A friend persuaded me that reading this book would help me to overcome my prejudice against historical fiction – how right he was. I thought I knew the story of The Mayflower but the serious research behind ‘Voices of the Mayflower’ brings the history to life in a thoughtful and entertaining way, revealed through contemporary accounts which provide not only its historical background, but also an insight into some of the passengers on the Mayflower. A fascinating story of love and loss, determination, duplicity, and extraordinary fortitude. I really enjoyed it.
