Acclaimed historian Adrian Tinniswood follows one mid-17th-century family as its members struggle with civil war and social upheaval in England and help to forge a new world across the Atlantic in New England. The Rainborowes, a family of shipmasters, soldiers, entrepreneurs and idealists, were at the centre of one of the most tumultuous periods in western history between 1630 and 1660. Through their eyes, Tinniswood paints a picture of both the brutal Civil War and the birth of the New World.

Tinniswood is a social and architectural historian. He is visiting fellow in heritage at Bath Spa University and the author of many books, including Pirates of Barbary and The Verneys, which was shortlisted for the BBC Samuel Johnson Prize for non-fiction.
