Angela Keocharoen

Synopsis

When supplies became paltry, John White, as governor of the Colony at Roanoke, was elected to return to England. In doing so he left his pregnant daughter, Eleanor, behind to govern the colony. Upon his homecoming, White found the return to Roanoke to be delayed by war.

Desperate and with few options he turns to an enemy, Simon Fernandez, for help. After a time of preparation and the turmoil, the unauthorised expedition left for the colony. As her father struggles to return, Eleanor struggles to keep the fledgling colony afloat. With food and supplies depleted, dissent begins to grow. Each day brings a longing for White's return and fears of the consequences should he fail. With the struggles of the journey behind them, White and Fernandez arrive at Roanoke only to receive a shock. Every single inhabitant of the island has mysteriously vanished, never to be heard from again.
