Mercy Clifton: Pilgrim Girl

David Manuel (Author) Sheldon Maxwell (Author)
& 2 more


The 1620 storm-tossed voyage of the Mayflower is the worst experience of Mercy Clifton's sixteen years. She and her parents are Pilgrims, bound for the New World, where they can worship God in peace. Relying on her friends, Elizabeth and Priscilla, and the affection of an English Springer Spaniel named Loyal, Mercy survives the crossing and their first perilous months in America. But she is tested through painful loss, her attraction to the handsome but disturbing Jack Billington, and the perils of living in a danger-filled wilderness. Mercy faces her greatest challenge when she and her Indian friend Amie make an ominous discovery. Young rebels in the colony have so provoked the Native Americans that all-out war seems certain.

"This book is based upon the real-life story 13-year old Mary Chilton, who sailed on the Mayflower in 1620. Aimee Lilly narrates with believable emotion. Listeners will feel as if they're actually listening to an older Mercy Clifton describing how rough the voyage was across the Atlantic. Will things ever get better? Soon enough, listeners are transported back to the early settlements in the New World. This production is an excellent way to introduce children to that world and inspire history to come alive in their minds."
