Nine-year-old Premi loves being a student at Charity Abide, and she wants to contribute something meaningful to the school. She has an idea to surprise Missa, their principal, by giving her something she has always desired—a bell for their empty bell tower. But bells are expensive, and it isn’t easy for little children in India to raise money. Premi comes up with a plan that will require the help of the whole school and community. Her faith and selfless determination show that no matter how different people may be, great things can be accomplished when they come together.

“Born in 1892, Jean Bothwell, a very gifted, award-winning writer, wrote dozens of wonderful books set in India—a land that she knew and loved from her years as a missionary and her experience as a history teacher. Her book The Empty Tower is just the kind of gentle, beautiful book that fills our children’s minds with knowledge, great messages, and beautiful language.”—Jenny Phillips
