Redemption, Julie Chibbaro's first novel, is a great historical novel set in the 1500's in England. Lily Applegate and her mother travel to the New World to escape persecution from the baron, who says they must give up their land, and to find her father, who was forced to leave England and sent to the New World. On the ship, Lily meets Ethan, the baron's son, and learns that the baron is on the ship too. She finds out a shocking secret about her mother, and has to stay strong for the both of them. Once they get to the New World, she and Ethan become separated from her mother, and they set out on a dangerous quest to find her, along the way being captured by Indians.
I loved reading this book. Lily is such an amazing and strong character, and Julie Chibbaro has done a good job telling her story.
Anyone who enjoys historical fiction should definitely read this book.
