The Hungry Year, a Silver Birch Fiction Regional Winner in 2002, told the story of Kate and her small twin brothers, Ryan and Alex, and their struggle to stay alive in the backwoods of Ontario during the infamous winter of 1787-88. Enthusiastic readers begged for another story, this time about the twins, and Connie Crook follows through splendidly in The Perilous Year.

The twins are twelve years old now, and long for something more exciting than the dull life and the backbreaking labour of the settle farmer. Alex especially dreams about those pirates they've heard stories about, roaming Lake Ontario and helping themselves to what they need from whoever has it. That's the life for him!

Things get shaken up a bit when father brings something unexpected home from King's Town -- a wife! In short order Kate is married and away in a home of her own, and the boys are stuck with a new stepmother, who's a fine lady to boot. She refuses to leave, no matter what the boys do, and earns the boys grudging respect, especially Rayn's.

In one way or another, the twins' new stepmother brings them more adventures than they ever dreamed possible. Soon they are putting their lives on the line for her, for each other, and for their family's honour!

About the Author:

Connie Brummel Crook is a Fitzhenry and Whiteside author.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-7--Alex and Ryan, 11, survived The Hungry Year (Stoddart, 2001) and now they are thriving and looking for adventure. Life in late-18th-century Upper Canada is not easy for the twins--their father has brought home a new, young wife; their beloved sister, Kate, has married and moved away; and there is always too much work to do. The boys yearn for excitement, and they get more than they could have imagined. Between Alex's unexpected trip with pirates on Lake Ontario and arrival home in the middle of his own funeral, Ryan's plunge into icy waters, and their pregnant stepmother's early delivery during a blizzard, the boys move from one exciting calamity to the next. However, nothing prepares them for what happens when the pirates return and want the brothers to help them recover their hidden gold. This is a fast-paced, entertaining approach to historical fiction. Crook keeps the story moving without making it too unbelievable, and the twins' dreams and worries ring true.--Laura Reed, Kitchener Public Library, Ontario, Canada
