KIRKUS REVIEW

A puzzling and not too easy story to get into, but once in, well worth reading. The story of the Overs, gallant independents, who left Old Scrooby in 1608, because the King would permit them no freedom of worship; who went to the Low Country and prospered there, but departed again, when wars threatened; who sailed in the Mayflower and put down new roots in New Plymouth, there to plant seed in a new land. A panorama of the Pilgrims' story, through the adventures of Young Matt. I think it would have been easier reading if tightened a bit.
