As the War of 1812 rages on between England and America, another war is waged in the streets of Baltimore. Caleb Smith is thrilled to learn that his longtime friend and love interest, Libby Anderson, returned from England. However, Caleb learns that Libby is betrothed to British aristocrat Harold Edgerton III through an arranged marriage by her parents. In spite of Caleb’s and Libby’s desire to be together, foul play, old-world traditions, and war all conspire to keep them apart. Both the fortunes of a country and a young couple are intertwined. Their destinies hinge on the outcome of the Battle of Baltimore.
