Colonist Benjamin Waite, a devoted husband, father, and skilled military
scout in King Philip’s War, reluctantly obeys orders to guide an
attack against a camp of Algonquian Natives.

After the catastrophic event, Benjamin is burdened with guilt and longs for
peace. But the Algonquians, led by the revered sachem Ashpelon, retaliate
with vengeance upon Ben’s Massachusetts town of Hatfield, capturing
over a dozen colonists, including his pregnant wife Martha and their three
young daughters.

Hatfield 1677 is a tale of three interwoven yet diverging journeys of
strength and survival: Benjamin, driven by love and remorse to rescue his
family; Martha, forced into captivity and desperately striving to protect
her children; and Ashpelon, willing to risk everything to ensure the safety
and freedom of his people.

Based on the lives of the author’s ancestors, this riveting and
unforgettable novel gives voice to three vastly different experiences in
North America during a time before the creation of the Declaration of
Independence. Then, the land was but a wilderness and a battleground;
equality was not yet perceived as self-evident; and liberty and happiness
were nothing more than dangerous pursuits.
