Is there life beyond death? Perhaps so-according to most religions, literature, and even today's fiction, movies, and television. Long before pop culture embraced ghost whispering or seeing dead people, Maurine and Margaret Moon were talking with individuals on the next plane of existence. One of their closest friends there, Jude Wedge, tells his story here. His recollections of life in colonial America give fascinating insights into the details of hardships faced by those who left England in search of religious freedom in the New World.
The characters in this book are determined to carve out a better life for themselves and their families as they face challenges in an unknown land. Our hero, Jim, a driven, hard-working man who insists on doing things his way, and his wife, Jenny, a red-headed, fiery, and intelligent companion, struggle with the tasks of working the land, child rearing, and managing a frontier household. Her Ladyship and Captain offer their knowledge and wisdom as the young family toils to clear land, build a home, and plant crops in rough country.
And what lies beyond? Wedge offers a glimpse that raises as many questions as it provides answers.
