”Immersive, like the best of historical fiction. …This riveting portrayal of early Colonial New England shines a speculative but compelling light on the time and place.”—Kirkus Reviews
”It’s been so long since I felt like a little girl in love with books again. Treasure Island, Island of the Blue Dolphins, The Yearling, lazing around on a spot of sunshine totally engrossed in this other, historical world, that’s how I feel about Will Poole’s Island.” – Suzanne Kingsbury, author of The Summer Fletcher Greel Loved Me
”Will Poole’s Island is a classic tale, transporting and evocative. You’ll find yourself caught up in the action of this timeless adventure”—K.L. Going, author of Fat Kid Rules the World
”Tim Weed’s Will Poole’s Island is a doorway to an earlier world when the United States existed as a borderless tract of land whose dimensions could hardly be imagined. It is the best kind of historical fiction, the kind that brings that earlier world forward for our understanding. This is a superb novel, written with truth and daring at its core.”—Joseph Monninger, award-winning author of Baby and Crash
7 Part biography, part history, part exploration of Spinoza’s philosophy: wholly engaging. . . . Throughout this ambitious and thorough narrative, Lehmann does an outstanding job of illuminating Spinoza’s concepts in a clear, concise and logical manner and gives them contextual relevance by illuminating the pertinent political and social upheavals of the time. . . . Clarity, accessibility and spot-on relevance to issues facing modern society make this a must-read.
