This is the third book in the House of Winslow series. Morris' "The Indentured Heart" spans the Atlantic Ocean to America to England and then back. The main character is Adam Winslow. The book begins with him as a young boy and then follows him through adulthood and beyond. He is portrayed as a man searching for something. His searching leads him to Enlgand and to Molly Burns, a young girl who has been enslaved in poverty all her life. She has lived a hard life and Adam wants to help her to break free of that kind of inprisonment. Adam offers Molly escape from England to come to America and start a new life, but only if she becomes his indentured servant for ten years. She is then freed from her life of poverty but bound to a different kind of servitude for another ten years. "The Indentured Heart" follows the lives of these two people through a historically changing time in America. Many prominent American historical figures such as Washington and Franklin are active characters in this book.
