My Review : Ok, so most people know, or have some inkling that I am a huge Gilbert Morris fan. Which I totally am! I was so excited to dig into another of his historical adventures, again and I wasn't disappointed.
In my experience with Gilbert Morris books I always find myself coming away with some new tidbit of historical knowledge and a feel for what that time must have felt like.
I will admit that it was a bit of a slow start, compared to what I'm used to from Mr. Morris. But I knew I'd be hooked pretty soon, and I was :) I guess this book was a bit predictable for me, but that might be because I've read about 59 of his books! But I think I was able to figure things out only because I've read so many of Mr. Morris's books :)
Mr. Morris has created some memorable characters in this book, the most memorable I think would be Jacob Steiner, a born-again Jew. Jacob was a very wise man, and very endearing. And to me he stood out.
Overall, another wonderful book from Mr. Gilbert Morris, one that I would recommend to his fans, though I don't think that it was his best. I would also recommend it to people who want to learn more history, yet have fun at the same time.
Final Rating: 4.25 out of 5
