“Could you not teach them what you do know?”
Separated from her parents and sent to live with unknown relatives for the summer, Belle Standish clings hard to the promises found in her dear Bible and her beloved hymns. As she grows to love her newly discovered family, she finds much work to be done for her Lord in this neglected field.
But when danger threatens those she loves, Belle’s faith and courage are tested in ways she never imagined. Will God’s promises hold true even in the midst of the storm? And what can she possibly accomplish with just her one little light?
Genre: Historical, western, Christian fiction.
My Rating: 4 stars.
My Recommendation: Anyone 12/13 up . . . While still a good book for younger readers it would be better that a parent/trusted friend/guardian read it before anyone younger than 11/12.
My Favorite Character/s: Ez, was the first cousin who I truly liked reading about, and Ez was so sweet even if he hid it at first. Sure, the other characters were all right but I felt that at first, they were a little flat. After the first few chapters they became more developed and interesting. By the end, I loved all of the characters.
My Verse for Ez is James 1:19
Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: (King James Version)
My Thoughts: At first I didn’t really care for this novel, that is the first chapter was nice and even somewhat interesting until the next chapters showed that it would be an excellent story of how one girl made changes to a whole family. The ending was a little rushed compared to the rest of the book but still nice. I highly suggest that you try this story, especially if you enjoy hymns!
Warnings: Mentions of a man being drunk and causing trouble. There is a gang of outlaws briefly shown.
(I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review and am truly happy to share it — all the thoughts are my own.)
