Good, but a little slow

Personally, the writing style was hard for me to read and it took me longer to read this book than most others. However, the story was good and the descriptions of nature absolutely beautiful! Good morals and story, just harder for me to read as it was very slow paced.


One of my new top favorites

I was surprised when reading this book on how many wholesome morals were encouraged. Freckles is the perfect example of someone who is hardworking, grateful, protective, and humble even to a fault. My brother and I both agreed that this was an excellent book.

I just finished this book and though it took me a bit to get through I really enjoyed it! At first I had a hard time getting into it as it’s a little slower I felt. But I ended up loving it and thinking it was so cute! Finding out Freckles story was so neat and all that he had overcome and his love for Angel.☺️ It was a really cute story!

Level 11

“If you will give me a job where I can earn me food, clothes, and a place to sleep,” he said, “if I can have a Boss to work for like other men, and a place I feel I’ve a right to, I will do precisely what you tell me or die trying.”

“Freckles” is a nameless, one-armed orphan who is too old to live in the state home any longer. When he shows up at a logging camp, thin and ragged and looking for employment, the tough and rugged loggers immediately dismiss him. But the Boss sees something special in Freckles and agrees to give him a job guarding a plot of valuable swampland rich in lumber. Determined to show his gratitude, Freckles risks life and limb to protect the trees and prove his worth to the Boss. While fighting off rattlesnakes, thieves, and loneliness, his kindness and character touch the hearts of the people and animals he meets. In the middle of the Indiana Limberlost, will Freckles find the love and answers to his past that he has always been missing?

“Freckles is more than an engaging, beautifully written story; it’s a book that makes you feel, makes you think, and makes you want to be a better person. We are grateful to offer a clean language version of this beautiful classic book.”—Jenny Phillips
