I first read Elnora's story when I was 12, and I reread this favorite every June, for the moths. ( )

I loved this book a lot. I’d love my daughters to meet boys like Philip, and hold the world in wonder like Elnora. My only complaint is when the story is wrapped up and yet the author felt the need to add in the part for Phillip’s ex, how she came to know herself and repent of her selfish life to that point. It was very tidy and pat, and felt awfully convenient and moralistic, and not really necessary. It didn’t spoil the book for me, tho, Ms. Stratton-Porter’s way of delighting in nature and extolling virtue is a joy to read. ( )

Entertaining, but not a classic. ( )

I see why people have this book on shelves with names such as "Comfort Reads". It was definitely a feel-good book. ( )
