This is the begining of the fictional Saga of the Morgan family. It mixes real historic events and people with the fictional Morgan Family. It intertwines them nicely to present a strong view of the times with an emphasis on religious idealology.

Out of all of Jack Cavanaugh's books that he has written I believe that The Puritans is the best. Some say that the historical elements may be drab or even unresearched, but just from reading the book one can tell that Jack Cavanaugh knows what he is talking about. I commend Mr. Cavanaugh for the research that he has done and this wonderful book that he has written. This page-turner was a real joy to read. God has blessed Mr. Cavanaugh with a wonderful ability for writing pure entertainment.

Although the book was written in 1993, I found it a classic-one that could be read anytime and be time worthy. Even though this was a novel, I found the English History of the Puritans interesting. One reads so much about the Pilgrims, and little about the persecution of the Puritans.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I am looking forward to continuing the series. This seemed to be well researched and brought me right into the lives of the characters. This book would be appropriate reading for any student of early America or any fan of historical fiction.

I just finished reading this book as a requirement for my history class, and I have to say I was pleasently surprised. Cavanaugh did a great job with having enough romance involved to keep me interested, but at the same time he didn't make it too mushy. He also did it in a way as not to overshadow the Christian morals of the story. I thought his reasearch was well put together,and pretty accurate. I have to say the ending was a total surprise, and I'm glad I wasn't able to predict what was going to happen half-way through the book. Well done Cavanaugh!

This book just didn't have the feel of a well-written story. The author used choppy and forced language. The characters seemed unrealistic of the time and too "Americanized" for me. It had a good plot and interesting ideas. The ending was unpredicable but didn't fit the mood of the story. I couldn't believe it because if the characters were real, they would have been able to do something before the final events happened.

Even though Puritans was not the best book in the series, it still was very enjoyable. He never fails to incorporate Christ and the scriptures in his books. It was a very entertaining story. I couldn't put it down.
