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.
