Overview

August 1789. The Rights of Man.
Liberty. Equality. Idealism. Patriotism.

A new age dawns.

And yet, old hostilities persist: England and Spain are on the brink of war. France, allied by treaty with Spain, readies her warships. Three youths – the son of an English carpenter, the son of a naval captain, and the son of a French court tailor – meet in London, a chance encounter that entwines their lives ever after. The English boys find themselves on the same frigate bound for the Caribbean. The Frenchman sails to Trinidad, where he meets an even more zealous Spanish revolutionary. As diplomats in Europe race to avoid conflict, war threatens to explode in the Caribbean, with the three youths pitted against each other.

Will the dawn of the boys’ young manhood remain bright with hope? Or will it become tainted with their countrymen’s spilled blood?

“…compelling characters and an exciting plot… Much like the Hornblower series, A Tainted Dawn demands sequels. Let’s hope B. N. Peacock is already hard at work on the next volume!”

    B. N. Peacock has done her homework. The descriptions, the dial

    B. N. Peacock has done her homework. The descriptions, the dialogue, the actions all depict the era. As a reader, I became so immersed in this accurate description of late eighteenth century, I felt as I were part of the plot. Anticipating and then being surprised as events unfolded was my reward. So that was life prior to the first, in a series of wars, beginning in 1792? For me, history is, in a sense, biography. In this book, the depiction of the lives of three young men, boys awaiting manhood seems to run parallel to a world awaiting liberty and equality as opposed to the prevalent tyranny and oppression. History personalized; well done.
