Can the proud and willful Horace Dinsmore learn to love his only child---a little girl whose first allegiance is to God?

This book makes you feel closer to God in every chapter. Everytime Elsie would pray to God, and ask for him to help her, I felt a sense of peace come over me. You feel so sad for little Elsie when she feels like nobody loves her, and when her father is mean to her. This book is a great book, and I can't wait to read the rest in the series! ( )
