_______________



An updated edition of this outstanding historical novel, in a stunning new package to celebrate the 20th anniversary of its publication.



When Mary sees her grandmother accused of witchcraft and hanged for the crime, she is silently hurried to safety by an unknown woman. The woman gives her tools to keep the record of her days – paper and ink. Mary is taken to a boat in Plymouth and from there sails to the New World where she hopes to make a new life among the pilgrims. But old superstitions die hard and soon Mary finds that she, like her grandmother, is the victim of ignorance and stupidity, and once more she faces important choices to ensure her survival.



With a vividly evoked environment and characters skilfully and patiently drawn, this is a powerful literary achievement by Celia Rees that is utterly engrossing from start to finish.

LadyNatashca ,

I love this story

This is a great story; lullabies me to sleep on countless nights. The only downfall is that I have purchased it twice as it evaporated in an update and now it will only work on an upgraded iOS that I refuse to do after losing 50% of my apps after an update from iOS 10 to 11. So sad that I, once again, don’t have access to this wonderful story.
