BLIND FAITH: THE GAUNTLET RUNNER BOOK VI by S. Thomas Bailey, a powerful historical fiction novel

After the latest demoralizing battle defeat, Jacob's compassion and disgust rises when he sees the pathos caused by inept British Officers. He agonizes over his dilemma–stay and fight–or desert his men, including his son, to try to find his beloved wife, presumably lost to the north while searching for their child in mid-1700s wilderness of North America.
