Book Review of "Down to the Bonny Glen"

Refreshingly delightful and inspiring, this book about Laura Ingalls Wilder's great-grandmother portrays the culture of eighteenth century Scotland.

Melissa Wiley brings her characters to life with warmth, humor and love. Although the book is primarily character-driven, it includes plenty of drama, suspense and excitement.

As with the parables, messages come unobtrusively through the story line. What messages? Respect for all, an appreciation of beauty and nature, the power of prayer and courage, and more.

I highly recommend a mother reading this to her daughter. Both will enjoy.
