"Mr. Barnes, you can take this shipyard and all the others and shove 'em up His Majesty's bloody arse." Shouting these treasonous words to his employer, Isham Holt, by far the most skilled shipwright in England, angrily left his place of employment and began a journey of discovery: of a new land, a new culture, new friends and ultimately of himself. At a time when Colonial South Carolina had ended its Proprietary phase and had become a Crown Colony, the Talleigh fortune was thoroughly invested in this new world. Lord Fredrick Talleigh had dreams of new endeavors and new ways of living that, as the new head of The Colonial Land, Shipping and Commerce Company, and with his beloved Corinna by his side, he was determined to establish. TALLY'S NOOK takes us from pages of DIRTY RICE into new territory with new characters and old. We follow them as they all struggle to survive and to love and to prosper amid the outrages of fevers and violent storms, even emotional storms, in this beautiful land: the Low Country of South Carolina.
