The Indentured Heart opens another chapter in the compelling saga of the Winslow family. Pre-Revolutionary America was stirring the flames for freedom and the Great Awakening under Jonathan Edwards was renewing a nation's spiritual values.
Adam Winslow, a man of the soil, has different interests and skills than his father and grandfather. But their patriotism and spiritual fervor have left their imprint on his personality.
And far off in England a young beggar girl is about to be given the chance of a lifetime. Molly Burns has lived under the constant terror of her drunken, abusive father, but rescue comes to her doorstep in the person of Adam Winslow. He promises to bring her safely to America on the condition that she become an indentured servant for ten years. Escape from her wretched circumstances and the distant glimmer of freedom in a new land help to make her decision. But this young servant girl had no way to knowing that she would be bound by more than indentureship to the Winslows.
What was the true meaning of freedom to a young girl, to a family, to a nation?
