A stimulating adventure! Sabine Muir has written a wonderful childrens story that can be read many, many times. This is a time-travel, Christian fantasy novel that reminds me a little bit of one of my favorite childhood books, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
Here, the main character, Mathew, is a young boy growing up under difficulties that are quite uncommon from his piers. Mathews father is missing, his mother has begun a new romance and bullying at school weighs heavily upon his young shoulders. Mathew thought he could escape it all during his stay at his Aunt and Uncles tranquil family farm. Unexpectedly, Mathew and his cousins are thrown into an adventure when they accidentally enter a mystery gateway into to a world of Kings, Queens, Castles and ghosts.
Sabine Muirs use of factual, historical legendary characters brought the Canmore Dynasty to life – an era that is quickly fading from all memory. The authors research and understanding of the historical era is evident in this excellent piece of work. Her fascination with this particular section in time has produced several works of fiction.
Mathew and the Highland Rescue is only the first...
