Armistice Day, 1918. Fiercely independent Georgie is tired of being told what’s best for her by men. When she defies her father’s wishes by attending the peace festivities, she tries to help a woman being attacked and there she encounters Patrick, a gallant wounded ex-soldier looking for a new calling now that the fighting is done.
But the war isn’t over for everybody. Enemy forces have infiltrated the Secret Service Bureau and sent her father into hiding. And they are coming for her too. Georgie doesn’t know who she can trust and sees that there’s only one place where she’ll be safe: Honeyfield.
With Patrick in charge of her security detail, can she get to Honeyfield before her father’s enemies find her? And will she be reunited with her father, the only family she has left?
