In 1587, a fleet of English ships set sail for the Virginia colony. During a storm, one ship became separated from the others and was never seen again. The settlers on board were presumed lost at sea, but there is both historical and legendary evidence that the colonists actually founded the Roanoke colony.
Veteran novelist Hunt (Theyn Chronicles) reimagines this slice of Colonial history through the eyes of Jocelyn White, a newlywed reluctant to leave her home in England for the wild shores of the New World. White's journey is fraught with danger, but her dependence on God and God's providence carry her safely through. Hunt's engaging historical romance will appeal to fans of B.J. Hoff and Patricia Hickman. Recommended for most collections.

Absolutely! The story was based on historical fact, and the characters were so believable.
The way the narration draws you into the story with the multitude of characters. It really gave you a sense of what it would have been like to walk in the shoes of the early settlers.
All of the characters were so well performed, but I thought Audrey was my favorite.
The end of the story, so I don't want to give it away!
This was a marvelous book in every way, especially the way the author took the facts and wove such a wonderful tale! The narration was brilliant, with so many character voices!
Amazing range of voices and great storytelling that really immersed me in the plot.
I really enjoyed listening to this book. Very engaging great narration!!!
