    With the tumult of the American Revolution as its backdrop, Shaw sets an unlikely story of sacrifice and honor. When Dick Dudgeon—the black sheep of the family—is mistaken for a charismatic minister, he is imprisoned by the Loyalist forces. An ingenious mixture of comedy, adventure, and romance, The Devil’s Disciple asks: who is the saint and who is the sinner? Ages 12+
