"1st book in the "Florida Trilogy" and set in old St.Augustine, Florida, during the time when it changed hands from Spanish control to British and back again. A love story like all of Price's, as well as historically based. The Spanish Fort of San Marcos,George Street & other landmarks still exist from that time. Maria of the title was an actual person."
"Based on actual people & events, Price tells the story of Margaret Fleming, wife of a plantation owner in N. Florida on the St John's River. As I live on Fleming Island on land once owned by the Flemings & have visited Margaret's chapel, this book has great meaning for me. (Margaret's chapel:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Margaret's_Episcopal_Church_and_Cemetery.)"

""Bright Captivity": book one in the "Georgia Trilogy" which begins during the War of 1812. Dungeness and Cumberland Island (now a National Park w/ its'herds of wild horse & the very old church where JFK Jr was married) are some of the sites used in this story."
