Today's Free Download: Roanoke (The Keeper of the Rings) by Angela Hunt

As an annual visitor to the Outer Banks, I am fascinated by books about The Lost Colony. We have seen the outdoor drama, and I highly recommend you see it at least once if you're down there. This book caught my eye because it has a unique story line. It's also free right now!

In 1587, a fleet of English ships set sail for the Virginia colony. During a storm, one ship became separated from the others and was never seen again. The settlers on board were presumed lost at sea, but there is both historical and legendary evidence that the colonists actually founded the Roanoke colony.

Veteran novelist Hunt ("Theyn Chronicles") reimagines this slice of Colonial history through the eyes of Jocelyn White, a newlywed reluctant to leave her home in England for the wild shores of the New World. White's journey is fraught with danger, but her dependence on God and God's providence carry her safely through. Hunt's engaging historical romance will appeal to fans of B.J. Hoff and Patricia Hickman.
