The American Revolution saw thousands of loyalist families flee north to Canada to start a new life. The Loxley family settled near Queenston, building a family home and farm, far from the conflict and persecution they experienced being on the losing side of America's quest for political freedom. Now, with American polititians looking to ignite hostilities with Britain once more, the Loxleys find themselves on the front line of another war that again pits friend and neighbour against each other. With their men enlisting in the Canadian militia, it is left to the Loxley women to keep the family together and the farm producing enough food for their survival through the tough winters. The war will pass through their home as renegade soldiers raid along the border, stripping families of their possessions and burning houses to the ground. The political manoeuverings of those in power is, as always, felt most by the ordinary folk on both sides as the inevitable victims of war.
