Overview

Young, handsome Christian, an English aristocrat, is mysteriously kidnapped and sent to the American Colonies, a new, raw land where he works as an indentured servant and spy. There, renamed Jack Hill, he meets pirates, thieves, cut-throats and villains and gentle Moravians and Quakers. He falls in love with the beautiful and cruel Lisa and the saintly Rebecca. He learns to fight and love equally well. Side by side with the great men and women of American history, he joins heroes of the Revolution here portrayed as real men, including George Washington and Alexander Hamilton, not the flawless statues we have come to expect from Right Wing propaganda. The adventures and passions of a turbulent age come to life in this exciting saga where the central character is the American Revolution.

Meet the Author

Michael Foster, born in Coney Island, Brooklyn, kicked to get out of the womb and ran away from home at age nine months to be returned by a fireman. Since then he has written best-selling adventure novels and well-researched biographies to excite, entertain and inform readers world-wide. While his folks ran a lunch counter with a Murder Incorporated gambling operation in the back room, Michael, the tough kid on the block, read the Russian classics by age 10. He was awarded a full scholarship to Cornell at 16 and Harvard Law at 20. After Harvard, he left to join Che in Cuba and write historical novels, biographies, and erotic history destined to create new ideas and relationships. His books include the Revolutionary War novel Freedom’s Thunder; two biographies of the French woman explorer of Tibet: Forbidden Journey and The Secret Lives of Alexandra David-Neel (called one of the best books ever written by NY Review of Books); and A Dangerous Woman: The Life, Loves and Scandals of Adah Isaacs Menken, the definitive biography of America’s original superstar, a woman of color, Jewish, and a cross-dresser. Three in Love: Menages a Trois from Ancient to Modern Times, has been called “racy and engaging” by Entertainment Weekly.
