Rated 1 out of 5 by from Badly written This novel was written very badly that I felt that it should have been for a grade four's reading level. It also dragged on and on about Angeline's days, which were all very similar. It was somewhat educational, since the protagonist, Angeline, was a part of the Children's Crusade of 1212 A.D. The crusade was unsuccessful, and Angeline was sold as a slave in Egypt, and that is where the novel began. Only read Angeline if you are interested in how a slave is treated, otherwise don't waste your time: there are many more great novels out there.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from WOW! This is a heart warming tale that is an easy read and does not drag on. It is a very good story. I am glad i got my copy. I love how it takes place so far back in time and how the main characters heal from their pasts with time. this book is definately worth reading. I loved this book, but enjoy books that are a little more advanced than this one.
