Jamie and Bella's seaside vacation takes an unexpected turn when they cross paths again with Popov, the orphan Jamie met in the first book in this series, An Extraordinary Friend. Hidden in a fishing boat, Popov is searching for the parents he has never known. The twins Jamie and Bella join him in the adventure. The children cross paths with a little danger, lots of surprises, and some disappointments, but faith, love, and friendship prove to be stronger than anything else.
This exciting story deals with the basic questions of life: Where do I come from? Why am I here? A Reading Key at the end of the book helps parents and children to discuss these themes together.
Although the book is part of a series, it can be read on its own. It is illustrated throughout with lovely four-color pictures.
