Books of the Month: the Keepers of the Ring Series

Oh, my! September first crept up on me! Thanks for the reminder that it's time for another Book of the Month!

A good thing, too--I've been working on Fairlawn hard, long, and late, so I like I don't have anything new to say, blogwise. So I'm delighted to talk about a book--actually, a series--that is already done!

This month we're going to look at the KEEPERS OF THE RING series, published by Tyndale House. These books are out of print at this moment, but they're around--new and used are still being sold on

The series includes five titles: Roanoke, the Lost Colony, Jamestown, Hartford, Rehoboth, and Charles Towne. Here's a review and overview from Library Journal:

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. Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc.
