From a #1 New York Times–bestselling author: Amanda Kent heads west to build a family dynasty in the era of the Gold Rush.
Opening twenty-two years after the events of The Seekers, John Jakes’s fourth Kent Family novel spans the blood-soaked era of America’s relentless expansion into the West. Amanda Kent, daughter of Gilbert Kent and Harriet Lebow, is one of the few women to escape the massacre at the Battle of the Alamo. Uncommonly brazen and focused, Amanda seeks to make a new life for herself by restoring the Kent family name. Her efforts to build a dynasty take her to northern California, just in time for the Gold Rush. Her passion and determination during these frenzied years make The Furies an exhilarating page-turner. This ebook features an illustrated biography of John Jakes including rare images from the author’s personal collection.
Unlike his earlier works in this series, this particular book is rambling pontification, with very little of the action and fast paced narrative we expect.... A real struggle to get through this one.
