the jealous queen banishes Cate to Ralegh s colony of Roanoke, in the New World Ralegh pledges to come for Cate, but as the months stretch out, Cate begins to doubt his promise and his love Instead it is Manteo, a I didn t like this much at all, which surprised me as I read and enjoyed this same author s Lady MacBeth s Daughter over a year ago Cate is a lady s maid for the very jealous Queen

romance Elizabeth has a bad reaction and sends Cate to the Tower Walter the romance hmph arranges for her to be sent to the new colony in Virginia, something Cate wants But in Virginia, there is babies born, Indian attacks, and uprisings against the government.Meanwhile though all this, half of the story is told from Walter s POV, his journals, his letters to his ship people, and oh my word, his bloody poetry I loathed him and his parts Again, what kind of romance is this Also, a quarter of the book is told from an Indian s POV who was captured and brough to England and has submitted to the English ways TSTL I didn t like him much either I pitied his situation, but he is so gullible..Thus, a miss for me By the time the exciting things began happening, I was so disgusted with the poetry and how very little of the book is actually about Cate, that I lost interest I bailed with 30 percent left I am grateful to the friend who loaned it to me though.One laugh out loud moment I could not get used to sleeping in a room with men It seemed improper Moreover, they snored and passed wind all night, making the air noisome and keeping me from sleep Okay Wow, that book was just absolutely amazing The writing was soo good and I was always wanting to read it The historical aspect was very fascinating with England and Roanoke and Cate was an outstanding character I really really liked her and I felt like she would have been a feminist of the 16th century and I loved how she could stand up to herself and her feelings and it was all just really well written I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys historical novels or this woul Okay Wow, that book was just absolutely amazing The writing was soo good and I was always wanting to read it The historical

I ve read Cate of the Lost Colony definitely lived up to the high standard set by Ophelia The characters were just as real, the writing was just as good, and Klein s historical accuracy was spot on, as usual Speaking of historical accuracy, I was amazed by the detail that went into Cate of the Lost Colony As a former Global Studies major, I ve taken quite a few history classes, and I m usually able to pick out at least a few minor errors in most historical fiction I wasn t able to to that with this book, which made me very happy I can only imagine how much research Klein put into writing this novel, but it definitely paid off I loved the main character, Cate She was strong and independent, but not so much that she was abrasive or foolish Cate is subject to all of your typical human emotions like love and fear , but she fights very hard to do what she thinks is right and smart, instead of trying to take the easy way out Most important of allshe stays true to herself amidst a sea of intimidating, strong willed and male figures, even though many women of her age would have chosen to stay in the shadows Cate of the Lost Colony is a book I would recommend to readers who tend to stay away from the historical fiction genre In my opinion, Lisa Klein is one of the best historical fiction writers out there Her stories stay true to historical fact, but at the same time, she manages to put her own creative spin on things If there s ever been a writer to make history come alive, it s Lisa Klein I enjoyed Lady Macbeth s Daughter by Klein and I wondered how she would craft Cate of the Lost Colony into a fictional work of art Well, I didn t have to worry because Klein pulled me into another beautifully written work of historical fiction built around events of the Lost Colony of Roanoke It s astounding to read about some of these historical figures and the mysteries surrounding what actually happened to the Colony The detail that was put into creating the characters

pulled me into another beautifully written work of historical fiction built around events of the Lost Colony of Roanoke It s astounding to read about some of these historical figures and the mysteries surrounding what actually happened to the Colony The detail that was put into creating the characters piqued my interest evenas I read about the lives of three protagonists told in alternating viewpoints.Throughout this book, I continued to wonder if the actual figures were like their fictional work I was mesmerized by the politics and inner workings of the Queen s court but I was most intrigued with the characters Cate, full of wonder and questions about the new world finds herself on a dangerous journey of the unknown after falling out of favor with the Queen Sir Walter Ralegh was an interesting individual I was always trying to discern his motives whether they were for the Queen s favor, Catherine s affections or just for monetary gain and fame Manteo, the proud Indian was a delightful character I enjoyed reading all about his views on his people and the English and how he was always trying to find ways to make peace between the two Klein did a great job with the characters in this book Cate of the Lost Colony is a well crafted novel filled with political intrigue, adventure, and great characters This book intertwines beautifully with fact and fiction I think readers of historical fiction will enjoy this book just as much as Klein s previous books I look forward to readingof Klein s novels
