✏The 14th Colony Book Summary : On December 18, 1775, General George Washington wrote a letter to John Hancock, warning the Continental Congress that the British were stockpiling weapons and gunpowder in St. Augustine, East Florida. In his letter, Washington was sounding an alarm, as he feared that the British were preparing to reclaim the southern colonies by invading Georgia and South Carolina with an army from East Florida - a colony wholly loyal to King George III. And Washington was correct! The role played by British St. Augustine in the American War of Independence is Florida's most unique story in its 500-year history - perhaps the most unique story of the American Revolution.

What happens if both the president and vice-president-elect die before taking the oath of office? The answer is far from certain—in fact, what follows would be nothing short of total political chaos. Shot down over Siberia, ex-Justice Department agent Cotton Malone is forced into a fight for survival against Aleksandr Zorin, a man whose loyalty to the former Soviet Union has festered for decades into an intense hatred of the United States. Before escaping, Malone learns that Zorin and another ex-KGB officer, this one a sleeper still embedded in the West, are headed overseas to Washington D.C. Noon on January 20th—Inauguration Day—is only hours away. A flaw in the Constitution, and an even more flawed presidential succession act, have opened the door to disaster and Zorin intends to exploit both weaknesses to their fullest. Armed with a weapon leftover from the Cold War, one long thought to be just a myth, Zorin plans to attack. He’s aided by a shocking secret hidden in the archives of America’s oldest fraternal organization—the Society of Cincinnati—a group that once lent out its military savvy to presidents, including helping to formulate three invasion plans of what was intended to be America’s 14th colony—Canada. In a race against the clock that starts in the frozen extremes of Russia and ultimately ends at the White House itself, Malone must not only battle Zorin, he must also confront a crippling fear that he’s long denied, but which now jeopardizes everything. Steve Berry’s trademark mix of history and speculation is all here in this provocative new thriller.

✏The 14th Colony Book Summary : France in 1720 was gripped by an economic obsession. Pierre Mayeux unexpectedly got caught up in the mania. The 14th Colony is based on a true story about the father of a surname in the Louisiana Colony. Pierre suddenly finds himself, literally and figuratively, on a passenger list of the La Profond, a tall sailing ship, headed to the Louisiana Colony. The story begins in northern France. Everyone in France wanted to buy shares of the Company of the Indies, later nicknamed the Mississippi Company. The numerous wars by King Louis XIV had left a financial strain on France that could only be relieved by one man, John Law, so the Crown thought. After the death of the Sun King on September 1, 1715 and because of the minority of King Louis XV, the crown was placed in the hands of a regent, Philippi II, Duke of Orleans. John Law, a Scottish aristocrat trained in commerce and economics, managed to gain the ear of the regent and they triggered a speculative frenzy which ended in the Mississippi Bubble. At the time, France claimed a vast territory in the Mississippi valley of North America from the Hudson Bay in Canada to the Gulf of Mexico. The Crown granted the Mississippi Company the exclusive right of all trade within the colony including the lucrative fur trade. The company gained the monopoly on the tobacco and African slave trades and started issuing concessions (land grants) to French aristocrats and nobles in the Louisiana Colony. Engages were sent to the colony to work the concessions. The company also gained the monopoly over the collection of French taxes in the motherland, the minting of coins and soon started issuing paper banknotes in the stead of specie, the French gold and silver livre. Paper money was the scheme of John Law. The initial price of 500 livre for one share of company stock soon soared to 18,000 livre. The stockpile of banknotes skyrocketed chasing too few goods resulting in a rash of inflation. The company's stock and board of directors became intricately tied to France's ruling class and its economy. When the under-performing value of Mississippi Company shares plummeted, the bubble burst causing a stock market crash in France and other European countries. The ensuing financial hardships of its citizenry were imported to the Louisiana colony. Young Pierre's arrival in the colony proceeded the news of the collapse. Plucked from a privileged life on a tax farm in France, he was deposited in primitive conditions in the colony surrounded by often hostile Native American Indians. His riveting saga of suspense, love and fortune emulates the hardships of the journeys made by hundreds of subsequent sojourners to New France. Yet those survivors managed to eke out a living and propagate. From the newly founded New Orleans, ascending the Mississippi River through various posts along the river to John Law's personal concession at the Arkansas post, Pierre married, built homes, had children and grandchildren and became a landowner and businessman, all while overcoming the adversities of nature and the ferocity of the savages. Follow Pierre's journey from France to the New World in this first book, The 14th Colony, of the trilogy, Nouvelle France.

✏The Patriot Surgeon 14Th Colony Book Summary : Following the Battle of Bunker Hill in early July of 1775, George Washington takes command of the seventeen thousand men who lay siege to the city of Boston, where General Thomas Gage and his four thousand regular army troops valiantly hold out. Parliament and representatives of Great Britain no longer listen to the complaints and requests of the colonials and decline to negotiate the issues. Like his fellow members of Congress, Washington is committed to an early end of the conflict. Washington determines that, by improving the negotiating position of the American colonists, Great Britain will accede to the demands of Congress. Many in the province of Canada are similarly oppressed and disenfranchised by Parliament. With the approval of Congress, Washington devises a plan to expel the British army from the forts at Montreal and Quebec and align with Canada, making Canada the fourteenth American colony. As the Northern army proceeds up the Hudson Valley to attack Montreal, Washington appoints Colonel Benedict Arnold to lead a secret mission of 1,200 men through the wilderness of Maine to attack the undermanned and vulnerable fortress at Quebec. Dr. Tamanend Maier, now on General Washingtons administrative staff, works with Benedict Arnold to plan the expedition and will accompany him to Quebec. His brother, Dr. Christian Maier, is now in Boston. He remains loyal to his king and serves as a volunteer surgeon in the beleaguered British army. General Gage is informed of the secret expedition to Quebec and sends Christian to Quebec with the information necessary to save the fortress city.

✏America S Irresistible Attraction Book Summary : Part travelogue and part memoire, John S. Dingas newest book is a sequel to Navigating the Contradictions of America and explores disparities between Americas past and present, from the perspective of an immigrant. Featuring characters both real and fictional, Dinga shares his observations about the realities of making a new life in a new country, with an occasional flashback to the former home. The desire to immigrate to America is one shared by people all over the world, people who are often unaware of what it takes to thrive in a competitive, capitalist world where nothing is the same as before. Settling down in a new environment and navigating the politics and stresses of finding a job are just two of the aspects of culture shock a new immigrant will face. Expectations and responsibilities from those back home also add to the new immigrants challenges, and Dinga offers his suggestions on how to thrive under those stresses as well. He speaks not only to the potential immigrant but to those officials in power on either side of the process as well. Learning to make the right choices when presented with so many options is another life lesson addressed. The American society, freedoms, choices, and government are envied in many corners of the world, and Dinga explores how that perception influences the decision to start the journey. People need to know that living in America has its challengeschallenges not often imagined when the desire to immigrate pushes them to cross deserts, oceans, and unfriendly skies.
