    One thought on “The Colonists”

    1. As your thrown into a different generation of Morgan's, you feel a little like you have to play catch up. Your having to suddenly learn new people when you were expecting "pick up where you left off". It's disorienting a little. This one also seems to have a slower, less appealing start than the first book. It's worth it though. Keep reading. At the end, I'm wanting book three. I just have to buy it first lol

    2. Once again I enjoyed the fast paced fiction part of the story. I also loved learning more about that time period. He included little know facts, or those not commonly taught in school, and this just made the story more interesting.

    3. I love historical fiction and fount The Colonists to be an excellent example of the genre. However, I felt some elements of the character portrayals were lacking. It's quickly understood and portrayed that the Morgan siblings do not get a long but I didn't see that the reason for the discord was well established. Priscilla is portrayed in the begining as self centered, almost shrewish girl who nonetheless has a complete understanding and heart for the Bible. This just didn't ring true to me. Her [...]

    4. I wanted to like this book more than I actually liked it. :-/ It wasn't awful, but it wasn't a fabulous read either.The Good: It's a good, wholesome story where good triumphs over evil. There's also the bonus of somewhat accurate historical facts thrown in.The Eh: The characters are a littlerdboard. They are not particularly round or dynamic, which makes for a much less satisfying story. Then there were the anachronisms The speech (the level of informality is what I mean here, not the actual lin [...]

    5. Another historical blockbusterWho knew history could be do interesting, exciting and romantic. Someone please tell me why they did not not assign these books for at lease book reports when we were in school , maybe junior high?. Believe me I would have learned a lot more history!

    6. Ok, this is another book that I think is the best in the whole world!!! And I'm not kidding--it is the BEST!!! It is packed full of adventure, action, suspense, romance, and the best thing about it is you can never predict what will happen! There is fiction in it, but at the same time there is actual facts, sayings, speeches, people and ect.t! It didn't take me that long to read ether's so good you just can't put it down! And I think it's a very worth while book. It's such an amazing story!!! Th [...]

    7. This one was really long and took me a while to get through, but it was really good. I love historical fiction and this one was true to the time period (and had lots of neat little facts inserted in the story) without reading like a history lecture. The plot was amazing and had all sorts of twists and turns I didn't see coming, and you become quite attached to all the characters just a few chapters in. Overall an excellent read and I would recommend this book to anyone (as long as you have the t [...]

    8. This is the second volume of the American Family Portrait series, and I found it an enjoyable Christian historical fiction book. It did surprise me that there is a considerable gap of time between volume I and volume II; I expected it to continue where the first one left off. Later, I began to realize that there had to be major lapses of time because of the length of history the series covers. Tension is often fierce, and the story is sometimes very detailed, but the reader definitely understand [...]

    9. Great story line, intriguing characters. I learned a lot about the history of the early colonists, and even learned some very interesting facts about pirates in the 18th century. The middle part of the book alternates telling the story of three siblings, living completely separate lives in different parts of the world, but it's still easy to follow.

    10. Not as captivating as the first but it keeps you wanting to read the next one Still a great book and again the facts included really keep the reader grounded with the reality(ies) of that time! Oh, and again I read the "Victor editions" of the series.

    11. Dit tweede deel uit deze serie greep mij nog meer aan dan het eerste deel. Prachtig om te lezen over de rivaliteit binnen een gezin, het geloof in God en hoe dit uiteindelijk weer naar de liefde toe leidt. Spanning, avontuur, hartstocht, alles komt aan bod in dit boek. Ik ben fan!

    12. Insightful into colonial thought about education, native Americans, and the downward spiral spiritually before the Great Awakening.
