Synopsis: William Turner is a young Englishman who must choose between staying and fighting for his beliefs, only to be faced with certain death, or fleeing to the New World to face a future of uncertainty. Choosing the latter, Turner steals aboard the Fortitude, a ship bound for Jamestown and the colonies. He must make a life for himself among God-fearing Puritans, while he himself is a Baptist at heart. Life is not easy in the New World. Besides the ever-growing religious tension, there is also the threat of savage Indian attacks. Turner again is faced with a choice: Stifle his beliefs and continue in his Puritan lifestyle, or follow his heart and perhaps pave the way for religious independence.
Larry Cadran’s thought-provoking writing captures the emotional and physical turmoil felt by early American settlers along the eastern coast. Based on actual persons and events, Lawrence describes the unrest in the colonies through the eyes of William Turner, who finds the same injustices and more in the New World. Read about the origins of the battle between church and state and the battles between the American colonists and Native Indians, all of which paved the way to America’s independence.
