Saved at Sea

Mrs. O. F. Walton

Book Overview: 

Alick was born in a lighthouse during a storm, and raised in the same lighthouse. He used to wish something would change, and one day something did. In an attempt to rescue a ship in distress, Alick and his grandfather end up with a baby girl. Who are her parents? Did they perish on that stormy night? As the lighthouse people try to find the answers to these questions, little "Timpey" begins to work her way into their hearts. And while the lighthouse stands firmly on the rock, are Alick and his grandfather truly anchored on the Rock?

I shall never forget that sight to my dying day! My grandfather and Jem Millar saw it, and they pulled on desperately.

And now we were so near to the vessel that had it not been for the storm which was raging, we could have spoken to those on board. Again and again we tried to come alongside the shattered ship, but were swept away by the rush of the strong, resistless waves.

Several of the sailors came to the side of the ship, and threw out a rope to us. It was long before we could catch it, but at last, as we were being carried past it, I clutched it, and my grandfather immediately made it secure.

'Now!' he cried. 'Steady, Jem! we shall save some of them yet!' and he pulled the boat as near as possible to the ship.

Oh! how my heart beat that moment, as I looked at the men and women all crowding towards the place where the rope was fastened.

On going into this book, I wasn’t sure at all of what to expect. I haven’t read much by Mr. O. F. Walton, and I *thought* this was going to be a book for younger. I was trying t oblige my younger siblings by reading this one that they had been recommending and pestering me to read.

"On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand."

Very good book, but I don't like how they killed of the one character just to make a point and I don't like how he just found his father and then immediately moved away. I liked the characters though so this is one of my top books this year.

Character building book for young and old alike

Very well written. The characters were very well described. The story will have an impact on anyone's life. I am glad the book was required reading for my son, excellent reading for a child - which I ended up enjoying as much.

I read this to my boys at bed time. It is meant as a children’s book but at 8 they weren’t quite ready to read it themselves. They needed a bit explained to them to help them follow and the Old English confused them a bit.
I love that it expanded their vocabulary and ear for literature. The story it

3.5 stars (liked it)

A simply written and heartwarming 1887 Christian short story about a grandfather and young grandson who rescue a girl from the sea which has a lasting impact on their life. A book that can be enjoyed by adults and young people alike.

This is a cute story with lots of emotion! Simply written, which would make it good for younger readers. Explains simply what it means to build our lives on the Rock, Jesus Christ, while telling a story that will captivate interest.

The plot is interesting, but only mentions a few major events, whic
