Forge Books

The last season in Newport, Rhode Island is the summer of 1941, just before Pearl Harbor. It is the end of an era of social glitter and privilege. Sera, a young Portugese beauty from nearby Stonington, Connecticut, falls in love with Russell, a young Naval Lieutenant from a socially prominent Newport family, who is stationed at the War College--the naval base near Newport where secret military scenarios are played out by future commanders. She is swept off her feet by the charming Russell who thinks nothing of borrowing secret documents to raise the money his family won't give him to date Sera. But Sera will not stand for that. Sophistocated thrills and romance energize The Last Season, from the author of The Gypsy Man and The Perfect Machine.
