Overview

Escape By Sea by L.S. Lawrence

Fascinating details about ancient life on the Mediterranean Sea, dispersed with provoking questions about tolerance, morality, and diversity, make this coming-of-age adventure a gripping choice for middle-grade readers.

Although Sara has lived a privileged life as the daughter of a merchant and senator in ancient Carthage, everything changes when the Romans attack her city. Her only brother is killed, and she and her father are forced to flee for their lives. They hastily gather a cargo to trade across the sea, but soon face the Roman navy, pirates, a tempest, and jilted merchants bent on revenge. Then, just as Sara is settling into life aboard the ship, her father dies. With danger constantly at her back and no destination in sight, Sara must rely on her own wit to learn to trade and lead her ship to freedom.
