For real, I read this in a day, maybe 3 1/2 hours, and the writing was very poor, though it maybe deserves 3 stars based on its grounding in facts. However I was so constantly thrown off by the writing, trains of thought that pick up out of nowhere, I found myself skipping large sections when it didn't make sense rather than frustrate myself trying to figure it out. I suppose I'll just chalk this one up to historical research of my own.

I broke my rule and now I have to live with the consequences. :( I don't read books out of order, but I had started this series over a decade ago at the public library, and somehow while waiting for the next one to be available, being busy,getting involved in other series, and then eventually switching to digital books, I never kept up with this series. My memory told me that I liked this series, but I couldn't remember which ones I had read or what had happened, so I convinced myself that this ...more

Wonderful Historical Series

The final book in this series, and a page-turner to the very end. I highly recommend this series. If you've ever wondered how our forefathers and mothers worked and suffered to give us this wonderful land to live in, this is the series for you. Be prepared to apologize to every Native American you know once you have read these books.

Exciting Climax

As I am with most series that I rate as 5 stars I wish it was not ending. The characters will have to live on in my mind which is no where near the author's. God bless you for your writing and touching me. Thank you.

Well I didn't know until just now that I had already read a book by this author called Roanoke, which was iffy about But this book turned me around and now I know I have to keep an eye out for Ms. Hunt.

Yes, Charles Towne is a really good book. I saw the ratings on Amazon so I took a chance and got it, having not even reading the blurbs about it. Glad I did. I thought it was going to be about a guy named Charles... Uh, yeah, I was wrong. It is the town our main character Rachelle comes from and i

A review from my old blog (of the whole series) ...

Oh. My. Word. This series is incredible! Of Hunt's three historical series I have to say that this is my absolute favorite.

This series explores the relationship between the English and Indian during the colonial period. The main characters, after the first book, are for the most part of biracial which allows Hunt to explore the choices that such a person would have to face... whether to be English or to be Indian.

At the same time some of the mos
Series Review:

Full of history, this series is very unique in its setting. I have read very few books (Christian or not) about pre-Revolutionary America and I cannot think of a book-outside of the Dear America series-about the Native American/settlers war and conflicts. Covering Roanoke, Jamestown, Hartford, King Philip's War, and the early slave trade, Angela Hunt wrote a very unique series.
I enjoyed some books in the series more than others, and found some parts of the series redundant and far
The end of a satisfying historical saga. This series is similar to Gilbert Morris' style - a clean, positive, Christian account of people whose lives are impacted by the events of American history. There is more exposition than in Morris' works, and more adult themes. But all clean, all great for teen readers.

Their lives belong to the sea now; the vengeful mistress Ocean required their fidelity as payment for the sin committed on her breast.… They would travel the ocean until she claimed

Charles Towne is a WONDERFUL book and completes "The Keepers of the Ring" series. I was sad to see the story end but know that the Bailie's faith in God continued for generations. Angela Hunt has opened my eyes to the treatment of the Indians, black slaves, and hypocrisy which many, many people held then ... and now. But more than that ... the majesty, greatness and faithfulness of our God.

Very interesting story that finishes this series. The girl is told one thing about what happened to her father, then is finally told the truth & goes to find him. Best advice in there is about God's attitude toward an "honest sinner" as opposed to a "righteous hypocrite"
