City of Promise

In 2002’s City of Dreams, Beverly Swerling looked back to the earliest settlement of Manhattan to frame her engaging multi-generational saga of the Turner family. Her fourth volume brings us to the close of the Civil War as wounded veteran soldier Joshua Turner returns to play a vital role in New York’s transformation into a modern metropolis.  But he must also face a plot connected to a notorious Confederate prison in this sweeping, suspenseful read.
