This book tells the story of two young Irish children during the time of the Viking raids on Ireland. The book describes the preparations Irish families made for Viking raids and what happened when the Vikings came.
Bree, and her brother Devin, are the heroes of the story. Both are captured by the Vikings and taken on board the Viking ship, which is headed back to Norway. Can they escape and get back to their family, or will they end up in Norway?
The book has a strong Christian message. From a historical perspective, I feel as though the application of Christianity is a bit modern (not in keeping with the Christianity of the Viking era). However, this is just something I, as an adult history-lover/theology-lover notice.
The next book is on order at the library -- the kids can't wait!
