Description:

Historical novel covering the broad period from the Revolution to the present day in the story of the Falconbridge family. Anthony I defies his English loving family, joins the rebels, fights British and Indians and starts the legends—Anthony III is shaken out of his sternness by the injustice he has done his son, rights the wrong and is called out of retirement and placid old age to fight for the Falconbridge rights, wins the love and admiration of his two grandchildren and dies with his faith in America unshaken....An inspirational note throughout, as the title implies. Not top-hole Farnol by any means, but clean and wholesome as usual.

Author Image

Jeffery Farnol (10 February 1878 – 9 August 1952) was a British writer since 1907 until his death, known for writing more than 40 romance novels, some formulaic and set in the Georgian Era or English Regency period, and swashbucklers, he with Georgette Heyer founded the Regency romantic genre.

He published his first romance novel My Lady Caprice in 1907. The success of his early novels led Farnol to become a professional writer. He produced around 40 novels and volumes of stories, and some non-fiction and children's books. His last book was completed by his second wife Phyllis.

Two of his early books, The Amateur Gentleman and The Broad Highway, have been issued in a version edited by romance novelist Barbara Cartland. The Amateur Gentleman was adapted for British film in 1920 and 1936, American film in 1926.--Wikipedia.
