The author tells the story of the reasoning behind the group known as the Pilgrims leaving their homes which were located in both England and with another group living in Holland and travel 3000 miles to settle in a raw new land. They spent two months at sea in the Mayflower cramped and seasick and sailing through several hurricanes before coming to what was Cape Cod. The group learned to survive in primitive conditions with the possibility of attacks by tribes of native Americans always hanging over their heads.
The writing and style are well done as I remember them being when I first came across Gerson thanks to a recommendation by one of my teachers who devoured his books. I certainly recommend that the reader try this novel and then seek out more when they are reprinted as I trust they will be.
It is a story about courage, discipline and the importance of good leadership.
As the settlers work incredibly hard to stave off starvation, we see the miracles the Lord brings about on their behalf, which lead to many of the unbelievers among them turning their lives over to God.
This book spoke to me especially as I am a descendant of the Huguenots who came to South Africa, many of them via Holland, from France where they also suffered religious persecution.
The book is well written, well researched and easy to read, and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
I was given a free copy of the book by NetGalley from Sapere Books. The opinions in this review are completely my own.
