In this story, Patrick and Beth set sail to the south seas where pirates, cannibals and other dangers lurk around every corner. They find themselves in 1852 off the shore of Fiji where the members of the HMS Calliope are stuck in the middle of a battle between the Christian Fijians and the non-Christian Fijians. Along with their new friend James Calvert, the missionary, they try to make peace on the island and learn important lessons living their lives as Jesus would.
Mom says: So when these books arrived at my door, both of my girls squealed with glee and took off for a cozy reading nook. That should give you some indication of the quality of these books. Every single one of them has been a joy to read, and this one was no exception. Two big thumbs up.
Annie (8 years old) says: I liked the idea of them being on a boat. I'm glad no one was eaten by a shark or thrown overboard.
Louisa (8 years old) says: I thought it was very exciting! There were some really good bad guys in this story, and some funny people too. I'm glad everyone was safe at the end of the book. I thought it was interesting that the cannibals thought the turtle shells were so valuable.
