Out oars and reef sails with Bree--you'll learn a lot on this Viking ship!
PlotWhen Briana O'Toole is captured by a young Viking chieftain, she has to reevaluate her faith and learn to trust God during circumstances she'd never dreamed of.
MoralityThere's no blurring of ethical lines here. The "enemy" are either sinful, confused, or ignorant of God's truth.
Spiritual ContentSpiritual principles are very much in evidence. Bree's parents are excellent role models, and the choices Bree has to make are based on Scriptural ideals of right and wrong.
ViolenceThere is some violence when the Irish captives are taken, but it's not graphic.
Drug and Alcohol ContentNone.
Crude or Profane Language or ContentNone.
ConclusionI would feel cheated if I was a preteen and never got a chance to read this book. It and its sequels are adventurous and compelling--and rich in spiritual truth.
