About the Book

Bound for the New World, an English father of seven dies at sea in 1650. Only the children fulfill their father’s dream in the beginning of the New London colonial settlement. While one descendant goes west to a settlement in Pennsylvania, the Revolutionary War further divides the family. One frontiersman becomes a Loyalist serving with the Butler’s Rangers while most cousins fight for the Patriot cause. This narrative follows the Beebe family who survive the vortex of the Wyoming Valley Massacre (Pennsylvania) and its aftermath at the cost of the breadwinner’s own life. Mary Secord Beebe, mother of seven, escapes the oncoming reprisals of the Continental forces by fleeing to Fort Niagara, NY, British Headquarters. Starting over in a remote village within the Province of Quebec, Canada, one descendant returns to Pennsylvania and eventually homesteads in the Sandhills of Nebraska. Follow this intriguing story of an ordinary family living in extra-ordinary times.
