Description

Robert Moray was captured when the French took Fort Necessity, and he is now prisoner at the citadel. He must attempt to escape as well as save the lovely Mademoiselle Alixe Duvarny before the Seven Years' War reaches her home and destroys everything that she holds dear. Gilbert Parker was a British author who made his fame by writing about Canada and its inhabitants. His most noted works are The Right of Way and The Weavers, both of which were, in their day, among the top ten bestselling novels in America. The Right of Way was on the list in 1901 and 1902, while The Weavers was on the list in 1907 and 1908. The Seats of the Mighty was made into a film in 1914 in which John Barrymore starred.

Author Biography

Sir Horatio Gilbert George Parker (1862 - 1932), known as Gilbert Parker, Canadian novelist and British politician, was born at Camden East, Addington, Ontario, the son of Captain J. Parker, R.A. The best of his novels are those in which he first took for his subject the history and life of the French Canadians and his permanent literary reputation rests on the fine quality, descriptive and dramatic, of his Canadian stories. Pierre and his People (1892) was followed by Mrs. Falchion (1893), The Trail of the Sword (1894), When Valmond came to Pontiac (1895), An Adventurer of Icy North (1895) and The Seats of the Mighty (1896, dramatized in 1897). The Seats of the Mighty was a historical novel depicting the English conquest of Quebec with James Wolfe and the Marquis de Montcalm as two of the characters. The Lane that Had No Turning (1900), a collection of short stories set in the fictional Quebec town of Pontiac, contains some of his best work and is viewed by some as being in the tradition of such Gothic classics as Stoker's Dracula and James's The Turn of the Screw. In The Battle of the Strong (1898) he broke new ground, laying his scene in the Channel Islands. His chief later books were The Right of Way (1901), Donovan Pasha (1902), The Ladder of Swords (1904), The Weavers (1907), Northern Lights (1909) and The Judgment House (1913). Parker had three that made it into the top 10 on the annual list of bestselling novels in the United States, two of which were on it for two years in a row.
