I could not put this book down.
Loved the style of writing and the story line.
Also read "The Kitchen House."
A very good read also.

This book was okay, however I found myself enjoying the kitchen house novel much better. It was interesting to see how Jamie's life progressed after the kitchen house but as for the other main characters from the kitchen house not much was really told of them which made me a little disappointed.

Haven't read "The Kitchen House," but now have it on hold. This does give enough backstory to make sense. Jamie grows from a terrified 13 year old to a confident adult, yet the fear of what he knows of his own background keeps him from being fully mature. This story forces him to grow up. As it comes to an end, I began to think that another in the series just has to be coming. Too many questions remain unanswered, and too many of the characters need to be filled in. That's not a criticism, but a measure of how good this book is!

This book picks up where the author's previous book The Kitchen House ended. It can easily be read on it's own but I would highly recommend both books so if you think you will like this type of story then start with The Kitchen House. They are fast, high interest reads with great characters.

An exciting and emotional story! I recommend reading The Kitchen House first as this is a sequel. Loved both books.

I loved this book as much as the first one "The Kitchen House"

Loved The Kitchen House, so was excited to see a sequel come out. Enjoyed this one as well. Didn't remember much about Jamie from the first book, but liked him in this book, flaws and all. Part of the book is Jamie's backstory, and the other part is his rescue of Pan from the slave traders. Good supporting characters, too - little Pan who is a ray of sunshine, Robert the dedicated servant and friend, teenaged Addie who is a force to be reckoned with. A good family drama type story with adventure and intrigue. Recommend.
