SDA Notes: I can’t think of something of particular interest here.

My Thoughts:  I read this aloud to our seven and nine year old girls and we all enjoyed it. It was riveting and gave us real insight into the hardships of live in the 1800’s and a great example of piety, perseverance and persistence. I would highly recommend it.
