Summary
It's 1737, and 19-year-old Anna Konig joins the first wave of Amish to America. Anna can speak English so she translates for the group. Conditions on the "Charming Nancy" are deplorable for the immigrants who are forced to live below the deck. Anna's charge, young Felix, is not content to stay below deck and explores the entire ship getting into mischief but eventually befriending the ship's carpenter, Bairn. Bairn and Anna soon develop feelings for each other.
Critique
Based on actual events, the first entry in the Amish Beginnings series is an interesting tale with lots of period detail.
