Good historical fiction for young readers. Dec 17 2004
By Rebecca Herman - Published on
Format: Paperback
When thirteen-year-old Elizabeth Tilley and her parents board the Mayflower in 1620, they have high hopes for a better life in the New World. Although they are not Puritan Separatists like many of the passengers, the Tilleys have few economic opportunities in England. But after a long and difficult sea voyage, the Mayflower arrives in Cape Cod in the dead of winter. On deck one night, Elizabeth sees Dorothy Bradford, one of the other passengers, standing by the railing, but tells no one. The next morning, Dorothy has disappeared, presumed drowned. Elizabeth feels terrible guilt and is determined to hide her secret, fearing blame. Soon after, both of Elizabeth's parents die from disease. Elizabeth feels all alone, without family and with few friends, and burdened by the terrible secret she hides.

This was a good historical novel about the voyage on the Mayflower and the settling of Plymouth colony. Elizabeth Tilley was a real passenger on the Mayflower, and the authors did a good job at imagining what her life might have been like in the first years of the colony. I would recommend this book to young readers who enjoy stories about Colonial America and the Pilgrims.

Love reading to learn history! May 29 2013
By Mom of 7 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
We love the Trailblazer books, and the way we can learn history through a story. Although this wasn't the most exciting of the adventures we've read, and maybe it would have been more exciting for a girl, my son and I enjoyed the story. It's nice and sends a good message. Especially enjoyed reading the author's connection to the Pilgrims at the end of the book.

Fun story May 31 2013

This story accented our history lesson, giving us a different point of view of the Mayflower story. Good for ages 9-14.
I love it! Nov. 6 2015

I love it, but I might be prejudiced. This book is about William Bradford, John Howland, and Elizabeth Tilley Howland, my eighth great-grandparents.
