Last Refuge of Scoundrels

A Revolutionary Novel
By Paul Lussier (Electronic Book, 2001)
The American Revolution has never been seen for what it reallywas: a circus of greed and self-aggrandizement as much as a warwaged by colonial radicals. "Last Refuge of Scoundrels"focuses on the American Revolution as it was lived, breathed, experienced, and dreaded by historical characters who wereactually there--from famous leaders such as George Washingtonand Benjamin Franklin to the ordinary folk whom history hasneglected, yet who were vital in the winning of our country'sfreedom.

The story centers on the star-crossed love affair between twopatriots, John Lawrence (a key aide to Washington) and DeborahSimpson (an American spy who disguises herself as a soldier), and through their eyes the events of the revolutionary times unfold.

Along the way, the reader gets an up-close and three-dimensionallook at such American legends as John Hancock, Franklin, SamAdams, Washington, and other key personalities of the time.Lussier's historical account of these figures present the readerwith a most entertaining and revelatory look at what reallyhappened when our country was born. These Founding Fathersare nothing like the staid portraits we
