First Novel in the St. Simons Trilogy

A compelling, vibrant saga of conflict, love, and a young man's search to fulfill his dreams.

In this enthralling first novel of the St. Simons Trilogy, Eugenia Price shares the compelling story of James Gould, a young man with a passionate dream. Raised in post-Revolution Granville, Massachusetts, Gould could only imagine the beauty and warmth of lands to the south. It was there that he longed to build bridges and lighthouses from his very own design and plans. The gripping story unfolds as Gould follows his dream to the raw settlement of Bangor on the Penobscot River, to St. Simons Island off the coast of Georgia, to lawless Spanish East Florida, and back—at last and finally—to St. Simons. Along the way, he encounters hardship, peril, failure, and success, but it is the unwavering love of Janie Harris, an especially beautiful and strong-willed young woman, that fulfills his deep need for someone who can share the dream and the life he has chosen.

From the Publisher:

St. Simon's island is filled with enthralling desire, enchantment, and danger as Eugenia Price's wonderful St. Simon's trilogy begins....

James Gould is the founder of the Southern dynasty whose rich, bold life Eugenia Price has chronicled in her celebrated novel New Moon Rising. His dream is to make a life for himself in the magnificent, untamed, post-Revolutionary South. How Gould pursues his singular ambition, the exotic people and places he encounters along the way, and especially the beautiful and strong girl who comes to share the dream and life he has chosen, make up the captivating core of this engrossing and extraordinary novel.
