Just Jane: A Daughter of England Caught in the Struggle of the American Revolution (Great Episodes) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At what price does independence come? Lady Jane Prentice, orphaned daughter of an English earl, arrives in Charlestown, South Carolina, in 1776, and finds herself plunged into the middle of a heated war--a war not only between her former country and her new home, but also between the members of her own family, whose loyalties are strongly divided in America's fight for freedom.

Torn by family responsibilities, the brutality of war, a secret romance, and her own growing need for independence, Jane is forced to adopt many roles, until she finds the courage to become the person she wants to be: just Jane.

Synopsis:

Romance, history, and warfare abound in this story set in South Carolina during the American Revolution.
