Fair Wind to Virginia

By Cornelia Meigs
Level 8

This book features challenging, complex writing, but it is well worth the effort. The descriptions in the book are beautiful. The book really makes the time period (just before the Revolutionary War) and real historical figures come alive, and it’s packed with wonderful educational knowledge and insight as well as moral value. This is not a book for reluctant readers, but serious readers will appreciate its high value and enjoy its elements of mystery and the engaging characters.
