Overview

In 1587, a group of colonists set sail from England, bound for Virginia, to establish the first English colony in the New World. They never made it to Virginia, but settled on Roanoke Island. John White, the colony's founder, sailed away, promising to return. By the time he did return, the colonists had vanished.

Angela Hunt has pieced together historical records, folklore, and fact to create this compelling story of what most likely did happen to the colonists on Roanoke Island, while at the same time weaving a tale of God's mercy and grace.

    An Incredible Journey Back in Time

    What an absolutely fantastic book. I have never read a book, and each time returning to read thought I had been watching this on a movie. The book brings every event so to life that you really think you are watching it as it happens. It is a wonderful history filled book with a great love story thrown in. You feel like you have taken the journey with the Englishmen to find, explore and later settle in Roanoke. Can't wait to read the second volume. The book has left me wanting more. A must read journey through time.

    Captivating story

    Roanoke The Lost Colony, by Angela Elwell Hunt, was a well-written and interesting story. It is about Jocelyn's difficult life, and willingness to trust. At first I did not think I would like this book because it looked as though it were a historical fiction. My aunt got it for me though, so I started to read it. As I was reading I realized it wasn't that bad. It is mostly a fictional story based on minor history details. The further into the book I got, the more captivating it seemed to get. This story has unexpected twists. The most explained theme in this book was to do what is best for your loved ones, even if it hurts you. These actions are repeated throughout the story. Another point in the story is to have faith in the people you love, even if they seem to not love you. The character that agitated me was Thomas Colman. His religious stubbornness and headstrong attitude made him resist the very person he loved most. It was frustrating when he wouldn't do the natural thing most people would do. But, I couldn't stop reading. Really though, should one have to beg their spouse for love? As the story goes on, more morals surface. One is that you cannot deny love to your child. No matter what that child may represent. Henry Ward Beecher once said, "There is no friendship, no love, like that of the parent for the child." Another is that you should not give up hope in dark times. The characters could have "given up", but instead pressed on as best as they could, and adapted to changing conditions, not thinking of all the ways they could fail. Baudjuin said, "No matter how hard you work for success, if your thought is saturated with the fear of failure, it will kill your efforts, neutralize your endeavors and make success impossible. This story will totally enclose you to a point where you don't realize you are reading. The book was written to visualize. As characters feel emotions expressed through the text, you do too. You will find yourself wanting something to happen your way, even though you realize you cannot change what has already been written. That is why this book is so great. The book shows how God's forgiveness restores Jocelyn's faith and Thomas' well being. I recommend this story and its sequels. They contain everything you want in a good book.
