Overview

A short story that blends historical fiction, romance, and the paranormal to explore the mystery of the Lost Colony of Roanoke.

In 1587, a group of English settlers sailed for Roanoke Colony. Among them was expectant mother Eleanor Dare, who gave birth to a daughter--the first English baby born in the New World. But the fledgling colony could not survive for long without help. The English garrison they'd expected to meet had vanished; the settlers found only a single skeleton.

Eleanor's father sailed for England to gather men and supplies. But when he returned in 1590, the entire colony had vanished. On a fence post nearby, a single word was carved: CROATOAN. Were the settlers murdered by the Croatoan tribe? Did they abandon the colony to seek shelter away from Roanoke Island? Or did something more sinister happen?

In this imaginative re-telling of the colony's final days, Jenni Wiltz blends historical fiction, romance, and a touch of the paranormal.

Includes a timeline of the Roanoke Colony and a historical note about Manteo, the Croatoan tribesman who lived with the colonists.

    Just weird and horrific. A demon in a cistern? Pre tweenish, immature and just goes to show you that anyone can write an ebbok and sell it for a dollar. Serious scholars beware.
