I was instantly intrigued when I saw this book and the books that are to follow in this new series. I love historical fiction and this book was everything I hoped for.
It is amazing what these people risked to come to the New Land. They struggled and suffered but they had dreams.
Mary Elizabeth was quite content to stay home. She had no desire to leave. Her journey and the obstacles she had to overcome - changed her. She became stronger. She was more confident.
William felt that he needed to leave his home. He had a past he was fleeing from. What he didn't know was that God had a plan for him.
Their faith in God was necessary for survival. I can't even imagine going across the ocean on the Mayflower. Cramped quarters, seasickness, etc.s
God gave them strength. God gave them courage. God gave them comfort.
Wonderful book. I am ready for the next book in the series.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.
