Growing up in the 1700’s was a precarious time, where you could easily be ruined by a stroke of bad luck. Gabriel Da Silva tried his best to prepare his children for taking over his business or even building their own businesses. Who would think you need to prepare your child to be kidnapped? I mean seriously most people do not have the particular type of skills to know what to do. The characters are authentic for the time period as well as credible. Sarah will steal your heart with her intelligence, compassion and determination. Jacob is intelligent, funny and extremely skilled. Noah is smart, loyal and strong. Michel is smart, ambitious and a great leader. Sarah’s compassionate heart brings them all together as family.
The author’s writing style and pace is good and keeps the reader captivated. It was a little slow starting out but quickly picks up after first few chapters. Sarah and Jacob were taken to a new country far from their home and had to rebuild their lives. Despite the fat man’s several attempts to harm Sarah, in the end she becomes extremely successful. I couldn’t imagine how hard it must be to try to survive after what she had went through. It is an amazing tale of survival, revenge and love mixed with action adventure.
