Night of the Cossack by Tom Blubaugh
I completely enjoyed this book. Nathan is a young Jewish man who is abducted and is thrust into manhood. His abductor, a Cossack, trains him to be one. While he has great hunting skills and has mixed emotions about his captor, he is glad his mother and brother are spared. He faces a lot of tough choices and has a hard road to manhood.
Nathan was a wonderful, relateable character. I enjoyed his adventure. I also loved the history mixed into the story, you learn a lot and enjoy it! Oh and the fact that it is a Christian book makes it even better. Nathan's morals were very refreshing and his love of family, just great! Vivid imagery throughout.
I rate this a 5/5. I know young adults will enjoy it but so will adults!
