Books Under the Christmas Tree part 4(young adult)

At my Eldest's urging, I am writing this post to include a set of books that she thinks any "reader" would enjoy finding under the Christmas tree~ Viking Quest Series * by Lois Walfrid Johnson has been her favorite set of books since she received the first one Christmas 2007. The rest of the set was acquired slowly, for birthdays and Christmas gifts. They are her "most lent" set of books.

The stories follow an Irish girl,  Bree,  who is captured by a young Viking Raider. Each well written, descriptive story follows her travels and travails as she deals with Mikkel, her captor,  and her maturing faith in God. The set of five books follow her life for 4 years from her capture at 13 years old till she is about 17 years old. The Viking Quest Series would make good read-along/ read-alouds for those studying the era of Leif Erikson. ;)

You can click on the book covers above* to read more about each book. Each paperback retails for $7.99 to $8.99~ They would make a marvelous gift for the history-loving young reader in your life.

*This review was at my daughter's behest, and the only compensation I *might* receive would be a few cents if you purchase any of the books through my Amazon Affiliate links above. Thank you in advance if you choose to do so. :)
