Book Description

You are standing on a narrow quay-side waiting to board a small sailing ship. You are about to make an exciting but dangerous and uncomfortable voyage…’

So begins the racy and imaginative account of the voyage of the Mayflower which David Gay exciting historical narrative follows the nine week passage for the Pilgrims though the eyes of an imaginary family, Matthew and Martha Lovelace, with their typical children, Justice and Prudence. They encounter such fascinating characters as Master Reynolds, John Howland and William Butten- all of whom really took the Mayflower’s historic voyage. Here are three thousand miles of adventure, written with a sensitive appreciation of God’s care for his people, and of young people’s love for adventure.

    I just read this book as a 41 year old man. I encourage other adults to read it as well. Would I have had the courage for that 9 week journey across the Atlantic in 1620? I appreciated how the author used the application of Scripture in the character of Mr Lovelace; how he governed his family and ministered to others in a strong way.
