Publisher's Summary

Based on the true-life adventures of the charming Swiss nobleman Baron Christoph de Graffenried, (ancestor to former First Lady Laura Bush and author Ellen Glasgow), and his founding of New Bern, the second oldest town in North Carolina, in 1710, Knight of the Purple Ribbon is filled with drama, romance, and suspense. Penned by his descendant, Jennifer Leigh Wells, this sweeping historic novel follows de Graffenried as he goes from being the reckless black sheep of his illustrious family to the head of a colonial settlement, carved out of the wilderness, with his beautiful, spirited bride at his side, whose love sustains him though the struggles and hardships. Set against the backdrop of such monumental events as Cary's Rebellion and the Tuscarora War, this amazing journey transports the listener from the castles of Switzerland to the decadent British court to the wilds of the New World.
