BeschreibungWhen John Gentry decided to become a Georgia colonist for the great nation of Britain, he could have never imagined the adventures that would spread out before him. After befriending an orphaned girl during the ship's passage, John finds promise, possibility and the chance to make a name for himself-a far cry from his thievery and single pence lifestyle in London. Author John C. Calhoun takes readers on a timeless adventure in his new novel, Reluctant Empire, with a colorful cast of fictional characters interacting with historical figures such as James Oglethorpe, Mary Musgrove and the brothers John and Charles Wesley in the barely-touched Georgia landscape and settlement of Savannah. As readers follow the daily lives of the colonists, a vivid portrait of early-Georgian life is painted on a mural of freedom, illustrating the life, loss, love and self-discovery that was essential to the founding of this unique and influential colony.
