Item description for Plymouth: A Light Enkindled by Jamie Ogle...
Destiney Ellsworth, a young Puritan girl, leaves the comforts of her home in Leyden, Holland, to set off with her family on a quest for religious freedom and a new beginning. But none of them know the dangers and hardships-even death-that lay before them in the New World. Judah Bennet, the captain's young indentured servant, is finding his first ocean voyage to be a great adventure-that is, until he uncovers a mutinous plot against the captain. A sudden twist of fate reveals a long kept secret of his past, and Judah suddenly finds himself plunged into a fast-paced and dangerous mission. 'Jamie's book will captivate your imagination, inspire your life and envelope your heart. It is a voyage of relentless hardship which is overcome with faith, love, and family. This truly inspires reflection and an appreciation for our personal blessings.' - Phillip Hoey

Plymouth A Light Enkindled Oct 8, 2008
First I want to say the review by Mayflower "vi" was spot on..I had to check to make sure I hadn't reviewed it myself already, her words were very close to what I would have written. I also feel this country has lost it's way with everything happening as it is, but if we can get back the fighting spirit as the folks did in this book, we can win..This is a great book for family reading and with Thanksgiving coming up it would be a good time to read it as a family, and maybe instill in the young folk what it really takes to be a true American. Loved the book, and I am anxiously waiting for Jamie Ogle's next novel.
Wonderful! Meditative! Real! Pulsating! Decent! Aug 10, 2007
I loved this book. From the very beginning, it captivated me and I felt like I knew these people personally and could feel their joys, sorrows, pains, agonies, and accomplishments. It truly does get the Pilgrims off of the table with the Thanksgiving Turkey and the gourds and reminds you of the sacrifices and hardships they endured (along with the love and twists and turns of life everyone has) to get to a new land to have freedom. If there was a ship in town right now, I'd be on it. You feel good when you are done reading it, as it is truth. It also brings you back to earth and makes you thankful. We take alot for granted, and as I spent time with these women and men, I realized we do alot of whining. These people had more than enough reasons to whine, yet, they forged on, fighting for life and falling in love despite their circumstances. They also were not compromising. Integrity, honor, decency, and excitement! LOVE IT! It's a great book for young people as well.
