Young Jabez Coventry, caught in the whirlwind of the American Revolution, must decide. When he does, the choice leads to more adventure, danger - and romance - than he could ever have believed. Excitement builds on every page of this authentic historical novel set against the background of the birth of a nation.Meticulously researched, Jockey Hollow does more than follow the course of battles. Woven into the plot are the stories of the common folk who really lived the Revolution. We meet slaves, indentured servants, persecuted loyalists, Quakers sacrificing all for neutrality, women camp followers, soldiers who suffer more from hunger than from the enemy, honest folk who must make heartbreaking decisions of conscience.As Young Adults (and adults of all ages) immerse themselves into the Revolutionary era, they learn that even after 9/11 our country has survived worse periods and survived. This is a page-turner that focuses on the real lives and loves or young men and women. It delivers both real entertainment and real history.
