A Passel of Trouble is a meticulously researched fact-based historical novel about one of the most extraordinary characters of the American Revolutionary War. The saga follows David Fanning, a 19-year old Loyalist, and his Quaker friend Josh Lindley as they find themselves at philosophical odds, yet allied to preserve the king's rule in the Carolinas. Through a series of captures, gutsy escapes, raids, and ambushes, Fanning’s exploits inspired admiration in his followers and dread in his enemies; before the war was over, he was considered the most feared man in North Carolina. In addition to demonstrating how Fanning grew from a naive backwoods militia sergeant to a highly skilled partisan leader, A Passel of Trouble provides insight into the significant role a prominent Quaker played during the war and his influence on Fanning's career.
