Glimpse of Sunlight by Leona DeRosa Bodie and G.E. Gardiner tells the story of Dono and Kyle who are researchers and treasure hunters in search of the fabled Jonathan Dickinson’s sunken treasure. But this is no ordinary treasure hunt, and for Kyle, Dono and many more of their new friends, this is going to be a trip that they will never forget. With adventure and intrigue at every turn, there’s more to this trip than they could have ever imagined. After all, searching for the biggest treasure ever known is an adventure in and of itself, and when you add in the mystery surrounding it, you’re in for an extraordinary adventure.

Adventure saturates this book from the very first page and completely captivated me. The characters were interesting and I enjoyed watching each one as they changed and developed. I was not only entertained, but I got quite a history lesson as well. There’s a lot going on in this story which will keep you guessing until the final page. If you enjoy adventure, sunken treasure, and a little bit of history, then Glimpse of Sunlight is the right book for you.
