1790: �At the�Battle of �Waxhaw, NC, the British Legion massacres the unresisting soldiers of�of the Virginia Regiment instead of accepting their surrender. �In the aftermath, colonists�ordinary men and women,� farmers, shopkeepers, and back woodsmen�come together in secret at an abandoned Spanish mission, renaming it Patriot�s Point. There they organize themselves into a fighting force, vowing to contain the British advance at all cost until the Continental Army can retaliate. Fewer than two hundred men stand in defiance of over five thousand British soldiers: two hundred patriots, who understand that freedom is not free. ��
"Patriot�s Point takes the reader from the innocence of desire through the blood of need in this fast-paced historic masterpiece. It won�t take you long to realize that bravery does not only belong to the characters in Boren�s saga: you may find your own sense of liberty stands to benefit. A timely reminder, to be sure."���Dinah Roseberry, author of The Ghosts of Valley Forge and Phoenixville

About the Author

Douglas Boren has lived a full and exciting life. A retired Physician�s Assistant, he has lived from Alaska to Florida, from New York to New Mexico, and many places in between. An avid Master scuba diver, he divides his time between the Caribbean and his home in North Carolina. He has always had a profound fondness for history, believing that rather than just a series of dates and events, it is a living record of real people, much like ourselves, how they live, and their impact on those around them and their role in the unfolding story of life.�
Towards that end, his writings have focused on a particular family through the generations. He informally calls them the Alexander Family Chronicles. From 1600's England, to 1700's Caribbean, to the American Revolution, to the American Civil War, right on up to present day, you can follow the exploits of these remarkable men and women as they face their unique challenges and overcome incredible odds. Patriot�s Point is his fourth novel.
