In The Jamestown Brides, Jennifer Potter spins a fascinating tale of courage and survival, exploring the women's lives in England before their departure and their experiences in Jamestown.

In telling the story of these "Maids for Virginia" Potter sheds light on life for women in early modern England and in the New World. Hardcover book, 384 pages.
