After writing Sure Signs: Stories Behind the Historical Markers of Central New York, Howard Ford wrote Some Call it Treason, a novel about a young English couple and their friend who, together, visited the American colonies and joined the rebels just before the Revolution. The second book in the series, In All Cases Whatsoever, released in 2012, reflects the unwavering arrogance of the English government, an attitude largely responsible for the war. Those who fought the Revolution, whether soldier or spy, were not only brave, but cunning and resourceful, and worthy of our attention for their fortitude. A Just Cause is the third and final book in this exciting historical fiction trilogy. Ford is retired from the financial services industry. He and his wife, Ann, live in upstate New York.
