Overview

American colonists Henry Pattenden and his wife, 16 year old, Mary (Willson) Pattenden, are forced to flee from the Star Chamber in England to America for their survival in the early 17th century where they face additional perils and hardship.

Actual court records dating back to the early 1630's create historical accuracy as the reader is taken back to the primitive days of colonial America where the Pattendens encounter difficulties with Indians, starvation, ducking stools, illness, massacres, death, loneliness, love, greed but triumph over all and become true American pioneers.

Coming from diverse cultural backgrounds and separated from the mainland by the Chesapeake Bay, the real world of the settlers of "Ye Kingdom of Accawmacke" is revealed and secrets about America's history are discovered in this well-researched novel.

REVIEW FROM READER: In addition to the love story, I found your descriptions of the clothing, home furnishings, personalities, family life, church and community to be most intriguing. The exhilarating action and subplots keep the reader in constant anticipation. It is almost impossible to put the book down until completion.

While your book is a novel, I found the history and descriptions to be on target and accurate."

    Ribbon of Love was such a good book.................did not want

    Ribbon of Love was such a good book.................did not want to put it down. Author Donna Causey did an amazing job of researching her ancestors in order to write such an interesting book. I can't wait till the sequel is released, hopefully this summer. I believe the title is Faith and Courage. With vacation time coming up, I plan to get it on Kindle.
