Hush Donna Jo Napoli Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
Melkorka is a princess, the first daughter of a magnificent kingdom in mediæval Ireland -- but all of this is lost the day she is kidnapped and taken aboard a marauding slave ship. Thrown into a world that she has never known, alongside people that her former country's laws regarded as less than human, Melkorka is forced to learn quickly how to survive. Taking a vow of silence, however, she finds herself an object of fascination to her captors and masters, and soon realizes that any power, no matter how little, can make a difference.
Based on an ancient Icelandic saga, award-winning author Donna Jo Napoli has crafted a heartbreaking story of a young girl who must learn to forget all that she knows and carve out a place for herself in a new world -- all without speaking a word.

User reviews about this book
Some flaws for historical fiction...
For example, Melkorka speaks of seeing corn in Ireland more than 400 years before it was imported from the Americas.
The book was decent. The beginning sucked but it got better towards the end. I could live without reading this book. The plot was very short and stretched out over 992 i-book pages so it was kind of boring.
such a great read!!
