“British warships battle with American privateers in this high sea adventure. Cousins Patrick and Beth have landed on the “Royal Louis” in the middle of the Revolutionary War. Cannonballs fly and swords slash. They’re captured! Now they face even more dangers. Will their new friend James Forten be sold by the British into the West Indies slave trade? Or will they all be sentenced to the overcrowded prison ship floating near shore where scores of prisoners die from filth and disease? Patrick and Beth help plan a daring escape as they witness firsthand the deeds of brave heroes who fought to make America the land of the free.“
Great book!!! I wish I had read this series when I was younger( 10-12ish)! It’s an easy read for struggling readers and has a captivating story that will hold anyone’s attention. I love the history throughout the book as well as the prayers, faith conversations, and there are some vocabulary words that are explained as well. I requested this book with my younger siblings in mind and am almost positive that they will love it!!
I will most likely be requesting more of this series as they come out and encourage anyone with children under 13ish to purchase this book, the kids will love it!
