The Georgians by Cynthia Van Hazinga



Cynthia Van Hazinga is quite a story teller weaving together the tangled lives of the Dunlies, Barstows, their extended families and historical figures. I first read this novel many years ago when it came out in paperback. It's fun to reread on my Nook. I plan to read the rest in the series. Susan rated it it was amazing Mar 16, 2016.

Somehow in the haze of high school I daydreamed through American history, and had made no effort to remedy my deficiency until recently. A friend recommended the historical romances by Cynthia Van Hazinga, and since then I've been devouring her books. I read Van Hazinga's three Revolutionary War books (Red, White and Blue series) and have now finished The Georgians, which proves that American history is anything but dull. Heroes and scofflaws, the righteous and the unjust, modest maidens and hoydens -- these early Americans were far more fascinating than the upright stick figures portrayed in our fusty textbooks.
The Georgians and its sequel White Columns, which I have bought but not yet read, tell the story of British settlers struggling to create a livable English-style civilization in what is now the Peach State. On the frontier of this new and often inimical world, they chip away at dense red clay soil in the suffocating heat, and fend off sneak attacks by Indians and Spaniards from the south (Florida). Mosquito-borne disease is another frequent threat.
The Trustees of Georgia originally forbade slavery in the colony, theorizing that the released prisoners (mostly debtors) they had sent to populate the wilderness would profit from hard physical work. But the settlers chafed at having to sweat for their bread, and those who didn't return to England envied their South Carolina neighbors who were able to amass fortunes on the backs of the black African persons they bought and sold. Before Georgia was 20 years old, the Trustees relented and Georgia committed what many have called our nation's original sin. The ramifications of that decision have colored and even determined much of our national life to this day.
Van Hazinga underpins her romantic tales of lusty men and women, and twins separated at birth, with meticulous research and telling details about historical characters and events.
As Santayana said, Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it. It helps to understand the deep roots of our current divisions, and gives one a sense of their intractability.

This is a very satisfying and well-researched novel. It features a lot of colorful characters, a lot of story, and a lot of history. I learned a lot I didn't know about colonial Georgia before the advent of cotton and before slavery was legalized. It brings to life the people who made the decisions that set the course of our history. Often the fate of the characters is shockingly tragic. I'm hooked on the sequel.
