The Good Shepherd is finding more Lost Lambs! May 18, 2008
This charming story lets you ride alongside Ruth and her friends, as the Good Shepherd is discovered in their hearts. Be there with her and Philip (her brother), on their treasured romps in the woods while trying to evade Aunt Margaret's never-ending slew of chores. Help them to earn money to get their dream camera, so that they can finish their prized, homemade bird book. But most of all, they find out the best secret of all--the Tanglewoods' Secret.
The book had very good morals. Plenty of amusement to keep you entertained by all the colorful characters. I'm excited to read more by this author!
God's Grace Jul 28, 2005
This book shows how when we are bad then come to him He will forgive us for He is merciful
A book about children, but anyone will enjoy! Aug 25, 2000
I was given a copy of The Tanglewoods' Secret when I was probably 10 or 12. I read it and loved it then. I'm now nearly 29. I just picked it up again tonight, and read it cover to cover. The struggles of the main character, a nine-year-old girl, to learn to overcome her fiery temper and selfish spirit, and her discovery of the Shepherd who can and does teach her (and others) how to be good, can speak to anyone who ever wanted their own way over another's. If you are looking for a good, pastoral story with a truly uplifting message (so hard to find today!), then order this book.
Excellent allegory of the parable of the lost sheep Oct 20, 1999
I have never read a more meaningful and thought provoking allegory of the Saviors parable of the lost sheep. In addition the story contains very beautiful and uplifing examples of what can happen when we let ourselves be found by Him. I am very grateful that I found this book.
