    Great moral read

  • By K. Reyburn on 25 April 2003

    I read this book on the referral of an older woman in my church. She had received it as a gift when she was 10 years old and loved it. I am 27 and I loved it. It is written in the style of the day, in terms of the small morals that are inserted in an open way instead of hidden so deeply inside that you can't find them, and in that the characters speak very directly and clearly to the issues. I loved the character of the girl's father ("he thought that life of little worth which could not afford an hour or at the very least a half an hour before the day began in which to approach the throne of the Almighty...") and his influence on his daughter; I loved the humble and modest attitude of the girl. I think girls these days are encouraged to be independent and strong instead of humble and modest. While it is good to be confident in Christ, it is also excellent to be reminded of those characteristics Christ would have you display...and this book reminds you of those.

    My Mother read this book to me sixty years ago, and I was so glad to read it again, I remembered most of the story, but now realise, it was a lesson in Christianity, as my Mother was a devout Christian.

    I read this book as a child and still remember the story. I have told my children about the story and will like them to read it too.

    I first read this book more than 50 years ago and have tried to get my own copy for years with out success. Imagine my joy when I found it on Amazon. I bought copies for my grandchildren I hope it will mean as much to them as it does to me. Great story with a superb message for all who read it

    I read it as a child and got my 10 year old to read it also. She asked me to give it 6 stars.
