KINGS MOUNTAIN by Florette Henri


Email this review


The famous and decisive revolutionary battle attractively packaged in a light, refreshing, if somewhat simple-minded story of a North Carolina ""irregular"", Captain Reece MacDermott, a golden-haired giant who fervently believed in the patriots' cause, his faithless sweetheart Alice in British-occupied Charlotte, and Sally, a captivating half-Cherokee girl he meets when forced to retreat into the Carolina mountains to recover from a wound. Substantial motion, the tentative mystery which surrounds Sally's origins, believable dialogue make up an historical novel which is superficially superior. It should rent well, sell come.
