A family builds its empire in books four through six of an American historical epic from the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of North and South.

The Titans: In the hellish years of the Civil War, while the nation struggles with its identity, the Kent family fights greed and hatred. In New York, devious Louis Kent controls the family dynasty—now on the verge of collapse. Meanwhile, his cousin Jephtha Kent backs the abolitionist cause even though it may cost him his sons . . . The Warriors: With the advent of the transcontinental railroad, the Kents continue to fight for their place among America's wealthy. Temptation beckons young Jeremiah Kent as a Southern belle lures him into a trap of lust, lies, and murder. The nation may be facing a rebirth, but that doesn't mean all survive . . .
