Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This rather melodramatic saga, first in the American Dreams series, is unlikely to linger long in the reader's memory. On the ship from England to Jamestown in 1620, orphaned Sarah Douglas's only relative, an aunt, dies of "the fever." Alone, Sarah moves to Martin's Hundred, a settlement near Jamestown, where, disgruntled, she tutors children and eventually plants tobacco in hopes of earning her passage back to England. The plot limps along until close to novel's end, when irate Native Americans stage a bloody attack on the settlement; Sarah, unbelievably, witnesses the carnage from a perch in a tree. Coombs (Saving Casey) closes her tale predictably: the settlers avenge the gruesome assault and Sarah agrees to marry a kind man. Sarah's bond to the New World is thereby cemented, but the story has little to similarly tether the reader's interest. Ages 12-up. (Mar.)
School Library Journal
Gr 6-10Voyaging to America in 1620, Sarah Douglas hates the sight of the Virginia coastline before her and promises herself that she will do whatever is necessary to book passage back to England as soon as possible. The only comfort she feels is the friendship of Anne Bell, a fellow passenger. Anne has come seeking a husband and soon finds a trustworthy, honest man. Each young woman's path leads her to the realities of living in a harsh new environment. Sarah slowly begins to love the countryside as she works hard tutoring young children and eventually planting tobacco on her own land. On her 17th birthday, she witnesses Native Americans brutally attacking people who live around the fort at Martin's Hundred. When the assault is over, Sarah is again determined to leave this land of poverty, disease, and violence. This historical novel presents a lucid and gripping account of the lives of Virginia's early settlerstheir hardships and joys. The characters are fully realized and their passionate actions are involving. The swift pace, distinctive writing, and visually descriptive passages bring readers closer to historical events. YAs will enjoy this first entry in the series and look forward to more.Jana R. Fine, Clearwater Public Library System, FL

    A horrible book that honestly didn't diserve 2 stars.....

    This book was horrible. The main character isn't very believable, and her personality is about as deep as a paper cut. This shouldn't be classified as a romance, because the main character and her 'love' don't even have much time together. Set in the time of Jamestown, everybody dies. And I mean EVERYBODY!!! First there's Sarah's aunt, then her aunt's fiance, then her 'love''s wife (yes, WIFE) dies, then her best friend's husband dies, then indians attack, and her friend, her borders, and about all of Martin's Hundred die!!! It's a depressing book that delievers nothing but a wide-eyed stare that masks the outrageous disappointment. I only gave this book two stars, because it was good writing--horrible story. *DO NOT GET THIS BOOK--I REPEAT, DO NOT GET THIS BOOK*
