The Crown and Covenant series is set in Scotland and follows a family of covenanters as they fight for religious freedom. Click the picture for more information about the book.
I read the first book aloud. I thought he'd immediately start to read the next book, but he didn't. I wondered if he didn't like it. Then one day he picked up the first one, reread it, and quickly devoured the rest.
We tried to get my daughter interested but there weren't enough girls with major roles to interest her.
I have to admit I do like being able to hand a book over and not worry that my child will encounter something I'd rather he didn't. It is hard to find books like that as kids get older.
The Faith and Freedom trilogy follows the same family, now in pre-Revolution America as well as Scotland.
He read these very quickly. He always has loved a good story!
He liked this series slightly better than the first one, but could not tell me why. It doesn't really matter!
This is the third book in the trilogy; we don't have it yet but will get it for him soon.
Have you found good historical fiction (Christian or not) for your pre-teen or teen boys? I'd love to hear about it. What adult books have you found to be appropriate for your young men?
