★★★★★ The publisher provided a copy for review.
What on earth! What an adventure! This book started with a bang and a song and never let up. With humor, rolicking storytelling, and descriptive language, Waterson brings to life the escapades and horrors of life in the late 1500s.
If you grew up reading and re-reading Robinson Crusoe, Kidnapped, Memoirs of Martinus Scriblerus and other such adventures, you'll love this tale of travel, baking, love, and exploration.
Waterson's imagination and historical research makes this a compelling and entertaining read. Not for the faint-of-stomach.
