This book is the second in a series of seven that are planned for future publication.

It is good, easy reading for young people (9yrs–13yrs) with short chapters and a wide vocabulary. The setting will be familiar and the attitudes of the adults are full of common sense!

Power of prayer

Mary Weeks Millard has been gifted to write good children’s books that are both exciting and full of gospel truth. The blurb says that she enjoys writing books to encourage young people to grow in the Christian faith and she achieves that in a way that cannot fail to impress her readers. Pirates and Prisoners focuses on the power of prayer.

This book will make an acceptable Sunday school prize or a good stocking filler at Christmas. We look forward to the rest of the series being published and also reading the author’s other books.
