Recommended to Jessica by: Deborah
My dear friend Deborah recommended this book for me to read. She said she aspired to be as gracious as Geoffrey. This is one of her favorite books. This book read like the exact book I'd picture her liking. I'm grafetul she shared it with me. That being said, it was entirely too preachy for me. It would be a great book to give to your junior high aged child to teach them the right thing to do, though only if you agree with the strong God message the book sends. I think it is a great way to teach ...more

While intended for a younger audience, this is a very good book for all ages. It does tend to be a little preachy at times although this is definitely understandable considering the time when it was written. Overall, it is very well written and an engaging story. There are some great themes and conflicts in this story; favoritism, justice, compassion and actually makes the reader realize what they value. You find yourself really upset over the favoritism or hypocrisy and see what those things ...more

She aimed for a slightly younger audience this time, and the main character is a young boy. While enjoyable, I did not connect with the characters as well as with the last few. There are some truly delightful parts, but I cried way too much. Some sadness is fine, just not this much. I probably won't re-read this one.
