Book has different cover to the one shown.

The Rebels is a historical novel written by John Jakes, originally published in 1975, the second in a series known as The Kent Family Chronicles or the American Bicentennial Series. The novel mixes fictional characters with historical events and figures, to narrate the story of the nascent United States of America during the time of the American Revolution. While the novel continues the story of Philip Kent, started in The Bastard, a large portion focuses on Judson Fletcher, a newly introduced character, as a different rebel.

The story begins on June 17, 1775, at the Battle of Bunker Hill, in which Philip Kent participates.

Found this in a second hand bokshop with on holiday in Chiang Mai. I did a swap for a book I was not enjoying - chose this one as I have read the North and South trilogy, which I enjoyed. I am getting a flight to Vietnam tomorrow, will take it with me and release when I have finished.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

A non brain straining read for while on the beach. Jakes is very good at historical novels. I would like to read the next installment but doubt that I ever will. Left on the book pile next to the computer in the hotels reception area.

If you were lucky enough to find this book please journal it to say where you found it, and then what you thought of it.

When you have finished please release it. Keep its journey alive!
