Falling From the SkyeBook - 2014
When American B-17 pilot Alex Kent isn't struggling to survive World War II bombing raids in the skies over Germany he spends time trying to unravel a conundrum with even greater dangers: uncovering the lost legacy of William Kent, his great-grandfather seven generations removed. Alex knows nothing about his ancestor's life prior to William's arrival in 1740 colonial Virginia as an eleven-year-old indentured servant although Kent family folklore suggests William might have been the exiled child of an English noble. Over the generations, several Kent family members have tried to confirm that speculation. None succeeded. Some died trying. On leave in war torn London from his bombing duties, Alex meets Sarah Perkins, fiancée of the Duke of Wyeford's only son. Alex and Sarah soon realize they are attracted to one another and she volunteers to help in his pursuit of William's heritage. When Wyeford becomes aware of Alex's quest, he understands the American pilot poses a threat to the conspiracy of silence concocted two hundred years earlier to deny young William his legitimate birthright. Exposure of the conspiracy would topple the Wyeford dynasty, stripping the duke of his title and wealth. He vows to take whatever actions are necessary to see that never happens. Danger and tension escalate as Alex's search barrels toward a shocking conclusion.
