Capture and Redemption: Third in a Series of Novels of the French and Indian War


Trying to keep the threat of the French and their Indian allies from encroaching on New England, Charles Nurse volunteers for his third tour of duty. He marches forth from his home in Amesbury, leaving his new wife who is with child and hoping this will be the final year of the war. The year 1757 proves to be an embarrassment to the British forces along the Lake George/Lake Champlain Corridor in upper New York Colony. Charles, for the third year, is stationed at the base of Lake George, now the enlarging fortress of Fort William Henry. He is an eyewitness to the attack, surrender and massacre of the fort. Taken captive by the Ottawa, Charles is hustled North and West to the tribal villages deep in French territory known today as Michigan. Charles is subjected to atrocities at the hands of his enemies and forced to do things a New England man had never thought of. Will Charles return to Massachusetts and his new family? Can he survive CAPTURE; will he require REDEMPTION for his deeds?
