Abstract:

The definitive volume in Jakes & rsquo;s bestselling series finds the Kent family reaching to finally embrace its legacy & mdash;and its future In the final installment of the Kent Family Chronicles, the remaining Kents seek to fulfill Philip Kent & rsquo;s original American dream. As Gideon Kent & rsquo;s health deteriorates, he fears for the future of his family. Their dynasty, now in ruins, stands as a tarnished symbol of all the Kents have lost in the unstable years of war and expansion. It falls to young Will to bring the family together & mdash;a task of epic scope. Only expert storyteller John Jakes could craft such a gripping finale to this beloved family saga, bringing the Kents & rsquo; drama & mdash;and the nineteenth century in America & mdash;to its riveting conclusion. This ebook features an illustrated biography of John Jakes including rare images from the author & rsquo;s personal collection.
