What did I think?
First thought was WOW! It was a great adventurous ride, like reading a PG version of Dan Brown. I was absorbed from the first chapter thinking what a great treasure to find 32-year-old letters. Then the plot flew off from there, with story going on both sides of the Atlantic. The characters were running out of time-- the intensity, the on-the-run adventure and suspense. I couldn't put the book down and I had to go to work (one of life's tragedies when there is such a book to read). There are a couple of good twists near the end, but the author has foreshadowed and it all makes sense.
I want you to know that I rarely give 5 pencils for the books I review. My daughter is more generous than I am. I'm giving this book 5 pencils and it deserves every one for thoroughly entertaining me without any unnecessary baggage. This was the most fun I've had reading for a long, long time! Read this book--you won't be sorry!

Short and Snappy:
Ann Farnsworth spent a lifetime studying ancient and modern history, and discovered a fascination with the plots used to construct a best-selling novel, a love of precise vocabulary and a true devotion to memorable characters. All of these interests came together and enabled her to write ‘The Throne of David’ when the youngest of her 10 children turned 9.
I have always been a voracious reader and sometime writer even while raising a large family of 10 children. In fact, reading allowed me to escape for a few minutes (or longer) during the day while staying connected to the needs of our family.
Our youngest is now ten and the stories that have been stewing inside my head as I washed dishes, cooked dinner and helped with homework these last 25 years are bubbling up and out of my fingertips. My favorite books to read are Da Vinci Code, Pride and Prejudice, the scriptures, any of the Harry Potter books and of course, Good Night Moon.
It is said that about 80% of us feel we have a book we’d like to write. If I can do it, anyone can. That is the truth!
