I like historical fiction and this is a good example. It was fun to hear about the adventure from the point of view of the stowaway on the ship. Boy this they endure a lot! You must read this book.

I’m not big on historical fiction, but I didn’t realize that that was what this was until I read the Epilouge. This story is an amazing book, made even better when you find yourself in an intense section of the story, only to take a break, get up, look outside and relax and remember it is just a book. Still it is hard to imagine someone going through the tradegies that our stowaway faced. This is a great read for a day when you’re sick but can’t sleep.
