Book Description:

Can a religious separatist and an opportunistic spy make it in the New World?
A brand new series for fans of all things related to history, romance, adventure, faith, and family trees.

Mary Elizabeth Chapman boards the Speedwell in 1620 as a Separatist seeking a better life in the New World. William Lytton embarks on the Mayflower as a carpenter looking for opportunities to succeed—and he may have found one when a man from the Virginia Company offers William a hefty sum to keep a stealth eye on company interests in the new colony. The season is far too late for good sailing and storms rage, but reaching land is no better as food is scarce and the people are weak. Will Mary Elizabeth survive to face the spring planting and unknown natives? Will William be branded a traitor and expelled?

My Review

Ok, first off I do not normally read what I consider “religious” novels & to be honest I didn’t think this would be one, but it was. Though the religious part of the book fit into the story line & was needed for the first pilgrims I found it to be a bit monotonous with the amount of religion in the book. I understand it was needed for the story line, but it got to the point I started skipping over those sections.

Otherwise the story line & historical accuracy was spot on to what I believe how it would have been for the first Pilgrims arriving at Plymouth. The Indians were even brought into the story line which I thought was a very nice touch.

Overall I consider this to be a religious roman novel. It was very good, but I doubt I will read anymore of this type. It just is not my thing.

I received this book from Net Galley for this review.
