This was a fun book that kept me guessing as to the identity of the evil-doer. The characters were likeable and believeable. I learned a bit about harvesting wild blueberries as well as gleaning some idea of the Maine area, with which I am unfamiliar. Overall I would rate it quite favorably.
Although these books are targeted for young readers, I find that the series is well written and quiet good for a light, quick reading session. The stories hang together and move forward with well-tuned plots.
This was a riveting book. I liked the flashbacks to the "actual" dinosaur and its life interspersed with the main story line of the fossil. There were several threads to the story, but it was not hard to follow. Overall I would rate this book as five stars.
This is an enjoyable book and offers, in a somewhat lighthearted manner, a little insight into the wartime conditions in England. Ration books, meatless meals, blackouts and more were some of their everyday realities. The knicker twist was just added fun.
While I love older texts that have a nice story-line and the closest thing to a sex scene is a chaste kiss, I had forgotten that Hill laces her books with a lot of religeous text and messages. At least here the drive to convert someone to Christ is an integral part of the story and not just filler. Not a favorite.
This is the story of Britain's Boadicea, Queen of the Iceni, and the exploits of her Celtic army against the Romans. This is a vivid and moving romance of what was and what might have been: a story of love, hate, triumph, tragedy and the haunting aftermath.
