Overview

Set in a city as lively and absorbing as the novel's writing, The True and Authentic History of Jenny Dorset is a comic historical epic with a memorable heroine. The novel, while parodying the style of eighteenth-century novelists such as Henry Fielding and William Thackeray, charts the growth of the beautiful Jenny Dorset as she matures from a headstrong child into a tenacious freedom fighter and leader of the Daughters of Liberty as the Revolutionary War approaches. Henry Hawthorne, an astute and witty family servant, narrates this adventure that follows the rise of and humorous feud between two eccentric low-country plantation families. The True and Authentic History of Jenny Dorset is an exciting and often hilarious novel that is entertaining reading for anyone who loves a good adventure and alluring characters.
