The Rising Shore-Roanoke

Read an excerpt here:

The Rising Shore - Roanoke
They sailed to the edge of the world ...

Here is the story of THE LOST COLONY told by two women who sail from London to the wild American shore in 1587. Elenor Dare is daughter of the governor and mother of the first English child born in North America. Margaret Lawrence is her servant. Both struggle bravely, angling against each other, to discover and grasp their dreams.

This was the very first English attempt to establish a foothold in the New World. Historically, the expedition's governor sailed back to London for supplies and returned three years later to find no trace of the hundred colonists he'd left on Roanoke Island. Their fate remains a haunting mystery.
