James Fenimore Cooper was a prolific and popular American writer of the early 19th century. His historical romances of frontier and Indian life in the early American days created a unique form of American literature. He lived most of his life in Cooperstown, New York, which was founded by his father William on property he owned. Cooper was a lifelong member of the Episcopal Church and in his later years contributed generously to it. He attended Yale University for three years, where he was a member of the Linonian Society, but was expelled for misbehaviour.

Before embarking on his career as a writer he served in the U.S. Navy as a Midshipman, which greatly influenced many of his novels and other writings. He is best remembered as a novelist who wrote numerous sea-stories and the five historical novels of the frontier period known as the Leatherstocking Tales. Among naval historians Cooper's works on the early U.S. Navy have been well received, but they were sometimes criticized by his contemporaries. Among his most famous works is the Romantic novel The Last of the Mohicans, often regarded as his masterpiece.

At just 7 pages, I knew it would be short, but I still feel kind of disappointed. I've loved all of the Being(s) in Love books so far, but this one was just too short.In 3rd person, it gives just one POV, for Frangipani, and I was hoping for a really sweet, lovely story of romance blossoming, but wh...

Woah! finally we get to know who the heck was behind this hornets' nest of a mess. For a while there I thought Bianca was going to lose faith in Jakob. But she trusted her instincts and her heart. Not much about David in this one. But Steve and Rosie have plum roles to play. A lot is revealed and al...
