I am loving this book! It is truly written beautifully and filled with inspirational nuggets sprinkled all through the story. My 11 year old avid reader said, “it is beautiful and is very enjoyable”. I really feel uplifted after reading it!
This book is perfect for older girls to experience through another’s eyes, the very real struggle at this age (and any age) to care more about what’s right than about what others think or say. It’s also a beautiful story of unconditional love, forgiveness, and new beginnings.
This book deals with the heavier issues of building character. Anna moves away from what she’s always known to mostly unfamiliar people and what she feels is the burden of getting to know a family member. She struggles throughout the book with her feelings of wanting to please people and learn what is the right thing to do. This book will teach your children courage, bravery, loyalty, and to be true to the commandments of God.
I absolutely love books that teach lessons of character, and this author is able to grab your emotions to feel the turmoil in the journey. This book is about a young girl who wants to please those around her, to look good and fit in. She loses sight of the things that matter most because of a desire to please others. At the end of the book, her eyes are opened to see the person she truly wants to be. She learns to be a genuine friend, to be truthful and to love deeply.
After a lifetime of loneliness in London, fourteen-year-old Anna is finally leaving the city to live with her aunt and uncle in the countryside town of Waverly. However, when she arrives, she finds that things are not what they seem. Her efforts to please everyone lead her to a desperate choice between what is right and what is easy. Surrounded by enticements for the finer things in life, she must search her heart and make a decision that will forever alter the course of her life.
