Cate of the Lost Colony by Lisa M. Klein
Release Date: October 12, 2010
Bloomsbury USA
"The greatest unsolved mystery of American history--what happened to all the colonists who landed on Roanoke Island in 1587? This novel traces the fortunes and misfortunes of one Cate Archer, banished to Virginia by a jealous Queen Elizabeth because of her dalliance with Sir Walter Ralegh. What will be her fate in this dangerous New World?"
I've always been a fan of historical fiction (as soon as I read the Little House books I was hooked), and the mystery of the Roanoke colony is an episode in history that has always intrigued me. I'm really looking forward to this book. What book are you waiting for?


  1. The Roanoke mystery is quite fascinating - it's a great historical setting for a novel! I liked Lisa Klein's Ophelia so I'm hoping this one will be good as well :)

  2. What an interesting story...I have to confess to knowing nothing about the Roanoke mystery. Thanks for highlighting this :)
