Margaret's Story

Dublin Core

Abstract

Youthful and spirited Margaret Seton has her heart set on winning over the recently widowed Lewis Fleming. As their love blossoms against the backdrop of Florida's bid for statehood, Margaret's devoted heart and unwavering spirit mends a once broken family. Will the love between Margaret and Lewis be enough to weather the storms of the Seminole Wars, the Civil War, and Reconstruction?

The other identifiable local locations are Margaret's childhood home in Switzerland along the St. Johns River, and the Ximenez-Fatio House in St. Augustine.

Dr. Fleming's family lived on the opposite side of the St. Johns River on the plantation of Hibernia, and Margaret built the now-historic St. Margaret's Episcopal Church and Cemetery. Doctors Lake is named for Dr. Fleming.
