John Jakes has been publishing stories since he was a college student in the s. He got his start in the pulp magazine world, and then became an active player in the popularization of sword and sorcery. While his work was successful, Jakes' biggest break came years later in the s, once he transitioned into writing historical fiction and left his advertising job. The popularity of the Kent Family Chronicles—an eight-book saga meant to celebrate America's Bicentennial—was matched by a second family drama, the North and South Trilogy. Both series sold millions of copies around the world, were shoo-ins for the New York Times bestseller list, and cemented Jakes' literary fame. Look below to learn more about John Jakes' bibliography and see why he's been hailed as a master of storytelling.
With the country torn in half, can these two families ever manage to come together again?
As the illegitimate son of a duke, Philip Charbonneau has, unsurprisingly, been denied his birthright. With threats around every corner, he and his mother flee London for America, hoping that a home in the New World will lead to a new and better life.
After changing his last name to Kent, Philip becomes embroiled in pre-Revolution politics, and even matriculates in the same circles as Benjamin Franklin, Samuel Adams, and Paul Revere. Come The Rebels , the follow-up novel, he is fully immersed in the Revolutionary War—and the next six installments track generations of Kents throughout other pivotal moments in American history.
Homeland introduces readers to another fascinating family: After settling in with his Uncle Joe—a millionaire who has made his fortune in the brewery business—Pauli witnesses war and the birth of motion pictures. He finds love, albeit a forbidden one, and meets real-life historical figures like Teddy Roosevelt. Want more authors like John Jakes?

I am really starting to get very interested in the Hazard and Main families. I am very much looking forward to reading what happens next. I finished this one The de I started reading this one in the vet's office while waiting on test results for my elderly dog.
The detail that goes into the story shows how very destructive the Civil War was. Not only to the family involved, but to the land itself and everything around it. I will read another book, then come back and the finish trilogy. Looking forward to story.
What a great trilogy!! I am very glad to have spent the money for the set. I might see about buying more books from this writer. I just with that more of his books came in sets like this one. To anyone that enjoys historal fiction this one is for you. Aug 20, Julie rated it it was amazing. North and South trilogy Excellent! This is one of the most detailed and graphic trilogies that I have ever read.
I land on reading his other books. Highly recommended! Mar 23, Dee Kay rated it it was amazing. John Jakes is a very talented writer. He brings his characters to life and makes them believable.
This saga was so very insightful into both sides of the Civil War that you could sympathize and understand what each side felt and their justification for their way of life. I'm not taking sides, but seeing them. The Mains were a genteel, wealthy family of the South and 5. The Mains were a genteel, wealthy family of the South and the Hazards were very successful in their Pennsylvania steel company.
Even through the war between the states, when they were on opposing sides, they remained true to their friendship. This three-book saga takes you through the years leading up to the war and brings you through the devastation and aftermath of the war.
This is definitely worth investing the time to read. Wishing You Happy Reading!! Jul 25, Colleen rated it really liked it.

North and South
Jakes uses the two families and the people that they meet to really detail the lives of people as diverse as the "southern belle gone wrong," the "westward explorer 4. I thoroughly recommend the trilogy. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because the writing, while excellent, never really "grabbed" me in and of itself. May 12, Charles rated it it was ok.
I haven't finished even book one of the trilogy, but I have to stop. On the positive side, Jakes has very well developed characters.
The interaction between them is believable. And his stories are interesting. My problem is how much I felt like I was reading a soap opera. Sorry, but that's they only way I can put it. For me, the story dragged with too much detail and too many characters. Click I Have iTunes to open it now. View More by This Author.
