I had bought the third book in this series when I was in Ireland not realizing it was the third in a series of three. So later when I started to read that one, I wanted to read the first two first. Even though they are meant for children, I enjoyed them very much. They are great historical fiction After I finished reading them, I loaned them to a friend and she enjoyed them very much, also, and wish we could read more by this author.

As mentioned in my previous review this series is great for young and older readers alike.
I am reading it with my 8 year old and secretly staying 2 chapters ahead to make sure it was
appropriate for her. I am glad I did because of the deaths on the ship which although we know
happened I am glad I skipped over that section as to not put such a heartbreaking image in her head.
We are half way through but I have already finished as I couldn't stop after she fell asleep. I am
glad it once again ended on a happy note and look forward to the third book....once she catches up to me.
