Publisher's Summary

Eight-year-old Elsie Dinsmore is enjoying a blissful Christmas holiday season with her family and friends when a crisis arises that threatens life as she knows it. She believes that obeying a request her father has made would violate her conscience, and she must refuse him. He, in turn, believes Elsie is being willful and disobedient, and he fails to see her refusal as a matter of her deep, abiding faith in God.

Elsie clings to the promise that her heavenly Father will never leave her nor forsake her as, one by one, all the things she holds dear are taken from her, including even her father's presence. The turmoil brought on by this conflict contributes to a life-threatening illness for Elsie and a life-changing crisis for her father. Meanwhile, her faith is tested to the limits.

Great Story

The story of Elsie continues right where book one leaves off. Again, the story is fantastic, however, the narrator's vocal characterizations aren't as powerful as in the previous book (different narrator). Still a great story overall. I highly recommend it!

perfect except for one thing. for a Christian book

I enjoyed most of the books. There however some moments where I feel that the family n friends of this sweet God fearing child are most of the time very unfairly cruel to the point that it almost seems unfathomable.

Pleased

I enjoyed this story. I liked the readers voice and use of it to make the characters different. I especially liked the amount of scripture used to teach us how to love and obey God.
