A new, updated edition of Newton Frohlich’s acclaimed novel 1492: A Novel of Christopher Columbus, the Spanish Inquisition, and a World at the Turning Point will be released October 10, Columbus Day, 2016.
And Newton is hard at work on his next novel . . . a historical novel set in the American Revolution and told from two vastly different points of view. First, there is George Washington, the conservative southern plantation owner, who had his own special reasons for wanting independence from England. On the other side is Mercy Otis Warren, a representative of liberal northerners who dreamt of a society imbued with Puritan principles.
How these two groups managed to work together to gain independence from the strongest empire with the most powerful army in the western world is the story of this historical novel. The American Revolution was an extraordinary and difficult feat accomplished by the strength—and willingness to compromise—of people like Washington and Warren, and was definitely not a tea party.
