so inspirational

(5 stars)

All of Pansy's books strengthen me in my walk with the Lord! I, also, love the way Tricia G. narrates!

A Happy Ending

(5 stars)

A perfect ending to the book and series. Ester finds her place in the will of God and is greatly blessed.

A discussion of marriage reasons

(5 stars)

Pansy's books often illuminate a particular aspect of Christian ethics, which are just as relevant today as they were then. Amongst the life lessons in this book is the choice to withdraw from a relationship where two cannot agree on Christian principles.

What a series!

(5 stars)

I read the entire series and loved it. This book is not just for young girls (For whom it was intended.) I am a 67 year old man and enjoyed each book in this series. I highly recommend that all Christian's read and learn a little of what seems lacking in today's world. Also, the narrator is excellent!

God has His Way

(4 stars)

I wish the author would show God's people in a more humble and giving light. and people like Sarah needs to have a heart's change to show God does change people...

(4 stars)

interesting that in every book in this series someone dies. why? other than that I liked Esther Randall's strong character Alot!

(5 stars)

the best attempt to describe conversion that I've read


(3 stars)

The book starts out well, with characters reasonably well rounded. By the end, new characters, even tho pivotal, are rather flat.
