She was unique in that almost everything she wrote was published on both sides of the Atlantic. Canadian and London publishers extended her works around the globe. Her other novels include two Civil War stories: The Long Roll (1911) and Cease Firing (1912), The Great Valley (1926), and Miss Delicia Allen (1932). --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Lewis Rand is a poor boy of the early 1800's. His father is a tobacco farmer and is totally against "book larnin'", but Lewis manages to educate himself. He lucks up on earning the patronage of none other than Thomas Jefferson and grows up to make himself into a successful lawyer. Things continue his way as, against her family's wishes, Lewis wins the hand of the lovely Jacqueline Churchill. There's even talk being bandied about of Lewis becoming governor of Virginia. Then it all goes downhill. Lewis starts to drift away from Jefferson and come under the spell of Aaron Burr. It's no real secret he's planning to throw his lot in with Burr's grandiose schemes of establishing a new kingdom out West. Several people try to talk Lewis out of it. Even Ludwell Cary, Lewis' rival in love and war, tries to save Rand from himself. (At one point I was actually wishing Jacqueline would leave Lewis and hook up with Ludwell, which shows what kind of lead character Lewis is.) As Burr's plans fall apart, Lewis crosses a line that he can't cross back over, which leads to the depressing ending. There's one speech Lewis gives that goes on and on and I skipped over, because Johnston really loves to use as many words as she can, but compared to her other works she keeps herself in check most of the time for this novel.
