New Worlds is a gripping story of love, loss and the human price paid for the freedoms and liberties we enjoy today. We follow the fortunes of four young people - Beth, Hope, Abe and Ned - from across both sides of the Atlantic, caught up in these turbulent times. We see them struggle as they are torn between love and ideals in the harsh reality of the changing world. In England, the restored monarchy of Charles II has betrayed its promises and reverted to tyranny. Behind the decadence of the Court, a terror machine is repressing the freedoms won for the people with so much blood during the Civil War of England when Charles I was executed. In America, the tentacles of state terror reach the English colonists of New England who are struggling to throw off the shackles of the English Crown.

Old fashioned swashbuckling
23 April 2014 | by ronaeleantrobusSee all my reviews

OK,it's not completely gripping,and some of the story lines were clipped a bit thin of time,but hey,I get sick of historical series being turned into no more than characters getting frisky,whilst this series reminded me of the good old fashioned swashbuckling series of old,whilst very aptly showing the moral dilemmas of the age,though for me Beth was a bit of an improbable character,she sort of looks on mildly whilst she's abducted,and watches someone close to her be abducted too with a look that is to say the least bovine.if you are looking for a series that gives you good old entertainment(even includes a scalping,then this is ideal).
