Poison In The Colony


Poison in the Colony: James Town 1622

SKU: 39357 Category:


400 years ago, a girl had an agonizing choice. Save her colony…or save herself.

After the colony of James Town is founded in 1607. After Captain John Smith established trade with the Native Americans. After Pocahontas befriends the colonists. After early settlers both thrive and die…a girl is born.

Virginia Laydon, an infant at the end of Blood on the River, has now grown up in James Town, a colony that is teetering dangerously on the precipice of conflict with the native Algonquins. Virginia has the gift, or the curse, of the knowing – an ability that could help save the colony, and is equally likely to land her at the burning stake as an accused witch.

Filled with authentic details, real people, and true danger, Poison in the Colony brings to life a significant time in American history.
