The spy is a fiercely independent young woman who races time and traitors to uncover a plot that threatens the new nation. Recently widowed, Rebecca Parcell is too busy struggling to maintain her farm in Morristown to care who wins the War for Independence. But rumors are spreading that she’s a Loyalist sympathizer who betrayed her husband to the British—quite a tidy way to end her disastrous marriage, the village gossips whisper.

Everyone knows that her husband was a Patriot, a hero who died aboard a British prison ship moored in New York Harbor. But “everyone” is wrong. Parcell was a British spy, and General Washington - who spent two winters in Morristown - can prove it. He swears he’ll safeguard Becca’s farm if she unravels her husband’s secrets. With a mob ready to exile her or worse, it’s an offer she can’t refuse.

Escaped British prisoner of war Daniel Alloway was the last person to see Becca’s husband alive, and Washington throws this unlikely couple together on an espionage mission to British-occupied New York City. Moving from glittering balls to an underworld of brothels and prisons, Becca and Daniel uncover a plot that threatens the new country’s future. But will they move quickly enough to warn General Washington? And can Becca, who’s lost almost everyone she loves, fight her growing attraction to Daniel, a man who always moves on?

Mally Becker began her career in New York City as a publicist and freelance magazine writer, then moved on, working as an attorney for more than 20 years and then as an advocate for children in foster care. She and her husband raised their son in Warren Township, where they still live.
She thought she’d be clearing trails when she volunteered at the Morristown National Historical Park but found herself, instead, sifting through the Park’s archival collection of letters. That’s where she found a copy of an indictment for the Revolutionary War crime of traveling from New Jersey to New York City “without permission or passport,” which became the spark for "The Turncoat’s Widow," her first novel.
