Happiness seems to mistakenly be based on our circumstances, but young Crystal of Rohanish proves that Christlike love shines through any trial and sorrow. The book was eventful, and the characters were inspiring.

I bought this book for me to read not my kids and quite enjoyed it! It had so much depth in the layers, and I thought I knew the ending but was pleasantly surprised! This wasn’t fast paced by any means and kind of meandered through its telling which is why I absolutely loved it!

Immediately as I started reading this book, I loved it. The setting and characters fit the plotline excellently, and the descriptive writing was beautiful. Chrystal portrayed child innocence perfectly and definitely encouraged me to be a gentler older sister and a kinder person.

This book is a gentle witness of God’s love for all His children and His desire to touch and bless all. If God feeds and provides for the birds in the sky, oh how He will feed and provide for His children.

“She knew scarcely anything of God, the poor little untaught Island child, but the Great Father Himself sent his teachings and strengthening, and one of the ways in which He taught her was by the witness of His sky.”

Chrystal McRanald was a lonely little person. She lived with her grandfather at the north end of the island, too far from any neighbors for her to have much other company than that of the gruff old man.

So begins the heart-tugging story of Chrystal, who lives on an isolated, barren island off the coast of Scotland. Unexpected love and friendship, as well as unforeseen tragedy, delicately entwine in this beautiful tale.

“With extraordinary description and deep insights into human life, Chrystal of the Sea Larks is an example of powerful, engaging literature that has been lost to the world. We are grateful to bring this book back to life.” —Jenny Phillips
