A new world aflame with the bonfire of a budding revolution..
In 1775 two fugitives, one black the other white, from a penal colony in Barbados get ensnared in the maw of the American Revolution, on opposite sides.Face to face at the battle of Kings Mountain, they must decide whether loyalty to a cause or to each other determines who lives or dies.
Kings Mountain is an enthralling read that captivated me from the very first chapter. Author Seamus Beirne has crafted an narrative that examines the complexities of morality and friendship that can be torn asunder by war, race and the necessity to pick sides.
Well written and very readable, this is an adventure that will live long in memory.-- Grant Leishman--Readers' Favorite
