In the early colonies, this country was on a trajectory to become an autocratic theocracy. The battle for democracy and equal rights was sparked by a few characters, who are now a lost and forgotten piece of history. Forefathers & Founding Fathers is an adventure, a love story, and a tale of great persistence, chronicling those few who changed that trajectory and fought to create the template for America. It is a tale that every American should know, and yet, almost none do.
Roll your clocks back 380 years to 1620s London when hard-working and creative Samuel meets Mary, a unique and highly educated woman. Their adventure would lead them to the colonies where they were beaten, ostracized, and sentenced to death for introducing the fundamental principles modern Americans hold dear.
In an entertaining way, this fast-paced novel will make you question your understanding of the founding years of our great nation. Not only did they spark the ideals of democracy 150 years before Jefferson and Adams, these pioneer/patriots created the template our founding fathers used to build this great nation. Even into modern times, the descendants of Samuel and Mary, including General Nathanael Greene, Captain Benjamin Gorton, Julia Ward Howe, Thomas Edison, John Wayne, and Lucille Ball, would continue to mold the nation.
Chicken Soup for the Soul author Mark Victor Hansen proclaims: “This is an eye opening and compelling historic adventure that vibrates with wisdom and insights. I look forward to the movie!”
Whether you are a history buff or not, you will likely find this to be an entertaining, must-read book.
