It has been awhile since I read this book, everytime I see the cover I remember how much I loved it.
It was a beautiful story, the boy Josh was delightful, you could hear his accent through the pages. I would have no hesitation recommending this book, its a lovely, enjoyable and sweet read that will stay with you.
if you are looking for a lighthearted read this is the book for you. it is sweet and encouraging, reminding us how important family & community are. quite predictable if you've ever read a Janette Oke story, but still worth it. normally this author writes from a female perspective, but this is refreshing in that she uses a young boy as the narrator.
