    What I liked most about My Father s Kingdom were its protagonists the devout, hard working and enlightened reverend Israel Brewster and the fascinating, grounded yet brilliant Linto, who do a fantastic job of tying together all the historical characters and events in the novel But I wouldn t want to take away from the supporting characters, which are equally well drawn and convincing in their roles I admit that I had no prior knowledge of King Philip s War, and only a very basic acquaintance What I liked most about My Father s Kingdom were its protagonists the devout, hard working and enlightened reverend Israel Brewster and the fascinating, grounded yet brilliant Linto, who do a fantastic job of tying together all the historical characters and events in the novel B...

    This story was a brilliantly written historical novel The story of Massachusetts Bay and the conflicts between the European immigrants and the Wampanoag people and others has always been a sad part of American history I think the author did a fantastic job bringing historical figures and fictional characters to life, interacting with each other, giving personality and humanity to what would otherwise be just a dry history lesson These we...
