  • All I can say is WOW This was a very powerful story Thomas Tryon s foray into historical fiction is spot on Take a young woman who is inspired by Mary Wollstonecraft, a sea captain who is inspired by Byron, another you woman who loves Gothics and Byron, as well a a vast cast of characters and you have this wonderful story.I am greatly looking forward to the next part of this series.

  • The first in an unfinished series meant to be a trilogy, The Wings of the Morning is an engaging historical novel based on actual events that took place in Wethersfield, CT, the author s place of birth Tryon took some liberties with history, moving some events from nearby towns into Pequot Landing, but Wings presents a vivid, reasonably accurate picture of 19th century life in this still beautiful CT River location.


  • This book was exhaustinge saga of three families, each with their various dysfunctions The examination of the various classes in the society from the rich to the marginall with various drama, love, and heartbreak The end was a disappointment because of its abruptness.
