Hi, I was asked some time back to research the true life love story of Duncan King and Lydia Fosque and write a novel about it. The result is a book called EAST ARCADIA. The time setting is the middle to late 1700's.
I am posting this here because a family by the name of Quince is mentioned in the book, including their grandson, Jacob, who went to school with young Lydia.I thought it might be of interest to some of their family members.
East Arcadia is the true life love story of Duncan King and Lydia Forsque. When the young naval officer assumed the care and responsibility for of the little girl whom he and his ship mates rescued from a pirate ship, he never dreamed it would be more than a temporary pleasant diversion from his usual duties. He was astonished to find himself thinking in terms of adoption and a permanant commitment.
