A novel by James and Marion Applegate

Listen for the Lark

Authors James and Marion Applegate collaborated again, producing another historical romance, this time set along the wild coast of New Jersey in the 1640’s. Inspired by a true story of a young immigrant rescued by the Lenni Lenape mentioned in a family letter, Listen for the Lark weaves a tale of hardship, adventure, love, and inspiration.

Penelope Van Princis, who immigrated to New Amsterdam from the Netherlands in 1643, was that woman. Listen for the Lark, published 2008, is their imaginative journey into Penelope’s body and soul as she lives through the suspenseful drama of her first nine months in the New World.
