Book Review- Aunt Jane's Hero


Oh y'all!! I just finished the BEST book!! It's called Aunt Jane's Hero and it's by Elizabeth Prentiss. A lot of you will know Mrs. Prentiss from her book Stepping Heavenward or her hymn More Love to Thee, O Christ.

Aunt Jane's Hero is about a lady named Aunt Jane and the people that she loves in her life. This book was a wonderful example of being content no matter what your station in life and reminding Christians to follow Jesus at all times. Though the world may look tempting every once in a while, the Lord's ways are always best and lead to joy.

Ooooh. I don't want to say too much- I want you all to experience it for yourselves. I love getting to know the characters in a book so wonderful as this, but I also hate to see them go, too, when the book is over.

I feel like Aunt Jane has been a friend to me during the reading of this book. Perhaps you will feel the same way, too.
