A truly enjoyable book about a young boy who must find his own way in the world of the Roman Empire. Orphaned at a young age and abandoned by his Aunt and Uncle, Guiamo finds a group of fishermen that help him change his stars. I love how the book intertwines historical facts and figures with fiction. Guiamo is an interesting character and I can't wait to read more about him in the other books in the series!
What an enjoyable book! I couldn't put it down. The stories of Barbara's dogs leaped from the pages and had me laughing and crying. Even though Barbara had some difficulties with her dogs, she did not give up on them, but she also knew that dogs require proper training too! I highly recommend this book to anyone, not just dog lovers!
