The American Chronicles, Book 2
Volume Two of Robert Vaughan’s stunning American Chronicles follows the tumult of American during the second decade of the twentieth century. The indestructible Titanic goes down in the cold Arctic sea, millions of immigrants flood into the country, a bloody worker’s revolution occurs in Russia, and in Sarajevo an assassination quickly ignites the flames of the First World War. It is 1912, and the Lady Lucinda Chetwynd-Dunleigh can hear the final strains of the ship’s orchestra as the famous Titanic sinks below the surface of the water. She watches the doomed ship from a lifeboat full of weeping women, contemplating the 1,503 people who went down with it, including her husband and her clandestine American lover. Daredevil flyer Billy Canfield lets his passion for the new science of aeronautics lead him to greatness as one of the top flying aces of WWI, while at home rebellious suffragettes defy the law and face prison fighting for the right to vote. The second decade of the twentieth century poses new challenges for America’s bravest and strongest, but with danger comes the promise of even greater freedom.
