KIRKUS REVIEW

The early lays of the formation of the Massachusetts Bay Colony have been recounted many times, but rarely with the persuasive, human aspects this novel offers. Samuel Dawning, one of the few skilled farmers in the emerging science of husbandry decides to leave England for America. Hetty, his daughter who rejects the lure of London society, accompanies him. The long and bitter weeks of the voyage, the story of how Hetty took over her father's projects after his death, creates a dynamic portrait of the sufferings and rewards of life in those early days.
