It's November 1620, and eleven-year-old Rebekah Cunningham, her parents, and her ten-year-old brother, Will, have survived the long and difficult journey from England to the New World on the Mayflower. But more difficulties await them. They have arrived just as winter is starting, and food supplies are low. They have to continue to live on the ship while their homes are built. Soon sickness breaks out, and Rebekah worries that someone from her own family will become ill. It will take all of Rebekah's faith and courage to bring her through the first harsh winter in the New World and she struggles to be brave enough.
