Faythe of North Hinkapee by James T. Hogg

Book Review - 

Faythe of North Hinkapee: The Saga of a Young Woman's Quest for Justice and Love in Colonial America is a part of a book series. This particular edition is a compilation of the five books, and I will be reviewing the first part only, known as Assault written by James T. Hogg (penname).

Set against the backdrop of 16th-century colonial New England, the narrative unfolds amidst the volatile conflict between Sagawanee Indians and White settlers, a turbulent era fraught with tension and bloodshed. Central to the tale is the establishment of North Hinkapee, a township founded by Thompson Downing in 1670, which brokered a fragile truce with the Indians. 

Within the conflicts of North Hinkapee, the formidable Downing family wields unassailable authority, reigning with unquestioned dominion over the populace. Amidst this backdrop of entrenched power dynamics, the narrative pivots to the plight of the Wentworth family ensnared in the machinations of the Downings. 

Faythe, eldest daughter of Robert and Lucy Wentworth, whose unwavering resolve and martial prowess become manifest in her steadfast defense of her kin, particularly her vulnerable younger sister, Chloe. 

Tragically, Chloe falls victim to a heinous assault, igniting a blazing inferno of vengeance within Faythe's heart. Fuelled by a burning obsession to avenge her sister's suffering, Faythe embarks on a harrowing journey fraught with peril and moral ambiguity. She grapples not only with external adversaries but also with the superstitions and injustices that threaten to unravel the fabric of her family's existence.

Moreover, interwoven amidst the saga of the Wentworths and Downings are the poignant narratives of Katakuk and Nununyi, Sagawanee Indians, whose own trials of love and loss resonate deeply with the overarching themes of the narrative. 

I would love to read further installments to see how their path intertwines with Faythe's quest for retribution, lending a multi-dimensional depth to the overarching storyline. 

Highlighted by a compelling ensemble cast, imbued with strong female protagonists, and a labyrinthine plot rife with unforeseeable twists, this book captivates readers from start to end. 

If you seek a riveting narrative teeming with dynamic characters, moral quandaries, and a rich historical backdrop embellished with themes of avarice and romance, look no further than this compelling tome.
