Epic adventure and surging romance of the proud, passionate men and women who made our nation.
Book 1 of the Kent Family Chronicles. Exciting and well written, the story of the illegitimate son of the Duke of Kentland who travels to America, changes his name, works in a printing house and becomes embroiled in the Revolutionary War.
A Painless way to learn about history; I couldn't put it down!
vol 1 in the Kent family, it is very good
This is the first book of The Kent Family Chronicles. It begins in England and follows the young illegitimate Phillipe Charboneau from his emmigration from there to America, where he changes his name to Philip Kent. This novel takes him to the point of becoming a soldier in the Revolutionary War. This historical novel is accurate and fast moving. I enjoyed it very much.
Excellent book! I love this series by John Jakes. Almost better than his North and South book. This book has a small rip on the back cover, but other than that, it is in good shape.
I love this book. I read it years ago when it first came out, and I'm enjoying reading it again. Vivid detail, history, romance... what's not to love?
Excellent historical fiction--Volume I of American Bicentennial Series
This is not the most original plot and the love scenes are very 1970s, but where this book really shines is the author's use of true historical figures as characters -- people like Ben Franklin, Paul Revere and Samuel Adams come alive through the story.
This is the 1st book in an excellent fictional series of American history.
I ordered this book to replace one of the set that I loaned to someone and never received back. I plan to re-read the entire series one day soon.
First in the series and my favorite.
This one's been read many times, yellow pages from years on the shelves, not watermark damage but handling/shelf wear. Binding/spine tight, pages clean.
