Bird of the Night

All Rights Reserved ©


Allie's family is traveling from their home in England to the colonies for a "vacation" of sorts- right in the middle of the Revolutionary War. When they get there, a series of events leads to Chandler, Allie's father, discovering her secret. The patriot Nightingale? It's his daughter. Updated every Sunday, most chapters are about 1,000 words but there are variations in length.

Character List (in order of appearance)

This list is to simply assist you as you’re reading. The prologue starts in the next “chapter”, and Chapter 1 starts after that. Bird of the Night will be updated with another chapter every Sunday to slow the pace and give me time to write future chapters as I’m trying to balance classes at uni.
