Roanoke, by Angela Hunt

Roanoke_s600x595I just finished reading Roanoke: The Lost Colony by Angela Hunt this afternoon. I have always been fascinated by the history of the lost colony of Roanoke, so imagine my surprise when not only did my husband’s job take us to the very island, but one of my favorite authors had written a fictionalization of the mystery!

It was a captivating read, and I loved how the plight and horrible decisions constantly had me shaking my head [or fist]. The subject kept me turning pages, especially since I had already done a bunch of historical reading on the subject already. I’m definitely looking forward to reading the next book in the series, Jamestown.

I believe I read the entire 373-page novel, from cover to cover, in one sitting (6-8 hours) between airplane ride and free time waiting for my writing weekend to begin. Oh blessed day, reading for fun. It has been oh so long since I have had the gumption.

What did you think of my post?
