“Compton does an excellent job of weaving inconspicuous hints into the story that you easily recall only after the truth has been pointed out — a writing device that I’m a big fan of . . . Great themes of turning from fear and growing close to God are embodied in this novel. It’s a nice, clean read for readers who enjoy historical fiction, a bit of mystery, and a clever ending that has somewhat of a cliffhanger.” Michaela Bush, Author and Editor

“This book was indeed perfectly and refreshingly clean. I loved the message, all about trusting God and finding joy—it’s one I relate to a lot . . . This book was very well written, especially for a historical fiction, and it is very Australian. I highly recommend it and I am so eager to get my hands on Book 2!!”
Katja L.

“Lauren paints the Australian landscape vividly, even for this American, so that you almost feel as if you were there . . .The most refreshing quality of this book, in my opinion, is that it contains NO romance. It was nice to be able to focus on the “meat” of the story and not be sidelined by “fluff”. This is a completely clean, God-honoring read that I would be be proud to hand to a girl of any age and not think twice!”
