Publisher's Summary

In 1607, three ships arrive on the coast of Virginia to establish Jamestown Colony. One girl's life - and the lives of her people - are changed forever.
To Pocahontas and her people, the Tidewater is the rightful home of the Powhatan tribe. To England it is Virginia Territory, fertile with promise, rich with silver and gold. As Jamestown struggles to take root, John Smith knows that the only hope for survival lies with the Powhatan people. He knows, too, that they would rather see the English starve than yield their homeland to invaders. In the midst of this conflict, Pocahontas, the daughter of the great chief, forges an unlikely friendship with Smith. Their bond preserves a wary peace - but control can rest only in one nation's hands. When that peace is broken, Pocahontas must choose between power and servitude - between self and sacrifice - for the sake of her people and her land.
Revised edition: This edition of Tidewater includes editorial revisions.

Riveting book

Libbie Hawker has produced a wonderful story about a pivotal time in the history of the settlement of New England.I liked the structure,using the first person voice for each of the main characters,and using s different actors for the parts.I understand the book was written quickly and I think it reflects a refreshing freshness,without in any way detracting from the quality of the writing.Libbie says she would write a sequel in 2016-let's hope she does as I will be one of the first to read it.
