As the British Crown plans to exact its Stamp Tax on the North American colonies, Hugh Kenrick, Jack Frake, and their friends in Caxton, Virginia, plot to foil the arrival of the hated stamps in the colony. Edgar Cullis and George Mercer, also Virginians, however, scheme to switch sides. Reverdy Brune returns to Hugh's life, and Etáin, Jack's wife, acquires a new friend. Dogmael Jones and Baron Garnet Kenrick join in the debates in Parliament over repeal of the disastrous law; Jones delivers his finest speech in the name of liberty.
