They screamed by her home one Friday night and stopped in front of the Thomas's house down the street. What happened next started a chain of events that got Carmen's attention and taught her some hard lesson about domestic violence and how her own desire to be in charge can spin out of control.
Accompanied by her faithful friends, Layah and Rianna, and guided by her parents, ten-year-old Carmen also learned about her own need for forgiveness and took an exciting step as a young Christian. It was a packed summer--full of friends and family and faith--and in the end, Carmen learned how to develop her own Golden Spirit. Recommended for ages 8 to 12.
Third in the Carmen Browne Series, Golden Spirit finds Carmen meeting new challenges and facing serious issues such as domestic violence, and her own tendency toward bossiness. This series focuses on issues faced by many preteen girls and teaches inspiring lessons about dealing with gossip, self-esteem, and body image.
