Rebecca Fraser's just-published book about the Mayflower sheds new light on a family caught up in all the perils of crossing the ocean and settling in the wilderness. But the story did not end there. All settlers had to become linguists, traders, and explorers, and yet not forget their roots and customs from the old country. With the aid of exciting contemporary documents, Rebecca Fraser brings to life the adventures of an ordinary family, the Winslows, made less ordinary by their responses to the challenges of the New World. Written with the pace of an epic, this is a story that is both national but intimate and human, chronicling the Winslows as they made the painful decisions that ensured their survival in America.

Rebecca Fraser is a British researcher, writer, editor, journalist, and broadcaster and a member of a family of noted historians, including her sister, Flora; her mother, Lady Antonia Fraser, and her grandmother, Elizabeth Longford. Rebecca Fraser's previous work includes a biography of Charlotte Bronte, which put Charlotte in her proper context by examining her life within the framework of contemporary attitudes to women. Her most recent book, The Story of Britain, has been described as "an elegantly written, impressively well-informed single-volume history of how England was governed during the past 2000 years."
