Anna's Song by Areline Bolerjack and Barbara Wright Jones.
Blending real history, family story, and a vital Christian faith, the authors present a fictional story that is entertaining and inspiring. The story of a young woman who leaves her troubled family, learns about life and redemption. As she faces and overcomes difficulties readers from pre-teen to senior book lover will be engaged and eagerly turning the page.
The work is illustrated with historic images of objects mentioned in the book bringing home the reality of the time and place. This will greatly enhance the experience for younger readers and may provide a fond 'remember when?' moment for older ones.
The authors move through the story and its themes with a sure hand and the grace of a dancer. It is always believeable, never too much the Pollyanna or too much the melodramatic, and the result is a work of substance and character.
Highly recommended as a good story, with fine inspirational qualities, and an ability to engage the reader in the life and experiences of its characters.
