[lovely, fresh copy, NOT the common book club edition, top corners bumped, date of original purchase written in red ink at top of front pastedown; otherwise book and jacket are both immaculate]. (endpaper maps) Historical novel set "at the close of the American Revolution, when England and Spain were at war along the lower Mississippi, [and] young Dr. John Powers, scion of an artistocratic but impoverished family, found himself in trouble with his Tory regiment in Pensacola. Unjustly dismissed after a pay-roll scandal, he made his way to Natchez, picking up en route an attractive, tough-minded Scottish girl, Faith Gordon, who became his 'wife' in name and for strategic reasons only." (NOT the common book-club issue, this is the true first edition (stated on copyright page), in an unclipped jacket with original price ($3.75) intact.)
