Hope Forrester is a history loving 17 year old who loves life itself during the year 2012. Its Spring Break for Hope during her Senior Year and everything seems to be going perfect! That is until a car accident sends her into a very... historical situation, the 1770s. Hope doesn't know how or why but it seems she's stuck, and this all happens after finding out a movie she loves, The Patriot, is the real deal.
After Benjamin Martin takes her under his wing as his own child and her bi-racial background making it easy to fit in amongst everyone on the plantation, she thinks this might be better than 2012. That is until Charleston, South Carolina falls to the British. What makes her world turn upside down even more is rebelling against a man who causes her very emotions to be put right onto the battlefield. Hope must battle her feelings that grow for Col. Tavington during her "stay" at a British fort in the Carolinas' where Cornwallis resides. But will she have the power to change the Colonel's horrid ways and bring light to his dark heart, or will Hope have to pay the ultimate price to the man nicknamed 'The Butcher' at their delicate fiber of love?
