Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Spirited Away was truly I book that I fell in love with. I think it was because for the first time I learned about Irish slavery. That's what historical fiction is supposed to do - teach with emotion. And the opening book of this series did just that. So I was truly excited when Daring Passage became published so that I could continue the fascinating story. As the first, the sequel has the same power and thrust of the first book. This time, the characters travel to the new colonies of Virginia. There, they meet danger and real life and death predicaments, especially if they are discovered to be runaway slaves. A stunning plot, memorable characters, and lovely succinct writing, make this novel truly shine. I admire Maggie Plummer's ability to weave a spellbinding tale while digging up facts and research that is new and that teaches readers. I look forward to more books in the series, along with future books and topics Maggie will one day certainly write about. Although the two books will stand alone, I recommend reading both to get the true benefits of this engrossing tale! Thank you to the author. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
