Two men - Lance Morley and Adam Bradley - living as lovers in 18th-century America face fear, prejudice, and death. Banished from England and forced to work as indentured servants in colonial Virginia, these men share a secret. They find love, passion, and pleasure on the Ashley Landing plantation, building a life together that's immoral in the eyes of society and criminal in the eyes of the law. Their bond, and the friendships they form with kindred spirits in nearby Williamsburg and far away Philadelphia, help them face down fear, prejudice, and the constant threat that their secret will be exposed. The novel is based on the author's research on indentured servants, plantation life, and homosexuality in colonial Williamsburg.
