.A wonderful piece of work. Thank you Bev for sharing this intriguing seafaring story with a vivid portrait of a girl's life on land and sea.
Bev Stout’s “Secrets of the Realm” is one such book. With an 18th century canvas, this period piece has all the elements that make for a captivating adventure. Stout’s alluring cover, intriguing title, and beautifully crafted storytelling all conspire to draw the reader into the world of fifteen-year-old Annie Moore.
The author paints her memorable characters, their dire circumstances and settings with equal precision. Meticulous attention to detail is evident from her deft employment of nautical terms to her use of distinctive and identifiable dialogue, each uniquely suited to the individual character.
From the outset, the confluence of these critical components were destined to hold its reader captive. Stout infused her words with a color palette that popped into vivid reality. Annie, Hawke, Doc, and Symington were not simply names on a page, but living breathing entities whose presence materialized in front the reader.
No riptide could steer you from the perfect course Stout charted in this swashbuckling adventure.
The book is well-written, the pacing great and the characters well-developed. I got to know each one through the author’s writing. I have no idea what’s in store for Annie and Captain Hawke, I’m leaving this in the capable hands of the author. Great read!
I had purchased the WhisperSync accompanying audio for the book and ended up listening to about half of the novel The narrator did an outstanding job - so much so that I am tempted to go back and listen to the whole story again. I would highly recommend this book for both older children and adults - it was a very satisfying read.
This was a sort of "coming of age" with much adventure, imagination and humor. I Learned much about ships and sea life in a very interesting story format.
I can see an "Annie" sequel in the future.
Thank you Bev Stout for providing such clean, fun reading. I look forward to more books from you.
