"Johnny looked out his bedroom window. He knew that outside were the gardens, and beyond them the stone walls that surrounded his father’s huge house, and beyond the walls, the green hills of Scotland. He smelled the clover, wet and fragrant, and the new-mown grass. Though he could see none of it through the fog, he smelled it and he felt it. He had planned this for a long, long time. For Johnny belonged to what was known as a ‘God-fearing’ family, and he was weary of the rules that went along with it..."

I got this book wanting to find a biography series for my kids. I had heard of Trail Blazers series before but this is the first in the series that I've read. I read this via my Kindle App in a short amount of time. I'll be recommending this series to my kids along with picking up some more for myself. Great way to learn of those who have made an impact for Christ.
