The Fallon Blood Publisher's Summary

From phenomenally successful fantasy author Robert Jordan (The Wheel of Time) comes The Fallon Blood, a splendid story of the American Revolution, now for the first time in audiobook format. 

In 1765, Michael Fallon, an Irishman on the run from brutal English overlords, makes his way to Charleston, South Carolina, as an indentured servant. Bound over to Thomas Carver, a successful merchant, he quickly shows a knack for trade - and a disturbing attraction to Carver's beautiful, sensual daughter, Elizabeth. With luck and intelligence - and not without bloodshed - he rises into the rice-planting aristocracy of the Carolina Lowcountry, where a frontier spirit pulses beneath the superficial trappings of an agrarian society that is heading rapidly toward revolution.  

Michael Fallon hopes for peace. But the winds of war are rising, and the planter must become a privateer....

And the early dalliance with Elizabeth leaves a bitter aftertaste....  

This audiobook follows the less familiar Southern course of the war, including the battles of Cowpens, King's Mountain, and Eutaw Springs (the bloodiest battle on the continent until Shiloh); and brings onto center stage such notables as Ben Franklin, Cornwallis, the Swamp Fox Francis Marion, the British Colonel "Butcher" tarleton, Colonel William Moultrie, the Marquis de Lafayette - and a true cast of thousands!

    Like his father before him, Robert Fallon finds his destiny is also twisted around a double-edged fate, which will mark him for life - the unbearable attraction of forbidden love and the seductive call of war. As Captain of the Osprey, he has sailed the globe to avoid the woman he should not desire. But the rumblings of war are once again echoing across a struggling young nation and Robert must return to South Carolina. Waiting for him is the War of 1812. The British are attempting to reclaim the Colonies and the White House is in flames.

    Well past his prime, Robert Fallon now fights the battles of politics to save the country he cherishes from civil war. It is 1832, and the high tariffs that protect northern industry are crippling the South. President Andrew Jackson thinks force is the answer to the South's threats of secession. Robert must pay a final-hour visit to Washington, as an appeal to Jackson and Congress to pass a compromise tariff before the country is torn apart.
