Plot moves quickly, has enough twists to keep you guessing, and the abridged version is smoothly edited so it flows well. We both enjoyed this book and will request more by the author.
This is a LONG book - only because it folds out to about 12 feet. One side shows the animals and scenes in daylight; the other side has the same locations at night. We had fun exploring how the scenes changed - which animals slept, whether different creatures came out in the daylight or at night, etc. One of the best moments was after I had pointed out an antelope grazing in one scene, my young granddaughter exclaimed "there are two more 'cantaloupes' on the hill!" A special book with great illustrations.
Another solid effort by Amanda Quick. Plot, plucky women, some romance - what's not to like?
Very interesting, but some of this material would be pretty intense for younger teens. It is challenging reading on a difficult topic. Definitely takes the glamour out of war...
Recommended reading - strong plot, three-dimensional characters, and plenty of twists to keep you up at night until you finish the book. Also made me wonder how much of the book's material was truly fiction and how much had a basis in reality? We immediately requested more books by the author.
