Abstract:

The end of the colonies' fight for independence begins a new and glorious battle to build the new nation. When Abraham Kent falls in love with his step-sister he sets in motion a ate that will drive a generation westward -- until Amanda: a girl-child with the heart of a woman, seeks the new frontier that is this land's greatest opportunity--and most awesome dread. The struggles of an emerging new nation are woven into this epic of pioneers settling the West, crass opportunists, and the confrontation of two heirs to the Kent Family's dynasty.
