STONE, England (PRWEB) May 17, 2013
In “The Pictou Triangle” (published by Trafford Publishing), Jean Lucas’ 2007 historical novel, readers are taken back in time to Pictou, a small, backwater town in Canada that, at one time in history, was a busy timber and immigration port and part of a smuggling route involving the West Indies and Scotland.
Set in the early 19th century, “The Pictou Triangle” traces the life stories of two young men, Robert Thompson and Angus Ritchie, who are first and second generation immigrants to the New World. Robert and Angus are both parted from their families until they re-discover them again. Historically accurate, the story is woven into the emerging society, but murder, smuggling and retribution provide excitement, and the fictional development of the story adds romance.
An excerpt from “The Pictou Triangle”:
“It proved a fateful evening. Hostess of the event for some dozen people was the Judge’s daughter, Delia. William was immediately bowled over and utterly captivated by her charm, grace and beauty. Delia moved easily among the assembling guests, greeting them warmly and chatting vivaciously. William felt tongue-tied in her presence. She was quite the most beautiful female he had ever encountered.”
Lucas hopes her book gives readers a new understanding on the development of the New World. “It is easy reading,” she explains. “It includes some romance for women to enjoy, some excitement and tension to attract men and boys. The truth of the historical setting will appeal to children – it is history made easy.”
