Life was good for the Holmes family, and they didn't want to see the British colonies engage in rebellion, especially against the most powerful empire in the world. But as the unrest grew, many men loyal to the King looked at enlistment to put down the uprising. They thought if they enlisted in the spring, after planting season, they could help suppress the revolt in time for the fall harvest. They thought it would be that simple.
Above the Glebe follows a farming family as the American Revolutionary War drags on. It is the story of loyalty and vengeance, of death and survival. It is also the story of a family divided. On the one side are the five Holmes brothers, who enlist on the Loyalist side. On the other are a vindictive cousin and the two Holmes sisters, both married to revolutionaries. Their choices will have a marked impact on their lives and their futures. Above all, though, this is a story of a family and its strength.
