Last Refuge of Scoundrels is the story of John Lawrence, a naive young merchant's son who finds love and his life's purpose in the force of nature that is Deborah Simpson, a prostitute who leads an unsung army of cooks, washer women, jacktars, and fishermen into the fray. Secretly embraced by George Washington, these ordinary heroes prove to be the commander-in-chief's key to victory and the inspiration for his metamorphosis from careerist aristocrat to father of his country - more a man of the people than his peers would ever know.
