A very moving story.

(5 stars)

I enjoyed this story very much. It was a testimony to the loving father to his daughter who was his only child. He taught her to stay close to God in all of life's ups and downs. And especially when life was the hardest to bear. I hope that I can stand the pressures of this life as well as she did.

So good, even third or fourth time around.

Excellent reader very engaging. Listened the whole book in one evening. It had been several years since I had heard the story. It had been a favorite for my daughters when they were young.
