Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
This is the second of eight installments of Jakes's ``Kent Family Chronicles,'' a very popular series about the American Revolution written in the 1970s. The story revolves around newly married Philip Kent, a 22-year-old printer from Massachusetts who is serving in the American colonial forces. He is contrasted with Judson Fletcher of Virginia, a dissolute, wealthy tobacco planter's son. Author Jakes spruces up the narrative with vivid battle accounts as well as descriptions of the hardships of soldiers and civilians. The story is narrated by John Maurice, who reads distinctly and very slowly. Public libraries should consider purchasing if the series is still popular with their patrons.-- Susan Mills, Liverpool P.L., N.Y.

I first read this series as a High School student over 30 yrs ago, and loved it. In fact my Dad started reading and loved it also. 30 yrs later I took a chance and found it for my Nook just read the Bastard and can't wait to read the whole series over again.

This had so many great reviews and so I thought I would like it. He can write well, the history is interesting, but the relationships are shallow and selfish. Sex is written about from a very dry, unromantic place with little emotion if any. It seemed like something I was watching instead of experiencing and the decisions made by the characters are at times, ridiculous. I did finish it, but i will not read any of the others.
