Elinor: A Riveting Story Based on the Lost Colony of Roanoke (Daughters of the Lost Colony) by Shannon McNear

 

In 1587, Elinor White Dare sailed from England heavy with her first child but full of hopes. Her father, a renowned artist and experienced traveler, has convinced her and her bricklayer husband Ananias to make the journey to the New World. Land, they are promised, more goodly and beautiful than they can ever imagine. But nothing goes as planned from landing at the wrong location, to facing starvation, to the endless wait for help to arrive. And, beyond her comprehension, Elinor finds herself utterly alone. . . .
The colony at Roanoke disappeared into the shadows of history. But, what if one survived to leave a lasting legacy?

About The Author


Shannon McNear loves losing herself in local history. A Midwestern farm girl who lived in Charleston, South Carolina, for more than two decades before being transplanted to North Dakota, she's a military wife, mother of 8, and a member of ACFW and FHL. When not cooking, researching, or leaking story from her fingertips, she enjoys being outdoors, basking in the beauty of the northern prairies.

My Review


 


 For a fictional story, this read is full of facts, and we are walking in their shoes.

This is the birth of the first baby Virginia Dare, but this story is so much more. We are with Elinor White Dare, Virginia's mother, and her journey to set her feet in Roanoke already expecting Virginia, and traveling with her husband and her father.

These people did not have easy lives, and there is so much happening, but they show a great faith in God.

Through the eyes of the author you will find out what happened to the lost Colony of Roanoke.

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Barbour, and was not required to give a positive review.
