She is only trying to survive...to stay out of harm's way...to keep warm...to find some food.
To him money is everything. He is trying to earn more...to save more. God brings them together to teach them about his love and how they can mutually bless one another.
This is two stories put together. These stories are old classics. The language has been changed updated only in places where it would cause confusion for modern readers. These delightful Christian stories remind me of Charles Dickens' style only the gospel is much more explicit. Think Oliver Twist only with more hope. Jessica is an incredibly likable character. These stories cover the difficulties of her life without sugar coating them but also without unnecessary graphic violence. The short-comings of specific people and the Church at large are a realistic part of the story. The book illustrates how God moves in the lives of the characters to both provide for the problems and deal with the characters' hearts.
The stories are interesting and capture your attention. The characters are well-written as one expects from good old literature. The narrator does a good job and captures the mood of the story. She has trouble pronouncing the word "especially," pronouncing it exspecially, but she is otherwise perfect. This minor flaw does not detract in any way from the story. This is a great book and very family friendly. It would be wonderful for a family listen-aloud or a great bedtime story.
I received this book for free from the author, publisher, or narrator on Audio-Book Boom in exchange for an honest review.
