Book Review: The Honorable Imposter

Author: Gilbert Morris

They Had a Faith, a Vision, a Dream of Freedom That Both Enthralled and Frightened Him Could He Trust Them With His Entire Future?
Forced by his family to become a minister in the Church of England, Gilbert Winslow is offered a dangerous and challenging task by one of the most powerful nobles in Britain. Taking the post offers fortune and escape from a life he despises, but Winslow discovers it also means becoming a spy. His mission is to infiltrate a group of religious separatists and to ferret out the whereabouts of their leader, who is accused of dissention against the King.
In spite of his initial uneasiness, infiltration proves to be an easy matter. But will the ultimate betrayal be so simple? With the influences of good and evil, faith and doubt, compassion and selfishness pulling him apart, to whom could he turn?
With the Sailing of the Mayflower, Forces Were Unleashed Which Would Set the Course for One Man, His Family, and Eventually a Whole Nation.

This is the first book in the House of Winslow series. It's the only one I've read (I'm reading the second book right now!)
I would highly recommended it! It puts a whole new light on the Mayflowers  journey, while not changing any of the historical facts and the faith our for-fathers had when they came to this nation. I can't really say much more or I'd ruin the book for y'all! (You wouldn't want THAT, would you??)
I hope y'all read it and tell me what you think!
