Ribbon of Love is a beautiful romantic story of colonial America woven within the framework of history. Because so much of the story is based on actual people and events from the Eastern Shore of Virginia, it is like the print version of a docudrama. An Appendix at the end of the book delineates the facts from fiction by chapter.

Overview

Ribbon of Love is a beautiful romantic story of colonial America woven within the framework of history. Because so much of the story is based on actual people and events from the Eastern Shore of Virginia, it is like the print version of a docudrama. An Appendix at the end of the book delineates the facts from fiction by chapter.

REVIEW FROM READER: After retiring as a college professor in 2010, I have become a serious genealogist and that makes early American history come alive for me. While Ribbon of Love is a novel, I found the history and descriptions to be on target and accurate.
Ribbon of Love was a wonderful love story of Henry and Mary living and struggling to succeed as one of the first families in the colony of Virginia in the 1600s. In addition to the love story, the descriptions of the clothing, home furnishings, personalities, family life, church and community are most intriguing. The exhilarating action and subplots keep the reader in constant anticipation. It is almost impossible to put the book down until completion.

Coming from diverse cultural backgrounds and separated from Jamestown by the Chesapeake Bay, the settlers of 'Ye Kingdom of Accawmacke' utilized the distance to avoid laws and restrictions imputed on early colonists and created an almost utopia existence among the friendly Indians.

Actual court records dating back to the early1630's provide historical fodder for the Pattendens' personal story, and gives the reader an accurate yet fictionalized love story and view of what life may have been like in colonial America. Based on actual residents of the Eastern Shore of Virginia, Ribbon of Love reveals a glimpse of America's future before the Revolutionary war and what the nation will become.
