Description

The conclusion of the epic historical family saga from the #1 New York Times–bestselling author and "superb storyteller" (The Columbus Dispatch).

In the final installment of the Kent Family Chronicles, the remaining Kents seek to fulfill Philip Kent's original American dream. As Gideon Kent's health deteriorates, he fears for the future of his family. Their dynasty, now in ruins, stands as a tarnished symbol of all the Kents have lost in the unstable years of war and expansion. It falls to young Will to bring the family together—a task of epic scope. Only expert storyteller John Jakes could craft such a gripping finale to this beloved family saga, bringing the Kents' drama—and the nineteenth century in America—to its riveting conclusion.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of John Jakes including rare images from the author's personal collection.
