This is an excellent Christian fiction. Very well written. It is an adult read, or for older teens. Nothing too graphic but the harsh realities of life. The effects of sin passed from one generation to the next are portrayed and yet the healing of The Lord is clear too.
This is a sweet book about Corrie Ten Booms early work after the war. She tells short stories about people she met and things that happened to her during her early years of work. She uses each to teach truths about the Christian life. Very sweet. A lot of good food for thought.
This is a classic! Montgomery's style will endear you to Anne as well as to Matthew and Marissa Cuthbert who adopt this rea headed orphan and give her a home and love. Anne is creative and ends up in much innocent mischief inspite her best efforts to do good. From coloring her hair to accidentally drinking too much cordial, she always seems to be in a mess, but generations can't help but love her. Great read aloud.
I really enjoyed this book very well done. This was the authors first attempt at writing a novel and he does a good job of developing the characters. The story moves along well. The ending is a bit abrupt, but overall a good wholesome story based on the Chicago fires of the late 1800's. Very realistic as to the hardness of some peoples hearts.
This is a really fun book very well written. Great for boys, but my girls enjoyed it too. The bad guy meets his match in the loveable Brighty. President Teddy Roosevelt even shows up to hunt mountain lions. Great read aloud.
Great book for boys. Exciting adventure on the prairies. Historical fiction that is a fun read. The author wrote with wit and interest of the indians and explorers of the time. The book centers around a young man and his dog and the adventures they have in a party of men sent to befriend several tribes. They make it as far west as the Rocky Mountains and hunt buffalo, forde raging rivers and nearly lose their scalp on the way. Great character building book.
This is a really good book about a girl who did not have the love of either of her parents yet grew up to know the true love of The Lord Jesus Christ. She had a sad lonely childhood filled with hurt and disappointment, yet triumphed and became a missionary and served The Lord with a willing heart. Beautiful true story.
