Reading all of the is a must...

I read the Kent Family Chronicles a LONG time ago, but I loved every one of them...I thought they were great for portraying history. I enjoyed the family as they continued through all the books...I may have to re-read them some day

Another fascinating insight into history

I read this book in two days ~~ I couldn't put it down. John Jake focuses on Philip Kent again and this time, introduces a new character, a dissolute drunkard from the Virginian plantation families ~~ Judson Fletcher. Philip is sent to the front to fight while his wife, Anne, stays behind with their son. Judson meanders between his father's plantation, and Philadelphia and Richmond. This book is more intense on the war ~~ describing the conditions of Valley Forge where the men encamped for a bitter winter. They describe more battle scenes that makes you feel like you're right there having a sunstroke with the men. It gives you a glimpse of the hardships these men fought, despaired over and died for. Like Paine said, "These are the times that try a man's soul." It's not exactly a wonderful read but the author wasn't too brutal in describing the wartime scenes. And it's a reminder of what the men of the Revolution fought for. It is a good book ~~ perfect for those long winter nights. If you like history and fiction, this book is among the best combination of the two! 12-20-04

Can't beat the Kent Chronicles

I love this entire series, and The Rebels is where the twists and turns of family fortune shift into high gear (drama?).

awesome, read all 8, the story gets better and better....

you will become part of the kent family-read all 8.


writing a sequel to a best seller is hard for a lot of writers to do well,but John jakes delivers! This book has all the action,richness of historical people,places,events and hot romance as the prior book;but is fresh and exciting. A continuation in the Kent family story worth reading.
