KIRKUS REVIEW

In his 15th historical novel, the author deals with that not always sympathetic Pilgrim Father William Bradford and the first three years of the Plymouth Colony. Skillfully integrating flashbacks into the earlier years of Bradford's life in Yorkshire and Leyden with later hardships of the Plymouth settlement, Mr. Gerson has created a believable, lively and suspenseful account of a man and a period that has been almost done to death. Although historians might well quibble with the psychological explanations, the reader in search of entertainment will find this Mr. Gerson's best novel to date.
