About The Indenture of Ivy O’Neill:
Not every immigrant sailed willingly to America. Ivy O’Neill’s idyllic childhood ends in disaster in 1690 when red-coated soldiers cross the Celtic Sea to invade Ireland. While the O’Neill family struggles to survive on the Irish coast, George Stokely is building a life in the British Colony of Maryland. All he needs to make his Chesapeake tobacco farm thrive is more help. The Indenture of Ivy O’Neill is an immersive story of courage, the meaning of family, and the transformative power of immigration.
