Overview

King George III is dead. With his last dying gasp, he hands his grand daughter Victoria a gift; a gift that will change America's history.

Civil war has erupted in the United States. The nation is weakened by conflict and Queen Victoria seizes the opportunity to act. Victoria will use this war to re-subjugate an unsuspecting America to English rule.

What the Queen does not know, is there are men loyal to England who will stop at nothing to prevent her from destroying English posterity.

These men recruit two Americans who are sworn enemies, but find themselves thrust together unexpectedly. One, a Virginia gentleman serving in the Confederate army, the other, a Union private receive mysterious letters during the Battle of Fredericksburg. These letters compel these two unlikely men to respond to the call for a greater purpose than they currently serve.

This epic story spans from the English countryside to the wild American frontier of the Civil War era. It is full of historical fact melded seamlessly with fictional characters and events.

Full of espionage, action, and romance, Her Majesty's Wishes will take the reader to a intriguing place of "what if" during a revered time in American history.
