's review

it was amazing

It is a book full of lessons. In it are upheld the moral standards that are despised in our present world. James raises his family(Mary) in the fear of God, making her see God's beauty and greatness in everything around her. Mary's filial peity, humility, truthfulness, hopeful resignation and prayerfulness touches me as a youth. I've read this book since I was a little child(over 14 years now) sometimes several times a day, yet each time I read it, I shed tears as if I'm reading it for the first time and I make strong resolutions to the kind of girl I want to be. I recommend this book to families, friends... everyone.
