There hasn't been one Jody Hedlund's book that I haven't loved. She never disappoints. I never would have known this was a juvenile book without checking first.
This book centers around Bennet and Sabine. They each have a cross to bear. Bennet needs to save his ancestral home and belongings. Sabine has a secret that she cannot share with anyone.
With a little scheming, Bennet and Sabine are brought together. I enjoyed their banter back and forth and was surprised in the twist of the story at the end.
Sabine was caged like a bird. In order to be set free, she had to be open and allow herself to trust in the Lord that all will be ok.
Bennet learned that belongings and treasures really didn't make you rich. His relationship with his loved ones was what mattered.
Great story for a senior like me as well as the audience it was written for.
Once again, Ms. Hedlund entertained me with her excellent writing skills.
Jody Hedlund is a best-selling and award-winning author who loves fairy-tales and happily-ever-afters. She makes her home in Midland, MI with her husband and five teen-aged children. When she’s not writing another of her page-turning stories, you can usually find her sipping coffee, eating chocolate, and reading.
