Description
It's 1587 and twelve-year-old Alis has made the long journey with her parents from England to help settle the New World, the land christened Virginia in honor of the Queen. And Alis couldn't be happier. The streets of London are crowded and dirty. But this new land, with its trees and birds and sky calls to Alis. Here she feels free. But the land, the island Roanoke is also inhabited by the Roanoke tribe and tensions between them and the English are running high, quickly becoming deadly. Amid the strife, Alis meets and befriends Kimi, a Roanoke girl about her age. Despite not even speaking the same language these girls form an impossible bond becoming as close as sisters, willing to risk everything for the other. Finally, Alis must make an impossible choice when her family resolves to leave the island and bloodshed behind. With a beautiful, tender story of friendship and the meaning of family, Caroline Starr Rose delivers another historical gem.
