From the cover: “It was not the hope of easy wealth that decided Robert Fountaine to join a band of colonists bound for North Carolina during the eighteenth century. Hanoverian England had ceased to be a haven for this exiled Frenchman. So, taking his invalid wife, beautiful daughter Gabrielle, and young Scottish chieftain, David Moray, he sailed with the convoy carrying the great navigator Captain Woodes Rogers to the Bahamas.”
