What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“As a mom to a ten-year-old girl, I am always struggling to find wholesome and educational books for my daughter to read. Daisy’s Search for Freedom is just what I was hoping it would be. Bertha Schwartz carefully spins the tale of a slave girl who is searching for the Underground Railroad with nothing but her faith in God to lead her. The first book in The Searchers series does an excellent job of making history come alive through the eyes of someone my own child’s age. Schwartz does not shy away from uncomfortable topics but does an excellent job at depicting history in a way that is age-appropriate and faith-based. This series is a great way to ignite a love for history in our children while showing them how God has always been and will always be at work in our lives.”

Daisy's story is a middle grade historical fiction piece that is age appropriate in content. It introduces kids to the concept of the underground railroad while sparing some of the more harsh realities. Several times the characters are met with situations that more realistically would have resulted in their capture, but instead are met with people that are willing to help them. Young readers become aware of the dangers without having to witness them in the story. For me the writing style lacked some of the flow I would prefer however I would also say it's similar in content to other books for the age-range. The further you go up in reading level the more detail is added into the works and a better flow is created. It's also one that I think will interest kids when they are at the appropriate reading level, but may not hold their attention as they get older simply due to the content and attitude of the characters. When looking at other reviews for this story, others suggest the story for ages 10 and up. In my opinion I think the story would be best between ages 8 and 12. There is a level of optimism and positivity in the story that becomes unrealistic to readers after a certain age and knowledge of history. *I received a copy of this book from the author through JustRead Publicity Tours.
