Left suddenly penniless, the Honorable Sophia Grafton, a viscount's orphaned daughter, sails to the New World to claim the only property left to her name: a tobacco plantation in the remote wilds of colonial Virginia. Enlisting the reluctant assistance of a handsome young French spy - at gunpoint - she gathers an unlikely group of escaped slaves and indentured servants, each seeking their own safe haven in the untamed New World.
What follows will test her courage and that of her companions as they struggle to survive a journey deep into a hostile wilderness and eventually forge a community of homesteads and deep bonds that will unite them for generations.
The first installment in an epic historical trilogy by Helen Bryan, the bestselling author of War Brides and The Sisterhood, The Valley is a sweeping, unforgettable tale of hardship, tenacity, love, and heartache.

Well written but a sad tale.
No, I feel this book is too much of a downer to recommend.
The era it's set is interesting, however, the storyline is pretty depressing from start to finish.
She did a good job on all the characters.
I can't see it getting lighter but who am I to say that others wouldn't have enjoyed the book and will want to see a follow-up. However, I don't see myself looking for one.
The book is well written but it's just not my cup of tea.
