Penelope: A Novel of New Amsterdam

Penelope, a near penniless young orphan in 1640s Amsterdam, is determined to voyage to New Amsterdam to discover what happened to her father, a sea-going merchant who disappeared there during a get-rich-quick scheme. But she can’t travel without a guardian and her best opportunity is to marry Matthew, who is equally determined to find a new home in America for his English separatist congregation like the Pilgrims did a generation earlier. But neither can imagine the adventures awaiting them across the ocean. Inspired by a true story.
