She didn’t know about those boys, Gram thought, watching them through the kitchen window. She’d sent them down to bail the boat, which Sammy didn’t mind-but James was dawdling on behind his brother. It had rained all the previous night-a cold slanting March rain-and most of the morning, too. Then, Marchlike, the wind had shifted in the afternoon to the southwest, blowing the heavy clouds away, blowing warm.

Sons from Afar - Cynthia Voigt. ask. CHAPTER 1. James never could tell a story the way it should be told; when he told it, he could hear it sound like a series of facts, like a history book, not like a story. I can see why he did that, Sammy said.

The sixth book in Cynthia Voigt's acclaimed Tillerman Series, about Dicey Tillerman and her family, where Dicey's brothers Sam and James hunt for their father. Six years have passed since James and Sammy Tillerman came with their sisters Dicey and Maybeth to live with their grandmother. They have grown up as very different individuals -- James, the shy intellectual dreamer at 15, and Sammy, 12, the handsome, boisterous doer of the family. James begins to ask questions about their father. Who was he? Why did he leave? He and Sammy begin a quest to track their father down, through the streets of Annapolis and among the seedy dockside bars of Baltimore, and learn more about themselves in consequence. A strong, emotional story about young adults discovering who they are and what they are capable of. It builds on characters already loved and admired from the first book in the Tillerman series, Homecoming.

In this book, Cynthia delves into the character of the boys.She weaves a picture of their struggles and conflict of growing up without a father. The development of the characters is one of the many good things about this book, however not quite as exciting as the others. If this had been one at the beginning is the series, I'm not quite sure I would have read any more. The book is enjoyable but just an average read.

"Sons from Afar", book 6 of 7 about the indomitable Tillerman family focuses on two brothers searching for their father. It keeps us jumping from page to page and we hold our breath through all of their adventures. Read by itself it is exciting to the very end. Read as part of the Tillerman series it fleshes out the family and adds dimension to all of them who we have grown to love. I only wish Cynthia Voight has written 15 books about the Tillermans. They are real to me, and
with every book, I want to read more! By the way, these books are for everyone! I am 67 years old and while children may love these books, I think grown adults will love them even more!

Cynthia Voigt is a talented writer and I've enjoyed all the books she has written about the Tillerman Family. I especially enjoyed The Home Coming and Diecey's Song. The Sons From Afar is another good book written by Ms. Voigt. Sons From Afar takes us on a journey with James and Sammy as they search for their father. Along the way the two brother's learn about themselves and their long lost father who they never find. It's a good read. I would recommend this book to everyone.

I liked Sons from Afar, however I prefer the Tillerman Cycle books where Dicey is the protagonist. Anyway, I thought this was a good book. I liked how the two characters, James and Sammy, are so different, but when they work together for a cause that they both believe in their temperaments come together to form one force.
I haven't come across one of her books yet that I didn't enjoy. Dicey's song and Homecoming are the best in the series, though.
