And things don't get much easier when the cruel Lord Delaware begins to impose strict new laws on the residents of the Jamestown colony, and her father decides to remarry.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-This third book in the series takes place during six months in 1610-11. Lizzie's mother has died, leaving her, Papa, and her twin brother to take care of themselves and the baby. They finally have enough food to eat and the men are working after months of idleness following Captain John Smith's return to England. Lord Delaware has brought supplies and "no one goes hungry" but, under his command, the "new leaders are stern" and "sometimes cruel," which bothers the 10-year-old, and she tells him so. He commends her for her spirit, changes punishments for certain crimes, and even suggests that she would make a great governor some day. And Papa marries Mistress Whistler, who promises Lizzie that she will not try to replace her mother. Beautifully written, this story gives children a glimpse of colonial life through the eyes of a warm, spunky, and heroic young girl, and introduces them to figures such as Pocahontas and Captain John Smith as well.-Leslie Barban, Richland County Public Library, Columbia, SC Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
