Beginning with the ragged Continentals waiting for the British charge on Breed's Hill, and sweeping across the luminous fabric of our nation's earliest, war-torn years, THE REBELS chronicles the continuing adventures of Philip Kent.
It captures the valor and turmoil of the revolution as seen by one of its participants. A warrior and patriot, inspired by men of vision, driven also by personal desires, Kent creates his own destiny out of the sweeping drama of the American war for independence.
Book #60 was The Rebels, the second book in John Jakes’s Kent Family Chronicles.
I enjoy Jakes’ books immensely. I especially like this series because it’s an era I haven’t read a whole lot about. The only problem was, in between the first book in the series and this one, I read North and South. I had to re-establish the characters in my head all over again.
