Book Review, Tour, and Giveaway: "Aboard Providence" by Keely Brooke Keith

About the Book

Aboard Providence - Cover

In November 1860, Jonah Ashton boarded the Providence with a plan to escort his family to their new settlement in South America and then return to medical school in Pennsylvania before rumors of Southern rebellion erupt into all-out war. What he didn’t count on was getting lost at sea and falling in love. When they finally reach land, Jonah makes a startling discovery that changes everything, but will it change his heart?

My Thoughts

I honestly didn't remember signing up for this tour so when I got the welcome letter, I was surprised. I am, however, glad that I got the chance to participate in the tour and read this terrific book. I was quickly drawn into the story and the lives of the characters and read it in a day. The descriptions of the conditions on the ship helped you to understand how it must have been to have traveled in those conditions, but without being oppressive or too graphic. Once the settlers reached the Land, I wanted to know whether it was a real place and what was going on. I wanted to know more about what happened to them. I was happy to discover that "Aboard Providence" was written to give the history of how the Land was settled as a back story to the Uncharted series that Keely Brooke Keith has written. I will definitely be reading them!

Guest Post from Keely Brooke Keith

The Uncharted series has a past…
The Uncharted storyline begins in the 21st Century in a hidden land that was settled in the 1860s by Americans. Throughout the Uncharted books, the characters refer to their founders’ history. Soon after the release of The Land Uncharted, readers expressed their desire for more. Why did the founders leave America in 1860? How did they plan the group migration? Where did they believe they were going? How did they establish what is now a fascinating culture?
I too was drawn by the founders’ story. When I set out to write it, I enjoyed fleshing out the mystery of how the founders arrived in the Land and what it was like for them, not only for the characters who wanted that adventure, but also those who didn’t. I became swept away on a journey of faith, sacrifice, and God’s unfailing provision.
The result is Aboard Providence (CrossRiver Media, 2016).
Join the founders as they embark on their voyage to an uncharted land.
