Contrasted with the mischievious Makepeace is the stalwart Esakka, a slave who is saving his coins to purchase his freedom from his kind master, Solomon Seney. Esakka also values his virginity, which the dancing gypsy girl is determined to wrest from him.
Chris Roger, author of the Dixie Flannigan series from Bantam, in her review: "The flavor, the color, the dtails of the 18th century in a page turning story."
LB Cobb, author of Splendor Bay and Promises Town: "A clever, amusing frolic through the brutal realizites of Colonial Ameerica with Makepeace, a rogue of a character you will want to hang one minute and hug the next—-a must read for history buffs and fiction addicts alike."
