As Gideon Kent’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 - a task of epic scope. Only expert storyteller John Jakes could craft such a gripping finale to this beloved family saga, bringing the Kents’ drama - and the nineteenth century in America - to its riveting conclusion.

Great series. Hats off to the author. Excellent job. I feel as if I am a part of the Kent family. I wish there were more books as I do not know what to do with my time now!!
Possibly the best of the series. Wondering when the next book will be available! Can't wait to hear more of the Kent family.
Happy to read mysteries, like the action too!
A great listen. taking the listener through the years if American history through the lives of the Kent family & their brushes with the American story.
I've done all of the Kent Chronicles. What I've learned is American history. Jon Jakes has an amazing knowledge of history. I listened and learned. However, the breasts, please, all the men notice the breasts. I say, "get over it". A question I'd like to ask is why is every main character a physical fighter. Regardless, it's a good series. Put your headphones on and do some housework or gardening. It's a great time filler.
