Elizabeth Howard’s assignment to gain crucial intelligence for General Washington leads her into the very maw of war at the Battle of Brooklyn Heights, where disaster threatens to end the American rebellion. Yet her heart is fixed on Jonathan Carleton, whose whereabouts remain unknown more than a year after he disappeared into the wilderness.


Carleton, now the Shawnee war chief White Eagle, is caught in a bitter war of his own. As unseen forces gather to destroy him, he leads the fight against white settlers encroaching on Shawnee lands while battling the love for Elizabeth that holds his heart captive. Can her love bridge the miles that separate them—and the savage bonds that threaten to tear him forever from her arms?

If you want a Last of the Mohicans type adventure with a hearty dose of romance and realism, buy these books!

“I love this series written by J. M. Hochstetler. I have been waiting eagerly for the next installment. I’d be thrilled if she’d write ten books in this engaging style set in the American Revolution. I’d like to see these books, The American Patriot Series, in the hands of every child in America. I think it should be required reading in every history class in the country. A story so fun and fast paced, with the back ground of Hochstetler’s beautifully researched look at this formative time in our country’s history.

Wind of the Spirit by J.M. Hochstetler is a captivating third installment to the American Patriot series, one that will keep you turning pages and reading far into the night. Filled with intrigue and adventure, love and loss, history and hope, Wind of the Spirit is a refreshingly honest expose of American truth, sparing neither the good, the bad, or the ugly. Raw truth, coupled with gentle mercy, will carry your heart from one scene to the next, leaving you cheering for the “good guys” (on all sides), and panting for more . . . ” —Kathi Macias, author of Deliver Me from Evil


Wind of the Spirit carries you away—literally—to another time and place. The perfect combination of setting and fabulous wording pulled me into the story, and the emotional scenes kept me turning the pages. This story doesn’t drag but keeps building while educating the reader about history at the same time. In regards to sensuality and tension—move over Deeanne Gist—cause Hochstetler goes places most CBA authors can’t. However, the tension is so well done and is so beautifully written, I wouldn’t change a thing. The author shows love as the holy experience it truly is . . . when it occurs the way God intended. I highly recommend this story. I couldn’t put it down.” —Michelle Sutton, author of Letting Go


“J. M. Hochstetler’s Wind of the Spirit is a wonderful continuation of her American Patriot Series. It’s rich in historical detail, packed with action and adventure, and sweetened with a touching, passionate love story. I can’t wait for more!” —DeAnna Julie Dodson, author of In Honor Bound
