In 1587, Elinor White Dare sailed from England heavy with her first child but full of hopes. Her father, a renowned artist and experienced traveler, has convinced her and her bricklayer husband Ananias to make the journey to the New World. Land, they are promised, more goodly and beautiful than they can ever imagine. But nothing goes as planned from landing at the wrong location, to facing starvation, to the endless wait for help to arrive. And, beyond her comprehension, Elinor finds herself utterly alone. . . .
The colony at Roanoke disappeared into the shadows of history. But, what if one survived to leave a lasting legacy?

    Elinor by Shannon McNear

    Published by Connie Porter Saunders on Dec 06, 2021

    Long ago, I learned of Virginia Dare, the first English child born in the Americas, but there is little else known about her. Author Shannon McNear has written an absorbing tale that allows us to imagine 'what if', and she once again demonstrates her ability to write captivating historical fiction. Elinor White Dare is the title character, and she is Virginia's mother, but there are three men who are strong influences in this story. Elinor's father John White, her husband Ananias, and a native American named Sees Far play major roles in a tale that touches on trials, loss, and a frantic search for loved ones. How could Elinor have endured all that she faced? McNear shares a bibliography and several pages of historical notes so that we can determine fact versus fiction, and it's apparent that she devoted much time and effort to her research. The Lost Colony of Roanoke is a fascinating mystery in our nation's history and reading what might have happened makes it even more intriguing. There is also an emphasis on faith, and I was especially drawn to the faith journey that transpires for Sees Far. I truly enjoyed Elinor, and I loved imagining what might have happened after this book ends. I recommend it to all who enjoy historical Christian fiction. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.
