I was lucky enough to win this book in the Goodreads giveawayFascinating book about a fascinating family that was involved in both the settling of the US and major event in England and the United Kingdom They held major political and military roles and then just disappear from historyI never heard of the Rainborrowes though I had heard of Gov Winthrop of MA and many of the other names mentioned in the colonies The writing became a bit dry and a little confusing at times because of the complex familial connections but the overall story kept my interest I learned many things about the colonies and English history I never knew
