John Wentworth had made his mark as Governor of New Hampshire just before the American Revolution, in spite of growing colonial ferment over British rule--and in spite of his young and restless wife. But then the Revolution exploded into mob violence, and the Governor was forced to flee to England. In the fashionable whirl of London, with its court intrigues and political fortune grabbers, it became evident to all but John that his wife was gambling with his future for her own ends. But it was not until he was sent to a post in Nova Scotia that his wife's designs came clear. There, Frances Wentworth was to employ all her seductive charm to its limits.--From publisher description

"This stirring historical novel is set in Nova Scotia during the English/French rivalry over the possession of North America. Roger Sudden, a cynical and impoverished young English aristocrat in the service of Bonnie Prince Charlie, sees this struggle as an opportunity to find wealth and power in the New World and arrives with the first settlers of Halifax. With determination and fortitude, Sudden becomes one of the richest and most ruthless traders in the colonies, but his fate and fortunes are linked with John Foy, a rich gentleman on mysterious business in Halifax, and his beautiful wife, Mary. Trading with both the English and the French, Roger’s fate takes a bitter twist as he becomes embroiled in the bitter conflict between Halifax and Louisbourg for control of the northern continent. Roger Sudden, first published in 1944, is a superb combination of history, adventure, and emotional conflict. Available now in a new Nimbus Classics edition."--
