Book Review: Giants in the Land

About the Book:

There are giants in the land.

And it has always been so as far as anyone can remember. They work side-by-side with the people, and whenever there is a job too difficult or a threat too great they are there to step in. The giants’ presence gives the townspeople a special confidence about life. But they have become much more dependent on the giants than they realize. One morning the people discover the giants have mysteriously disappeared. Fear and panic grip the town. Someone must find them and bring them back!

Thomas, a young farmer, volunteers and sets out alone on a great journey of danger and discovery. Thomas learns the true nature of giants and what it means for him and his people. Join Thomas in his timeless rite of passage and learn what it means to become something more than you have been, why it is necessary in life, and how to do it. Learn more about Giants in the Land:

My Review of the Book:

Giants in the Land was a great book!   It is a quick and easy read and enjoyable to a great age range!  I adored Thomas and the journey that he went on and found some life lessons that make this book one that will stand the test of time! I really did not have a hard time getting into it and found it was also a great book to read when busy with the kids and needed some well deserved me time.  Which honestly with us halfway into the summer holidays is often. :-)  If your looking for a book to read this summer I really do recommend it!  We are never to old to learn life lessons and Thomas teaches us a very important one!

Head on over here to buy your own copy and one for a friend.   This is definitely a book you will want to share!

Happy Reading!
