    I didn't enjoy Days of Terror as much as I liked Smucker's first novel, Underground to Canada, but this one is still a great story, filled with early 1900's history and interesting characters, it's definitely a book worth reading.

    I loved it. I didn't want to put it down even after I was done reading it. :)

    This book is a well-written and factual re-telling of the Russian Revolution and its effects on the Mennonite communities. At times the story read like a history textbook, and it was difficult to connect with the characters. However, it is full of important information about the Mennonite hardships and the emigration to Canada, and would be useful as part of a historical fiction unit in an intermediate classroom.

    This is a great read for a class novel study. It was especially relevant with the demographics of my class this year. The kids really enjoyed the historical aspect of the book, as well as the generally fast-paced approach of the story. This is a novel to keep on the list!

    Great story brings to life the plight of Mennonites in Russia during early 1900's and their subsequent immigration to Canada and US.

    This is an extremely important book, especially for our kids to read. We are in such great danger of having history repeat itself.

    A children's book and with some rough patches in the writing, but overall good and compelling. I was constantly struck by the number of family and personal names familiar to me from family genealogy.

    This is a very interesting book and I couldn't put it down when I could read it. I hope that lots of others read the book too.
