Blood brothers Jacob and Eli could become sworn enemies when Eli joins the American invasion of Canada. After avoiding the gallows and fleeing to the United States, Eli returns to Newark when the American Army attacks Fort George. If he is captured again, he will hang, but his return exposes Jacob to possible charges of treason as well-for helping Eli escape. Two people learn their secret: their two enemies, William and Henry. Eli has scores to settle with them. Can he silence them forever -with pistols at dawn? Set in the battles of Stoney Creek and Beaver Dams -a period when Canada came closest to losing the War of 1812.

Friend or villain? Brother or traitor? This compelling story of wartime friendship brings the looming War of 1812 to dramatic life. Jacob is a steadfast Loyalist. Eli is a newcomer to Upper Canada, whose family has just moved from the American South. The two boys become fast friends, but their friendship is tested when Eli's father refuses to pledge allegiance to the Crown. As Loyalists in Upper Canada become more and more suspicious of those with American leanings, the looming war threatens to pull the boys - and their town - apart. Peopled with key figures from the War of 1812, such as General Isaac Brock and newspaperman-turned-traitor Joseph Willcocks, Brothers at War portrays the tense era just before the War of 1812, which pitted neighbour against neighbour as Upper Canada prepared to fend off invading American forces.

The sequel to Brothers at War finds best friends Jacob and Eli on opposite sides of the battlefield as the War of 1812 erupts. Jacob and Eli may be blood brothers, but they are on opposite sides in the battle of Queenston Heights during the War of 1812. While Jacob joins John Norton's Mohawk band fighting with the British-Canadian side, Eli fights with the Americans. The Canadians win the day, but the victory comes at a great cost: the death of General Brock. Eli is captured and jailed. Because he swore the oath of allegiance to the Crown before he left Canada, his return with the invaders makes him a traitor. He is charged with high treason - a hanging offence. Can Jacob save his friend from the gallows?
