Williamsburg Daughter

The year 1898 ushered in a time of tension between the United States and Spain, fueled by the yellow journalism of newspapers owned by Hearst and Pulitzer. The United States declared war, and thousands of angry volunteers joined up to exact revenge for the bombing of an American battleship.

The last decade of the nineteenth century was also a time when individual women were making accomplishments in previously male-dominated vocations. The Daughters of the American Revolution organized women who wanted to make their communities better. And yet, the bulk of American society still felt a woman's place was in the home. Though women could own property and could inherit wealth, married women were considered an appendage of their husbands, making their economic resources the property of their husbands.

But immense changes were brewing in technology, communications, and power. It is within this dynamic period that Jessica Calhoun and Stephen McCormack literally collide with one another, and the chemistry that ignites between them propels them into a whirlwind romance, punctuated with danger.
