The first episode in a brand new 10-part audio drama series marking the 400 year anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower. A gripping story about one family's journey into the unknown.

What do you do when your beliefs are condemned by the rest of society? Sarah Hargreaves doesn't share her husband Matthew's desire to join the Puritan exiles, but when their son Benjamin is arrested on a trumped-up charge they have little choice but to go. Things go rapidly from bad to worse, and they decide to leave everything behind. Hoping to find peace and like minded souls in a new religious community in America, they spend everything they have left on a ticket to sail on the Mayflower.

Fleeing religious persecution, Sarah Hargreaves and her family have risked everything to escape across the ocean, but when they get to Southampton, the Mayflower has already sailed.
