My Thoughts
This book is part of the Uncharted Series, but I did not feel confused or left out having not read anything else in the series. Aboard Providence brings the story of family traveling to lands unknown. It's really about their daily lives, and the ups and downs of that life. There is some mystery, some unknowns-but that's kind of life. In other words, it's not hard to believe the story. There's no falling madly in love and getting married in 3 days kind of thing in the story line. This is an easy, light read for a love story, but there ARE technical bits. You can tell the author certainly did her research into ships!

The characters are believable and well written. Their personalities evolve throughout the book, and they really come to life on the pages. Jonah's niece reminds me of a little girl I used to babysit!

Overall, it is well written and flows nicely. It's clean, and crisp, with a nice use of imagery. I did not find it boring, or anxiety provoking. I found it comfortable, entertaining, and easy to read.

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?

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.
