I enjoyed the book not only for the story but the great discussion points. The phrase “somewhere around the corner” is repeated throughout and symbolizes a person’s dreams for the future – and that the character had to walk around the corner themselves and go get their dreams.
This is another book I found at the library. My first impression was “old and outdated” because, well, it is old and outdated! The topic interested me though; I was curious how the sheep stations differed from American ranches
So far this is my top pick for learning about Australia. It’s as informative as a textbook but a lot more fun to read.
Nehemiah’s heart was broken for his people, and God appointed him to be a catalyst. He was also very wise and strong. I aspire to be like him – to love God, allow Him to break my heart for what breaks His, and to keep from being deceived.
I checked this book out from the library because it was both on Sonlight’s Core F reading list, as well as on My Father’s World’s library reading list. After skimming it though, I felt it was too much sadness for the girls right now…I have read some of Pearl S. Buck’s books in the past and loved them, and I really would like to read this one in the future – maybe as summer reading.
This book fit the bill for what we needed. It was short, well written and to the point, and made the reader feel without dragging on and on.
This book is precious for one simple fact – it’s true! The storyline appears to be straight from fiction. A young soldier, a traumatized and starving little girl with a heart tattoo… a nurse returning a life-long favor to an old man. I’m so glad Johnnie Wallen’s story was told so it’s not lost to future generations.
