Charming little book about Scandinavian Lutherans. I read it while dating a Swedish Lutheran and it gave in insight into his family.
One of the best books I have ever read. You feel the warmth and happiness of being a part of this family. I also found it spiritually uplifting as there were many lessons learned thru their experiences. It also gives wonderful insight to the life of homemakers in the early 1920's. Very inspiring! A book every Christian homemaker would want to read.
This book is wonderful. It is full of stories of perseverance, hope, and the encouraging message that our Lord has us always in the palm of His hand - it is we who forget. I will be keeping this book and pulling it out regularly for a re-read.
One of the best books I have read in a long time!

This is a wonderful little book. I'm always looking for copies to give to my friends. There are sad stories in here, but there are also life lessons and much encouragement. I recommend this for any wife who's husband is called to the ministry. I also think it's good for anyone to read. Even my children love this book. I'm so thankful that my friend let me read it all of those years ago.
