a huge break in time allowing both to move toward other facets of their life."  Reviewed by Bluebell of the Long and the Short of It.

    Five years in a New York state reformatory have left a blemish on Hazel's real name. So when she takes a job as Doctor Gilbert Watts's lady in attendance in 1898, she does so under an alias. In the presence of her quiet and pious employer, Hazel finds more than an income. She finds a friend and a hope that if she can set her tarnished past in order, she might have a future after all. 
     
    As Gilbert becomes accustomed to the pleasant chatter of his new dental assistant, he can't help but sense something secretive about her. Perhaps there is more to this woman than meets the eye. Can the questions that loom between them ever be answered? Or will the deeds of days gone by forever rob the future of its possibilities? 
     
    Rachel Fordham pens a tender tale of a soft-spoken man, a hardened woman, and the friends that stand by them as they work toward a common purpose--to expunge the record of someone society deemed beyond saving--and perhaps find love along the way.
