Product Description

When Anna Konig first meets Bairn, the Scottish ship carpenter of the Charming Nancy, their encounter is anything but pleasant. Anna is on the ship only to ensure the safe arrival of her loved ones to the New World. Hardened by years of living at sea, Bairn resents these somber people - dubbed "Peculiars" by deckhands - across the ocean. As delays, storms, illness, and diminishing provisions afflict crew and passengers alike, Bairn finds himself drawn to Anna's serene nature. For her part, Anna can't seem to stay below deck and far away from the aloof carpenter, despite warnings.

When an act of sacrifice leaves Anna in a perilous situation, Bairn discovers he may not have left his faith as firmly in the past as he thought. But has the revelation come too late?

Publisher's Description

When Anna König first meets Bairn, the Scottish ship carpenter of the Charming Nancy, their encounter is anything but pleasant. Anna is on the ship only to ensure the safe arrival of her loved ones to the New World. Hardened by years of living at sea, Bairn resents toting these naïve farmers--dubbed "Peculiars" by deckhands--across the ocean. As delays, storms, illness, and diminishing provisions afflict crew and passengers alike, Bairn finds himself drawn to Anna's serene nature. For her part, Anna can't seem to stay below deck and far away from the aloof ship's carpenter, despite warnings.

When an act of sacrifice leaves Anna in a perilous situation, Bairn discovers he may not have left his faith as firmly in the past as he thought. But has the revelation come too late?

    A wonderful historical fiction. It is a story of Amish and Mennonites coming to America from Germany on the Charming Nancy. It is a story of Anna who is the only one who speaks English and she is there interpreter. She meets Bairn the ships carpenter.She begins to have feelings for him, and him for her but she knows this is wrong and can not happen. It is the struggle her people have on the ship with hardships from weather and conditions of the trip. It is a beautiful story of faith and there love for God. Can not wait to read the second book in the series.

    I loved the historical facts mixed in with the fictional characters to create a vivid story of what life must have been like on an overcrowded ship sailing to a New World for religious freedom. The written word is almost magical in that you can taste the salt water and imagine the vile stench and relief when rain fell. The heartbreak makes you cry and the unexpected joy in the midst is amazing. The characters are real with scars both physical and mental, but with an undeniable faith in God. This is a book that pulls on your heartstrings and speaks to your heart at the same time. I give it five hearts instead of five stars.

    I won a copy of Anna's Crossing from the author in a giveaway. The honest review and opinions are my own and were not required.

    Suzanne Woods Fisher does a great job writing a historical account of members of the Amish church in Ixheim, Germany making their way to America in 1737.

    Ms Fisher keeps you captivated with the lives of Anna, who went reluctantly because she was the only one to speak English, and the other members, the antics of young Felix Bauer, and the crew of the Charming Nancy, especially Bairn the carpenter, during the long trip across the Atlantic in less than desirable conditions.

    There were also a couple of surprises along the way. One young wife failed to mention that she was expecting for fear she and her husband wouldnt be allowed to make the trip. There wasnt a doctor or midwife amongst themAnna had to deliver the baby. Shed never done that before. How did mother and baby fare?

    Another surprise is the real identity of the ships carpenter Bairn. Read this well-written story of these brave Amish men, women, and children, and life on the Charming Nancy.

    I believe this is the first story I have read about any of the early colonists crossing the Atlantic Ocean to start a new life in the New World. I studied the subject matter in school but the textbooks skimmed the surface. What little I knew about the subject dealt primarily with the Pilgrims and the first settlers to arrive in Jamestown. Very little was said about the settling of Pennsylvania although Philadelphia had a key role later in the eighteenth century. Aside from comments that the journey was challenging and many died, I dont recall hearing details about what made it so difficult. This story is fiction but the author sought to make the details of what the passengers endured to make the voyage as authentic as possible. Suzanne Woods Fisher is a masterful author who writes in a way that draws the reader into the story with all five senses fully engaged. Frankly, I am glad that I was not really there even though I almost felt that I was. For one who so desperately wanted to stay in Germany, Anna showed far more strength of character than most of the other passengers and crew. She was not perfect but she had a goal and kept focused on surviving in order to fulfill that goal. Young Felix kept things lively with his constant meanderings all over the ship and his penchant for getting into mischief. Bairn seemed to be a mystery even to himself at times, but he seemed well-suited for his job. Several other characters helped to keep the story moving as key events unfolded. The strong faith of the Peculiars, as many called the early Amish and Mennonites, was the foundation that played a key role in the story. Even if you are not into romance stories, I recommend you read this book to get a better understanding of what many of our forefathers went through to come to this land we call home.
