From the book jacket: A Night in Cold Harbor is a fascinating historical novel, strongly plotted and peopled with characters who would be superbly romantic if they were not so realistic and believable. Set in early nineteenth century England, it is the story of a young aristocrat who was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and eventually gags on it. Before his maturity is achieved, however, he has devastated more than one life, including that of his illegitimate son. Romilly Brandon's belated search for this boy provides the framework for a tale of conflicting passions, cross-purposes, and tangled relationships. A central thread in the narrative is the issue of child labor, which, together with other contemporary evils suffered by the working class, resulted in rebellious, nomadic hordes of "Walking People," ragged, gypsy-like outcasts with a highly developed spy system and a rigid social code of their own. To young Dickie Cottar, who has taken to the roads and the rough fellowship of the Walking People, his natural father is a natural enemy. The bridging of this chasm between father and son is the heart of the story.
