When a new school teacher comes and teaches things that don't agree with his religion Josh faces some hard decisions.Should he like the teachers daughter even though she isn't a Christian?Should he sacrifice his education for his beliefs? This story is beautifully written through the eyes of Josh.I just couldn't put this book down. Be sure to read the others!
It was so captivating, I just couldn't put it down! May 17, 1998
It is mainly of a boy growing up on a farm and all of the hardships he encounters along the way of growing up. Aunt Lou, who has played the part of his mother ever since his parents death, is also growing up. I think anyone is interested in reading a wonderful, family related book this is the one.
