Description
Women are needed so badly in the new colony they are actually being kidnapped and shipped there to be sold for 120 lbs of best leaf tobacco. When Katherine Arlington awakes in a drugged stupor aboard the Marmaduke, bound for the colony of Jamestowne, she is only slightly more afraid of what lies before her than what lies behind. Beginning with the death of her older brother Samuel five years before, every aspect of the life she knew has fallen apart. When she learns that Captain Jamison of the Marmaduke intends to offer her as a wife to a gentleman in the Jamestowne Colony by the name of Payton Montgomery, she has no idea that their lives became entwined five years ago with the death of her brother. Nor does she know that Peyton is the guardian of her brother’s five-year-old son, a nephew she never knew existed. This is the story of a woman who finds, in Virginia, the missing pieces to the puzzle her life has become. A woman who finds spiritual enlightenment, purpose, fulfillment, and even the love of the man her soul recognizes as her destiny. It is the story of a man who has suffered losses so great, he believes his very sanity depends on not allowing anyone to become too precious. It is our story, our Anglo-American roots.
