After discovering surveys with strange riddles, Mary witnesses her papa exchange documents between a patriot neighbor and a known loyalist. She believes Papa is a cowardly traitor, endangering the family.
Internal struggles lead to lost trust and acts of defiance until Mary is faced with a dangerous decision: Loyalty to Papa or loyalty to a cause. Lives are at stake no matter what choice she makes – one, puts hers at risk.
Defiance on Indian Creek transports listeners to the days of the American Revolution to follow the heart-stirring story of young Mary Shirley, who struggles to find her place in a turbulent world.

Listeners will love Mary and worry for her every step of the way. Defiance on Indian Creek is the first book in what will no doubt prove to be as impacting and lasting a series as Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House on the Prairie books.
