This HaBO – or Help a Bitch Out – request comes from Judy, who is seeking an American Revolutionary cross dressing romance:
I am looking for a book I read back sometime in the 1980's. It would have to be published before 1990 at least.
The story took place during the American Revolution and centered around a group of friends. Two of the characters were brother/sister twins. I DO remember that the brother twin (Phillip?) was killed and the sister took his place in his regiment because obviously the revolutionaries weren't very observant.
The H was some kind of officer and occasionally ran into her/him and became suspicious. There was some kind of poem that STILL bothers me to remember about the fate of all the friends.
I specifically remember the line “One got his head bashed in” being in there. Several died obviously. The poem/song was how the H uncovered her “disguise” because he heard her singing it one night around a campfire.
Even though I remember weeping copiously over this book I still want to find it!! No luck on fiction database or I just can't figure out how to work it properly. I thought it was Robyn Carr but nothing matches.
I throw myself on the mercy of the bitchery and apologize for my ghoulish taste but Please Help Me!
First off, there are never any apologies expected or required. Sometimes, ghoulish cross dressing romances must be found. Heck, not sometimes. ALL of the times. Do you recognize this book?
