I greatly enjoyed this story! It is inspiring, emotional, and uplifting. This is the story of a young girl who is born to privilege, but after her mother dies giving birth to her, and then her beloved father grows ill several years later and also dies. While the girl is heartbroken she is also looking forward to the adventure of living in a new distant land with her Uncle, who has become her caregiver.
The distant land turns out to be very humbling. I loved that this character when faced with some very humbling experiences did not become angry, but was grateful for the expansion of her understanding of others and the world around her.
There is much more involved with this tale as she grows older, make mistakes, learns from them, and repents. It is an aspiring read, that is written very well. The story moved along seamlessly and kept me riveted to the pages. The author did a fantastic job of bringing each person within the pages to life. I highly recommend this book and would love to hear what you thought of it.
