Sinossi

Join Nat and Ruth Barton, who see everything in their life change overnight and are launched into the unknown. Little did they think that helping missionaries would turn into the adventure of a lifetime. While living aboard and sailing to tropical destinations, they encounter pirates, spies, witchdoctors, and experience things beyond their wildest imagination.
In this, the first of the Barton Family Adventures, learn how it all began. Learn how everything was turned upside down, how they came to live on board a sailboat, and how their first adventure landed them in the hands of modern day pirates and boat thieves. Their faith and trust in the Lord is put to the test as they wonder if rescue will come in time.

Book excerpt:
The darkness was barely gray, not yet really changing from black. Why was I even aware of it? It must have been early, just about daybreak when the sunlight is struggling to push out the shadows. Didn’t I just go to bed? All I wanted to do was roll over and go back to sleep. Just a little while longer and then I might get up.
Instantly I was awake as I realized we were moving!
When a boat is tied to the dock, it will rock back and forth rhythmically with the waves. The feel of a boat in motion is different.
Everything was silent. The engine wasn’t running. If dad had decided to set off early, he would have started the engines to move out of the waterway. But that didn’t make sense. He wanted us to test handling the boat as crew. He would have wanted us on deck as we cast off.
Why were we moving? Were we drifting? Had we somehow broken loose from the dock during the night?
I thought about that for a minute, but that didn’t make sense either. If we were adrift, there would be no pattern to our movements, but we were definitely moving in one direction. There was purpose in our going forward.
I don’t know what urged me to do so, but I slowly, silently eased out of bed. My bare feet hit the cool floor and I cautiously edged to the door feeling for the handle. It turned easily and I slowly cracked the door open only about an inch.
Through the skylight in the pilothouse, I could make out the mast above outlined against the gray background. There was no sail unfurled. How could we be moving ahead and in one direction with no sail and no engine running?
Something was very wrong here.
I could make out the shadowy form of a human figure behind the wheel. Who is that? I strained to make out some kind of detail. Is that dad? I didn’t think so. Dad is taller, I think.
There was movement to the right. There was the figure of someone moving from the bow past the pilothouse windows and into the cockpit. Now it looked like there were two people I didn’t know aboard.
I closed the door and sat on the edge of my bunk with my mind racing. How could the boat be moving? Who was behind the wheel? What was going on? Where was dad?
I decided to take another look out my door. They were still there in the cockpit. I had to know what was going on and where dad was.
I opened the door just enough so that I could get through and without a sound closed it behind me. I stood motionless for a few seconds to make sure that I was hidden in the darkness of the cabin and couldn’t be seen from the outside. Once I was sure, I crouched as low as I could and began to work my way forward through the salon. My eyes were adjusting to the dark and I could make out some shapes, but I didn’t make a move without first feeling my way.
I didn’t dare lift my head. I didn’t want whoever it was out there to see me. The door slowly swung open and someone came out. It was still too dark to see who it was, but I had to do something.

5.0 su 5 stelle Great Series Opener! 22 ottobre 2013
Di MrLincoln - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle|Acquisto verificato Amazon
This book is the first in what could be a long and interesting series. It follows the Barton family as their adventures on the high seas begin. It is well written and contains enough action that the read is never dull. It is also well paced so that you can read it in one sitting if you like, or you can stop after each chapter and pick right up where you left off. I would recommend it to anyone who loves a good story! It is targeted toward children/middle school age, but the bits of history and technology combined with the writing and action make it an enjoyable read for any age. I'll certainly be reading the next chapter in the Barton family adventures!

5.0 su 5 stelle A wonderful book! 19 ottobre 2013

I thoroughly enjoyed reading of the Barton Family adventures. This book is filled with great Christian values and lots of excitement. I liked how the author keeps things moving along and holds the interest of the reader. Being told from the son's point of view will make this book a favorite of, not only school age boys, but readers of all ages. I believe it is a great "read aloud" book for younger children, too. I would definitely recommend this book to all and am looking forward to reading the next one.

I purchased this book and read it all in the same evening. I personally know the Author and thought of him as I read the first 3 chapters but then got so engrossed in the story I forgot about him.
Each chapter kept me wanting to read more and I was so surprised of the ending.
Highly recommend this book for preteens, teens and adults.
Eager to get started reading the second book today.
