Title: The Everlasting
Author: Angie Frazier
Ages: 13+
Rating: 4


Sailing with her father is all Camille Rowen has ever known. But being 17 years old in 1855 means it’s time for Camille to become a lady. No more taking to the high seas. No more adventure. It’s time for her to settle down with a respectable and wealthy man. Lucky for her, one of the most desirable men around has chosen her to be his wife. There’s only one problem: Camille has no feelings for him.


The Final Voyage

Before the wedding, Camille goes with her father and his crew on her final voyage. That’s when Camille discovers the truth that her father has kept from her for so many years: her mother is alive! And she sent a letter asking her father to bring Camille to her home in Port Adelaide, Australia before she dies.


The Shipwreck

Then disaster strikes. A powerful storm smashes their ship to pieces. The only people to survive are Camille, an unlikeable character named Lucius, and a 19 year old crewman names Oscar. Camille is distraught. Her beloved father is gone! At least she has Oscar, the man she secretly has feelings for.


The Resurrection Stone

In the letter, Camille’s mother mentions a map. But it’s no ordinary treasure map. It’s believed to lead to an ancient stone that has the power to bring someone back from the dead. If Camille found it, she could resurrect her father! But there’s a problem: her father’s archenemy knows about the map. And he’s after the stone too.


The Bottom Line

A pinch of romance, a dash of adventure, and handful of determination. Everlasting is a great book for teens, particularly those who enjoy historical fiction. Tell us what you think of Everlasting in our comments section below!

  • Yeah, I love 'em! It's all I ever read.

  • I'll read them every once and a while.
  • No way. I'm more of a Harry Potter fan.
