A tale of our nation's youth, of passions, a half forgotten war and incomparable men and women. Splendidly researched and finely written.

As a huge fan of historical fiction, I usually set pretty high standards for any historical fiction novel I come across! This one passed! It was great. I didn't know much about the War of 1812 before reading this book. Very enjoyable and informative read!

Fabulous book, so well written. I enjoyed every page of it and learned so much American history in the process. I had always thought the Star Spangled Banner was written during the Revolutionary War not the war of 1812! Andrew and Rachel Jackson are characters to love and admire, as well as James and Dolley Madison. Niven sticks to the historical facts and is true to the character and personality of the various individuals. A really good book. I'm going to request some other titles by Nevin.
