The Colonists

(The second book in the American Family Portrait series)
A novel by

"Cavanaugh has outdone himself! An awesome read filled with action and adventure!" - 5-Star Review

In 1727 Benjamin Morgan fulfilled his lifelong dream, but he had to die to do it . . . .

His death forces his feuding children to face life's hardships on their own:
Philip, a Harvard academic, is driven to a primitive Indian village to fulfill his father's dying wish;
Priscilla, obstinate and headstrong, is thrust into a world of male-dominated commerce;
Jared, fun-loving and carefree, is shanghaied aboard a pirate ship.

And when a ruthless merchant threatens to steal the family holdings, the three of them must somehow overcome their differences to save everything for which their father lived and died.

From the cobbled streets of colonial Boston, to a Narragansett Indian village, to the Atlantic's high seas, follow the adventures of one of America's first families of faith.

Used by Christian schools and home schools all across the nation.

Christian historical fiction at its best!
