I am of two minds about this book. On the one hand, it is a sweet, simple story with a happy ending. These are not bad traits in a comfort read. On the other hand, it seemed almost too simple and sweet this time around. It lacked the struggle for a relationship with God that I enjoyed in Jane Orcutt's The Living Stone. It lacked the nitty-gritty details of pioneer life that I appreciate in Lauraine Snelling's books. I can understand why I liked this book in my early teens, but ten years later, I feel as if I've outgrown it.
