1 journaler for this copy...
Polly's father is a Baptist minister, so although they live fairly well in England, he seizes the opportunity to take a colony to the United States where they can have religious freedom. But things start to go wrong on the ship that takes them to New York, and Minnesota is not what any of them expected.
Based on the author's family history: Reverend Rodgers was her great-grandfather.
