Reviews - What do customers think about Millie's Grand Adventure, Book 6?
An okay addition to the series. Aug 26, 2004
In this book, Millie Keith, a bright and caring 16-year-old living in the 1830s, has decided to follow in the footsteps of her Aunt Wealthy, who never married and travels to exotic places to tell people about God. Then the man she loves, Charles Landreth, shows up, but Millie doesn't want to compromise her Christianity for Charles.
I didn't like this book as much as the others because at the end of the book (and don't read any more of this, because this gives away the ending) Aunt Wealthy writes Millie and asks her to go to New Orleans and help her witness to people there with her talent of piano-playing. I thought that the next book would be about Millie's experiences in New Orleans, but instead, there is an epilogue that simply explains what's going on 6 years later. Charles comes back and asks again for Millie's hand in marriage, and Millie says something about daffodils (I think this implies a "yes"). So in the next book, Millie will be around 23 years old. I was hoping the series would continue to follow Millie's teen years.
Also, Millie isn't much like normal Christian teenagers. She rarely makes a mistake and has a kind of self-discipline I barely see in 17-year-olds. That might be because of the time period, but still, it's a little annoying.
