Review: Mary (Daughters of the Lost Colony #2) by:Shannon McNear

 Mary (Daughters of the Lost Colony #2)

 About the Book:

Immerse yourself in the “what if” questions related to the Lost Colony of Roanoke. What if an English boy and a native girl met in the wilderness? The push-and-pull between two very different worlds begins as one seeks simple friendship and the other struggles to trust. And can it—dare they—allow it to be more?

Sparks fly between Mushaniq, free-spirited daughter of Manteo, and Georgie Howe, whose father was brutally murdered by undiscovered native warriors before they’d been on Roanoac Island a full week. As Georgie struggles to make sense of his life and to accept that not all they call “savage” are guilty of his father’s death, Mushaniq grapples with her own questions about who Manteo has become. As tentative friendship becomes more, forged in the fire of calamity and attack upon their community, both must decide whether the One True God is indeed who He claims to be and whether He is worthy of their trust.

My Review:

 So if you are into a lot of the colony type stories or movies or even TV shows---this book series is for you. I feel like this book could be a stand alone type book. But with all due respect you really need to start with the first book in the series, Elinor. It gives you Elinor's background and how she came to be and then we have this lovely addition to the series, Mary. Just some really good stuff!

 Just when you think all is well and this is a "cupcakes and rainbows" type story for Mary you will quickly find that it is not. Mary had it tough. She couldn't decide who to trust and who was out to get her. She was always on guard. But she soon meets someone that will change all of that. thankfully it couldn't happen fast enough.The wilderness isn't a safe place for a young woman.

 Even though there were many challenges for Mary and Georgie, they made it work and were able to live and tell about it.

Great read!
