Hutchinson, 1960, Vintage Hardback – Historical Fiction – 288pp. Scarce copy. More commonly published as ” Pilgrims in Paradise”. Gift-inscription inside.

It was a cold winter day in the England of 1647, and Paul Sutton, a young doc­tor, began to feel the lure of the tropics. But when he signed on as medical officer to a shipload of pilgrims bound for the Bahamas, the beckoning attractions spelled far more than escape—for Paul knew that the pilgrims’ leader, his own brother, was a religious fanatic.

Throughout the journey, Paul tried to help and understand his brother, Silas, for he knew the resolve that mo­tivated the Puritan band to seek a new home. But despite his efforts, Paul soon found himself enveloped in the torment of a deep and forbidden love for the beautiful Anne Trevor, his brother’s fiancée.

With its remarkable portrait of a religious zealot bent on carrying the cause of the non-conformists to the New World, of the settlement and incipient rebellion against Silas’ iron rule, of bigotry, superstition and passion, of war and trial for life, is rewarding and realistic reading—another in Frank G. Slaughter’s long line of successful novels.
