Before the Restoration -- There Was The Revolution

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- The summer of 1777 was a difficult one for General George Washington and his poorly equiped and undisciplined Continental Army. With a force just half the size of the British Army, Washington could not survive a head-on battle with General Howe's readcoats. He could only hover, waiting to pick a favorable time and place.

This is the backdrop for "Prelude to Glory, vol.5: A Cold Bleak Hill" (Bookcraft, $22.95), bestselling author Ron Carter's continuing series of historic fiction on the Revolutionary War. In this latest installment, the Americans seek winter sanctuary at Valley Forge following disastrous defeats at Brandywine Creek and Germantown. Fighting off sickness and starvation, the patriots receive much-needed aid and training from the Marquis de Lafayette of France, along with German officer Baron von Steuben, who together train the Americans into the first "true" army of soldiers prepared to battle the British.

Beloved characters Caleb Duncan, Billy Weems, Eli Stroud, and Mary Flint experience these thrilling moments in the founding of America in this must-read sequel to Carter's first four successful volumes in the "Prelude to Glory" series.

About the Author Ron Carter's first published work was in 1988, and since that time he has written a number of novels, including the highly successful "Prelude to Glory" series. He holds a juris doctorate from the University of Utah, and recently worked as a research and writing director for the Superior Court system in Los Angeles County. He and his wife LaRae live in Park City, Utah.
