Mary of the Mayflower
While this story about Mary Chilton, the first woman to set foot on Plymouth Rock, is a very worthy read, the writing style is not my favorite. The story is slow-moving with a very simple plot, and some of the language, which tries to be true to the time period, is hard to get through. However, the story is wholesome and has wonderful educational value. Serious readers who like historical details may enjoy the book, but there are many I would recommend before this one.
