Home Maid Simple’s Review

I didn’t really know what to expect when I picked up StarPassage for the first time. The storyline intrigued me, and I’ve always loved a good historical fiction. Adding in the concept of time travel is not unique, but a rare find as many authors avoid the fine details that come with it. Of course in a piece of fiction, the author gets to make his own rules. 

Book 1 in the StarPassage series actually had me tearing up. As the main family endures some trials that are all too common in our society. I felt the author has a good grasp of family values, what really matters in this life, and wants to share those through his writing with the world. These same values show consistently through each book, and the reader can anticipate walking away with both historical knowledge and a good moral lesson. 

I did, however, struggle with the style of writing. Mr. Burbidge has a great story idea, but spends much of the writing in over-explaining some of the historical aspects and what things may have looked like. I can appreciate that he was influenced by Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings and its lengthy descriptions, unfortunately, it just isn’t working in StarPassage, and rather left me a bit bored from the actual story. 

I look forward to seeing more good, wholesome books from Clark Burbidge.
