A Slave Set Free opens a little awkwardly in the present day. In the first chapter, two boys named Chris and James end up doing some exploration on their computer about the history of slavery. In the second chapter John Newton's story begins. Though we haven't finished the entire book, it doesn't appear that the author returns to the modern-day Chris and James computer scene.
Anyhow, my boys are all enjoying it. The author does a good job depicting slave conditions on the ships. My nine year old was moved to tears listening to one of the passages.
Overall, a good book. I've always been happy with Christian Focus Publications. Author Irene Howat also wrote the "Ten Boys/Girls Who..." series, which my kids have really enjoyed.
