From Ruth of Boston. . .
“TRULY IT SEEMS A GREAT UNDERTAKING to journey from London into the land of America, yet I have done so, and because of there being very few girls only twelve years of age who are likely to make such a voyage, it seems to me well if I set down those things which I saw and did that might be interesting to myself in the future, when I shall have grown to be an old lady, if God permits, or to any other who may come upon this diary.”
So begins the compelling and historically-accurate Ruth of Boston, the story of a 12-year-old girl who in 1630 sailed from London to America with her father, whose intent was to spread the gospel and build a town.
