The sequel to "The Mayflower Maid", set in 17th century Virginia and England. Not a bad story in theory, the couple is caught up in both the hardships of colonial life in America and the English Civil War.

However...the sheer number of typographical, grammatical, punctuation and vocabulary errors was so distracting I couldn't even begin to enjoy the book.

A sampling: Maluable, vinettes, unnavailable, accros, slight of hand, vile course manners, reaped what he had sewn, having proven his metal, under the eves of the cottage, reek havoc, set out to bate him, veracious insects, lentern lilies, ordinance instead of ordnance, descent instead of decent, bans instead of banns.

There are hundreds of missed paragraph indentations, 's for plurals, s for possessives, omitted commas, extra commas, commas instead of periods, singular subjects with plural verbs, plural subjects with singular verbs, extra words, reversed words, missing words. Really too many to even begin to list them.

I've never seen anything like it. The first book in the trilogy had a few errors. I expect that. I find a few in every book. I can only suggest an editor for the third book in the trilogy.
