Pros: What an exciting and faith building book. We read this book together as a family and couldn’t put it down. Needless to say, we have already ordered the rest of the series. We are looking forward to following the McWaid family on more adventures. This adventure started in Ireland. Mr. McWaid was falsely accused and punished for a crime he did not commit. His sentence included sending him to the penal colony in Australia. This book introduces the reader to the McWaid family and their travels to and around a bit of Australia. It also shows how strong faith can help carry a family during difficult trials. Definitely good reading for young men and women of God.
