Product Description

In Book 2: A Bird, A Girl and a Rescue by J.A. Myhre, Eleven-year-old Kiisa had no idea why her father and mother would send her to boarding school in a remote village. She wondered why they couldn't all stay together in their beautiful valley home. But no matter what she said they were firm. She must go to school, and not any school, this particular boarding school. As she said a tearful goodbye to her father, he whispered, "For such a time as this . . . . Remember that phrase, and try to open your trunk soon. You'll find something unexpected inside." When Kiisa opened the trunk, she was astonished to find a small heap of black and white feathers that quickly unfolded into a little bird, a wagtail to be exact. Her surprise only deepened when the bird started to speak, "My name is Njili, I am one of the Messengers, though a small one. I have been sent to assist you with the Rescue." Kiisa had no idea what she meant, but she would soon find out.

One dark night Kiisa discovers why she had to come to the boarding school, "For such a time as this," And Kiisa and the bird embark on rescue mission that includes rebels, stolen girls, illegal logging of the forest, a dangerous cobra, and of course, more messengers---birds and a talking monkey---who help in unexpected ways. Kiisa sets out to rescue others, but along the way she is rescued herself from fear and bitterness, as she learns that bravery is nothing more (or less) than being in the right place at the right time, and going forward despite her fears.

    Heres a childrens book that will be loved in any Christian home. The plot is set in Africa and has the unique thrills of that continent. The author, J. A. Myhre, is a doctor in Africa. Her 20 years in Africa makes her able to visualize accurately situations there. The stories here began as stories for her own children and its a blessing that they are available for children everywhere.

    The story transports us to the life of an amazing girl named Kiisa. She is dropped by her father at a school where she feels out of place and has to take a stand to do right and suffers for it. A little bird befriends her and encourages her. Later, the story becomes riveting when the school is attacked. What Kiisa does makes the story ( I dont want to give away the plot!).

    Beyond the gripping nature of the story itself is the description of the unsugarcoated nature of evil in our world and the right kind of courage in its presence. This story challenges our children to be righteously courageous in our world. I recommend it.

    I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.
