      In a Sentence Cate of the Lost Colony is a masterful coming of age tale that takes place in a vivid historical setting My ThoughtsWhen I was in high school, I picked up Lisa Klein s first novel, Ophelia, and absolutely loved it As such, I was really excited to read Cate of the Lost Colony Klein has written a few books between Ophelia and Cate, but this is only the second one that I ve read Cate of the Lost Colony definitely lived up to the high standard set by Ophelia The characters were just as [...]

      I enjoyed Lady Macbeth s Daughter by Klein and I wondered how she would craft Cate of the Lost Colony into a fictional work of art Well, I didn t have to worry because Klein pulled me into another beautifully written work of historical fiction built around events of the Lost Colony of Roanoke It s astounding to read about some of these historical figures and the mysteries surrounding what actually happened to the Colony The detail that was put into creating the characters piqued my interest even [...]

      I m stunned This was ABSOLUTELY SPLENDID I normally quite enjoy Historical Fiction but this time I mean, come on This is probably the single one thing in history that I would die to read about, and Lisa Klein does a marvelous job with it It will always be one of the greatest historical mystery, but now I have an alternate ending that completely satisfied me I was truly amazed by the way the story flows naturally and provides the reader such vivid insight with the several POVs and letter format P [...]

      Are you, like me, so incredibly fascinated by the Roanoke colony I remember reading about it in fifth grade Mind Blown They just don t know where over a hundred people went And they left a word carved into a log Beyond bizarre And awesome Lisa Klein who in her book OPHELIA, made me actually really like Ophelia , delves into the mystery of the Roanoke colony with gusto She also paints an amazing picture of life at Elizabeth I s court, and life in an Algonquin village of that same time period Thi [...]

      I had high hopes for this book A pretty cover, Elizabethan England, the lost colony of Roanoke, romance, and danger makes for a pretty fantastic build up I was not disappointed It s a little slow to start, and one charcter annoyed me, but overall I truly loved this book The setting was marvelous I tend to love anything set during Tudor England particularly King Henry VIII or Elizabeth I I think the author did a fantastic job with the royal setting and what it might have been like to serve Queen [...]

      The lost colony of Roanoke was something that I always found quite interesting when studying history What happened to those people Where did they go Cate of the Lost Colony provides an intriguing and quite plausible explanation The people were absorbed into the Native American tribes nearby I know that s not something that ever would have crossed my mind before reading this book, but I m sure historians and or scholars have considered this possible outcome I loved that this story presented this [...]

      This book was absolutely wonderful and one of the best I ve read so far this year Cate is such a wonderfully relatable and fiercely abiding heroine that no matter what she did, I loved her always I loved the romance, adventure, mystery and history attached to this book It was very well written and Lisa Klein s explanation for what happened to the lost colony of Roanoke is very plausible and interesting I especially enjoyed Cate s acceptance of Manteo before she had even met him To her he was jus [...]

      Fictional account of what may have become of the Lost Colony of Roanoke Slow in places, and I felt the author spent too much time on inner reflection with the main characters 3 stars

      Its not often I will read a non romance, historical fiction novel Even less likely if its young adult However something about Cate of the Lost Colony made me want to read it Badly Told in three parts, we watch Cate go from an anxious lady in waiting to Queen Elizabeth, to a young settler desperately trying to hold onto hope and ultimately a young woman who has found a place for herself.The novel is told from her first person POV, Manteo s first person POV and through letters, poems and memos of [...]

      How have I not read anything by the amazingness that is Lisa Klein before Cate of the Lost Colony was an engaging, original, and very well written novel that had me reading late into the night Historical fiction has always been one of my favorite genres and I ve read about a variety of time periods The lost colony of Roanoke is something that interests me very much, but it s also one of the only parts of American history I haven t read much about The main character, Cate Archer, is such a fantas [...]

    19. Megan (the on said:

      Cate of the Lost Colony is a rare jewel in the historical fiction world With fresh prose, an intriguing historical mystery and a sprinkle of romance, this novel can do no wrong The story takes off at a clip from the very first page, and the pace only increases as Cate navigates her way through the stormy waters of Queen Elizabeth s court Never fear, before all the noble s mind games become too tiresome, Cate sets sail for Virginia with a heart full of courage and hope Catherine Archer is one of [...]

      I have been fascinated by the story of the lost colony of Roanoke since I was a teen so I was excited when I heard about this novel The story starts out at the court of Queen Elizabeth but I felt that this part of the story moved much slowly than the part that takes place in Roanoke Once Cate is banished, the story became interesting to me even though I enjoy Tudor history Cate s life in Roanoke is vastly different from the life she enjoyed as a courtier even with all the gossip and backstabbi [...]

      There have been quite a few books about the Tudors over the last few years, and they ve all told similar stories Klein s book takes place during Elizabeth I s reign, but the story focuses on Cate, a lady in waiting who falls out of favor She s sent to the new world, and struggles to survive.I ve definitely expressed my love for intelligent, strong female characters in YA fiction By the end of the book, Cate won me over She s faces her problems head on, and shows better leadership abilities than [...]

      Definitely one of my FAVORITES As expected of Lisa Klein Amazing historical fiction I ve always liked these books, which talk about English settlers finding the good side of the Native Americans, and how they used to live Sort of like Witch Child and Sorceress I totally recommend Sorceress because it s really similar, but I can t recommend Witch Child YET, because I have YET to read it.Also, the parts about Queen ElizabethI guess I m still being influenced by The Other Boleyn Girl, because that [...]

    28. Alise(Readers in Wonderland) on said:

      I loved how this book started out, mainly because I love historical fiction, and then the story took a 180 degree turn What might have been a romance turned into almost a history lesson Although well written, I found the history portions to be tedious and that was most likely why I did not enjoy the second half of the book Even though I love novels set in this period, this one regrettably just did not do it for me.

      It was amazing We have long speculated about the fates of the Roanoke colonists This book offers a pleasing and probable explanation I loved the characters they popped off the page

    30. Nikolae Keaveney on said:

      I didn t like this book too much until the last 1 3 of the book Then, it truly transformed and captured my heart I can say with conviction that I thoroughly enjoyed it, the storyline, and the characters.What I would say that this book is very short, only 300 pages, but a lot happen during one page It is very dense, and sometimes it can make you very sleepy, despite the constant events happening.I never liked Ralegh, I thought that he was a dickhead since the beginning, obsessed with his own vani [...]
