Two decades after the Civil War, first-generation Irish American
Zachary O’Hara, son of a legendary Marine and a force of a man in his own
right, finds himself playing a critical role as the very existence of the
Marine Corps is being decided. If he can help persuade the Secretary of the
Navy that the Marines will be crucial to America’s security in years to come,
he’ll save the Corps and make his career.
But a dark secret
weighs heavily on this tormented, dedicated warrior, and the greatest obstacle
to his mission is one he never anticipated: Amanda Blanton Kerr, the
passionate, obstinate daughter of the ruthless industrialist who happens to be
the Corps’s fiercest adversary. A beautiful heiress on a mission of her own,
her destiny will intertwine with O’Hara’s in the tumultuous decades to follow, forcing
him to confront the devastating choice no soldier should ever have to make:
between his duty and his desire—and between his country and his heart.
