Mingling actual historical events of the American Revolution, Shed No Tears introduces the reader to a collection of young men and women shaping their lives, and a nation born from the wilderness of Colonial America. Jonathan Breckenridge, the patriotic rebel son of Boston's wealthiest candle maker; Zachary Clark, a man grounded in the earth, and the son of Charles Town's leading physician; Jackson Richards, the heir to Charles Town's largest plantation; and finally, Solomon Cooke, angry son of the maker of the most popular saddle in all of the North American colonies. Friends since childhood they are drawn even closer together, and eventually torn apart, by a common struggle against a far away King, and a greater struggle to convince their fellow citizens of the equality existing between all men. Shed No Tears is the interlocking saga of lives interwoven by fate, events and circumstances, and the winds of change. Historic, romantic, and haunting, Shed No Tears starts with the birth of a nation crippled by the hypocrisy of slavery, and ends in the classic style of toe to toe standoff between good and evil; idealism and greed; slavery and freedom; love and hate; and patriotism and treason.
