I had read several of the other American Portrait series prior to reading 'The Puritans'. Although each book is a great read in its own right, ‘The Puritans’ has provided all the background to the Morgan family’s history, which has been alluded to in all other volumes. The historical characters included in each book and the manner in which fact and fiction are woven together makes this series a ‘must read’. ( )

Drew Morgan, a young Englishman, is told to infiltrate the Puritan villages and report back to Bishop Laud, but his heart changes as he meets these people and falls in love with one of them. He goes to the colonies to avoid further confrontation with the bishop, but the trouble soon follows him.
