I am homeschooled in 7th grade. I first read this book as a homework assignment in my reading book, but it doesn't seem like any homework to me. It's great! I love how the author illustrates the passion as well as the sorrow of the story. The hero of the book is Jacques Chenier, a fourteen-year-old whose father is killed by a nobleman. Donnalynn Hess dramatically unfolds the story as Jacques is imprisoned in the Bastille and escapes, gets swept into the French Revolution, and finally finds true honor through Christ. I was spellbound as I read the story, and I will definitely recommend this book to anyone.
