As the youngest son in England’s Puritan heartland, Jonathan Smythe foresees a life of servitude to his older brother. After committing a vengeful murder, he is forced to flee his village, facing the perils of ocean voyages and the unknowns of the New World. Yet driven by dreams of owning fertile land without slaves, he embarks on a hazardous journey to the English colonies, a pilgrimage to a new life that will be more demanding than he ever imagined, involving desperate battles and massacres against the Native American Pequot nation after he finally reaches the Massachusetts Bay Colony. When Jonathan befriends Running Wolf, a Mohegan ally, he may finally find passage to his true passions and self. In this compelling tale, this young Puritan man must face raw challenges that test his faith and life in a new world as he searches for his destiny.
