I think I may have enjoyed this book more if I had read it myself. Instead I endured a lackluster reading via librivox.org. That being said, I did enjoy the cultural information about Holland that was woven into the story. I had added interest in these details since my family originated in Holland. But, at times the insertion of the details seemed a bit abrupt. The story of the Brinker family was interesting and the plot twists were a bit surprising. I think my kids might enjoy it when they get a little older--perhaps 9-12.
