This easy-to-read illustrated book was recently released and is a wonderful story of one of America’s founding families.
This story tells of the early days of John Wing as he goes to Oxford University in England to study theology.
As a non-conformist minister, John Wing traveled through Europe as he escaped religious prosecution in England under the courts of Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth I. He intended to travel to the American colonies but died before he could achieve that trip.
His wife and sons made the trip several years later and arrived in Boston, an event that was notable enough to be entered into the diary of John Winthrop, governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. The Widow Wing and her sons first settled in Plymouth Colony and then moved and helped found Sandwich, Massachusetts on Cape Cod.

Each book in the Fairies of Carlow series stands alone with a glimpse at the continuing stories of previous characters. It’s almost like getting an epilogue while being immersed in the story of new characters.
The Voyage is based on actual history and tells the story of one of the notable and founding families of the East Coast of America. The Wing Family traveled around Europe before the matriarch and her sons crossed the Atlantic to settle in Plymouth Colony and eventually Sandwich, Massachusetts.
The Voyage is based on actual events and locations, and the book includes information on locations mentioned in the book and has a timeline of the events. I wanted the political climate of England and Europe easy to understand, which was difficult based on the rule of King Henry VIII, Queen Mary, and Queen Elizabeth I.
The Voyage is easy to read and boasts several full-color illustrations made specifically for the book. The talents of the artist (not me!) show the dress and environment of the story. You have to see them!
All three books from The Fairies of Carlow, including The Gilding, The Outsider, and The Commoner, are all available now. The Voyage is newly released! The Guinness the Therapy Dog series is coming soon!
I hope you get the paperbacks or download the ebooks (all available on amazon.com) and enjoy these stories.

I’m proud to announce the release of my latest book, “The Voyage”. This illustrated book chronicles the travels of the Reverend John Wing and his family as he ministered through England, Germany, and The Netherlands. After his death, his family traveled across the Atlantic Ocean on the William and Francis.
It took them 88 days to travel from England to Boston. They settled in Plymouth Colony before resettling in Sandwich, Massachusetts as founders of that town.
This is written as an easy-to-read book and has multiple vibrant illustrations by Emma Crick. Miss Crick lives in England and was born near Sandwich, Kent–the namesake city of the settlement on Cape Cod.
