The enduring mystery of what happened to the first English colony in the New World . . .
In 1587, a group of would-be colonists set sail from England and later landed on Roanoke Island, now part of North Carolina's Outer Banks. Their ship returned to England and the settlers were never heard from again. This is the story, based on legendary and historical information, of what might have happened to them.
Jocelyn White, a newlywed married to Thomas Coleman, is reluctant to leave her home in England for the wild shores of the New World. The journey is fraught with danger, but her dependence on God and God's providence carry her safely through.
"An unforgettable journey . . .[that] will certainly intrigue and encourage!" -- Beverly LaHaye
"Powerful stories rich with historical detail and compelling characters." -- --Francine Rivers, novelist
About the Author
Christy-Award winner Angela Hunt writes for readers who expect the unexpected in novels. With nearly five million copies of her books sold worldwide, she is the best-selling author of more than 125 works ranging from picture books (The Tale of Three Trees) to novels. Now that her two children have reached their twenties, Angela and her husband live in Florida with Very Big Dogs (a direct result of watching Turner and Hooch and Sandlot too many times). This affinity for mastiffs has not been without its rewards-one of their dogs was featured on Live with Regis and Kelly as the second-largest canine in America. Their dog received this dubious honor after an all-expenses-paid trip to Manhattan for the dog and the Hunts, complete with VIP air travel and a stretch limo in which they toured New York City. Afterward, the dog gave out pawtographs at the airport. Angela admits to being fascinated by animals, medicine, unexplained phenomena, and "just about everything" except sports. Books, she says, have always shaped her life- in the fifth grade she learned how to flirt from reading Gone with the Wind. When she's not home writing, Angela often travels to teach writing workshops at schools and writers' conferences. And to talk about her dogs, of course.
