1754. In a peaceful glen in the Ohio Country, the firing of a musket ball signals the beginning of the infamous bloody seven- year war that paved the way for the American Revolution. In SHADOWBROOK a cast of unforgettable characters brings to life the bloody conflict between the French and the English that ignited America's quest for independence and the birth of a new nation: Quentin Hale, the fearless gentleman- turned-scout the Indians call 'Red Bear'; Cormac Shea, the part- Irish, part-Indian woodsman scarred in battle by his own kin, sworn to drive white man from his land; and Nicole Crane, a beautiful young woman whose struggle to reconcile her earthly desire for Hale and her chaste calling to the nunnery causes her to become a pawn in the British quest for territory.Centred around Shadowbrook, a prosperous plantation in the northern wilderness, and peopled with characters like a young George Washington, this richly textured tale vividly captures the conflict that marked a turning point in history and the start of an epic battle for freedom. But it is in the powerfully drawn characters, the ordinary men and women living in a world on the brink of extraordinary change, that the story comes alive. A classic in the making, this is a page- turning tale of war and the transforming power of love. This 2004 Bantam Paperback is in Good condition.
