I had never heard about the Lost Colony of Roanoke, specifically, although I realized there were English colonists prior to those who landed on Plymouth Rock. I found this book extremely interesting after the first several chapters. The author did a fairly good job of piecing together what might have happened to these early colonists. Although the title hinted to the outcome, the book still grabbed my emotions as the story unfolded and left me crying real tears . . .

From the religious standpoint, it was interesting to see the the "debate" between legalistic living and liberty played out between the main characters. In the end, love truly casts out fear and conquers all.
