Elswyth Thane - Dawn's Early Light
Dawn's Early Light
Suddenly, they were at war. The leaders of the young colonies had taken their stand and Williamsburg would fight or fall with its allies. St. John Sprague, the handsome aristocrat, was quick to take up arms. Sadly he said good-bye to Regina - the haughty Virginia beauty he had always loved - knowing she might not wait. Julian Day, St. John's best friend, found his loyalties torn between the fledgling colonies and the English crown. He stayed behind, trying to smother his own love for the irresistible Regina, unaware that the lovely girl Tibby had given her heart to him wholly, knowing that his day of battle must come soon...
This is the first and best in Thane's famous "Williamsburg" series of historical fiction. Focuses on the Williamsburg inhabitants whose lives are caught up in the tumult, intrigue, and violence of the Revolutionary War.
