It is May 1634 when Jonathan and Elizabeth Pratt arrive in the Massachusetts Bay Colony from England. They are as yet unaware of the beauty and dangers that they will encounter in this wilderness as they embark on their journey of faith. As they establish a home and family in this new world, they and their companions will experience loss, tragedy, and death. They will also experience joy, love, and renewal as they serve one another in compassion, love, and charity--the pure love of Jesus Christ. They will learn that family can include much more than blood relations as they band together with others in their community of saints to face the challenges life in the wilderness. They learn that when they are in the service of their fellow man and women, they are in the service of God. They also learn that as they do their best to keep the commandments and live the Gospel, they prosper in this land that is choice above all other lands. In doing so, they plant the seeds of what will become this great country of the United States of America.
