I usually avoid historical fiction as I find that many authors take too much liberty with historical events or inflict too much modern sensibility upon their historical subjects. I was pleasantly surprised to find the opposite with "Manhattan". The "characters" (based on real people and milestone life events) are sympathetic and wholly believable as real people. The historical details are lovingly inserted throughout the story. Specifically though, I liked best the portrayal of danger and uncertainty that the settlers faced on a daily basis. I never understood this from history books as well as I did through the firsthand narrative.

If you enjoy early colonial history and are looking for a wholesome read, this book is for you. A novel with a real flavor of what it must have been like living back in 17th century Manhattan. I'm looking forward to other books by this author.

This saga includes some intriguing geographic references to familiar locales in and around present day New York. The author imagines the challenges that a pioneering family might well have faced in early Colonial times. In depth character development and clever, but natural, use of Colonial colloquialism bring this tale to life. All in all, a novel that really uplifts the spirit.
