In Sparrowhawk Book Three: Caxton, Jack Frake (Book One) and Hugh Kenrick (Book Two) meet in Colonial Virginia, as young men seeking their own fortunes and moral independence.
Jack is a successful planter with a lifetime of experience between the day he was brought to Virginia as an indentured felon and years later when he meets Hugh. Hugh, after completing his education in Philadelphia, decides not to return to England immediately, but to purchase a plantation and turn it into something of his own. Both take extraordinary actions to preserve their lives and fortunes in the turbulent period following the French and Indian War.
In addition to the Sparrowhawk series, Edward Cline is the author of First Prize, a detective novel, and Whisper the Guns, a suspense novel, and has written for a variety of publications including the Colonial Williamsburg Journal and the Marine Corps League. He lives in Yorktown, Virginia.
“This is great historical fiction, full of period detail and historical accuracy to convincingly portray the political struggles between England and her colonies which lead to the American Revolution.”
