Description


Sailing north from Virginia with his family in search of Squanto and Samoset, Aleyn James's ship Virginia is wrecked on the outer banks of Cape Cod, where his family is welcomed to the colony of New Plymouth by newly-arrived pilgrims. Aleyn, his soon-to-be wife Acoona and their children Alan and Tara help to establish a trading post near the site of the failed Popham colony at Fort St. George and become valued members of the community—until the new lives they've built for themselves are threatened by the looming Pequot War. In the fourth book of The Colonies series, readers will see the aging Aleyn James and Acoona Stonefire take a step back and watch their children, Alan and Tara, forge new lives for themselves in the still-wild and often-unforgiving English colonies. Exploring the time leading to King Philip's War, thought to be the deadliest of the colonial wars, Nor'easter not only transitions to the next generation of the James family but the next phase in the development of America.

About the author


Glen F. Alden graduated from Morse High School in Bath, Maine. As a young boy attending West Point village grade school in Phippsburg, Maine, his school bus ran directly over the ground once occupied by Fort St. George in the early days of the 17th Century. At the time, no one realized that they were crossing over a historically important site of early American colonization. His interest in history led him to investigate the facts surrounding that first attempt at New England colonization and write a novel—ThunderSnow—based on that event. He earned a BA in English Literature from Gordon College in Wenham, Massachusetts and served in the Navy, seeing duty in Newport, RI, the Philippines, and Danang, South Vietnam. His most recent endeavor was a family-owned business in Daytona Beach, Florida. He's currently retired and lives in Gorham, New Hampshire, where he runs an Airbnb called the Trail Break.
