In my opinion no one combines tirelessly researched history and gripping, fast paced fiction like John Jakes.The first book of an 8 book saga featuring the Kent family, this book begins with a teenage Phillip Kent growing up in France with his mother, who runs an Inn that is barely making it cash-flow wise. With drama, humor, romance, adventure and more we follow Phillip as he seeks the truth about his father and embarks on a great adventure for answers hoping to meet his father. I have read the Kent family cronicles twice and have all of Jakes books. I cannot say enough about the complete satisfaction derived from this or any of his novels. I'd give it 6-stars if possible. Just an EXCELLENT READ in all-respects!!

Good start to this historical series

This book is the first in a series by John Jakes, and it is very well written, although a bit slow in spots. Very historically descriptive and many recognizable figures from pre-Revolutionary America
