Mercia Blakewood’s second thrilling adventure, Puritan follows on from the events of Birthright, but can be read as a stand-alone novel.
Released in January 2017, Puritan is available in hardback and ebook now.
New England, Autumn, 1664. . .
Following adventures she would sooner forget in the newly renamed New York, Mercia Blakewood is hopeful that she has gained the leverage with the King she needs to reclaim her family’s home back in England. The breathtaking new world piques her curiosity and a burgeoning friendship with Clemency Carter, a local medicine woman, prompts Mercia to delay her return. Navigating an unknown landscape, the aftershocks still felt of revolution and restoration, and the uneasy relationship between the Puritan settlers and native Indians, proves complex. But when the virgin forests of New England are tainted by murder, Mercia will not rest until the killer is brought to justice.
