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
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.
