I thoroughly enjoyed this book. After the first chapter, I was hooked. Hennie Comfort used her past experiences to help younger residents of Middle Swan overcome problems in their own lives. She accomplished this with creative thinking, prayer, and an open heart full of compassion for others. Isn't that how christians are supposed to live?
