The Hearth and Eagle: A Novel
The Hearth and Eagle: A Novel0 0 5 Scritto da: Anya Seton
Inspired by research into her own family history, novelist Anya Seton created this compelling tale of New England, set in a “sea-girdled town of rocks and winding lanes and clustered old houses. ”
It is not only the story of Marblehead dating back to its earliest settlement, and of a family who stayed there in the Hearth and Eagle Inn; it is also the story of Hesper Honeywood, a passionate young woman whose long and dramatic life, full of triumph and tragedy, was interwoven with the history of both.
“Miss Seton handles her clan cleverly… . In all this the house itself stands as an eloquent reminder of Yankee staunchness. ” —Saturday Review of Literature
“Skillfully weaves the events of the time … an excellent read. ” —The Historical Novels Review
