Murderous rebels and bigoted gentlemen can't prevent spinster Lady Margaret Brent from wielding her power to defend Maryland
settlers from plunder and obliteration.
Lady Margaret Brent is compelled to right wrongs. Under the rule of Charles I she risks her life by illegally educating English women, placing
her family at risk. She fights to have a voice, yet her own father and brothers exclude her from discussions. Worried the king's men may know
of her illegal activities, she flees to the New World where she can enjoy religious tolerance and own land, believing she will be allowed a voice.
Once in Maryland, she presents cases in provincial court where she's hired as the first American woman attorney. While navigating the amorous
attention of Governor Leonard Calvert Margaret discovers the rebellious actions of other colonists, prompting her to build a fort to shield
those she loves from being murdered. Margaret will need to rely on her integrity and ingenuity to protect the fledgling colony of Maryland
from being destroyed.
