Riassunto: Available together for the first time, Mission City Press is pleased to offer this wonderful literary collection that contains the first novel in each of the four books in the A Life of Faith historical fiction series for girls ages ten to fourteen. Based on and adapted from bestselling nineteenth-century stories and characters created by Martha Finley, these timeless stories of faith, love, and family---with updated language and enhanced features such as fascinating historical forewords---will delight, captivate, and inspire a new generation of readers. Elsie's Endless Wait: A lonely, motherless, eight-year-old Southern heiress growing up in the 1840s longs for the love of her absent father and clings to her deep faith in God to sustain her. Millie's Unsettled Season: A lively and confident twelveyear- old city girl living in Ohio in the 1830s must learn to trust the Lord as her comfortable life is turned upside down by her family's sudden move to the wild Indiana frontier. Violet's Hidden Doubts: A creative and sensitive fourteenyear- old Christian girl living in the late 1870s learns that growing up brings new feelings, new questions, and new challenges to her faith. Laylie's Daring Quest: Against impossible odds, a brave and intelligent seven-year-old slave girl and her fifteen-yearold brother secretly escape their Southern plantation to flee north, discovering not just physical freedom but also spiritual freedom in Christ.
Martha Finley (1828 - 1909) was a remarkable woman whose quiet Christian life has influenced many. A teacher by profession, her writing career began wih Sunday school stories for children. In 1868, her novel Elsie Dinsmore was published and became the publisher's best-selling book that year, spawning a series that sold millions of copies at home and abroad. The Millie books were a follow-up to that series.
Kersten Hamilton is a prolific children's writer known for her fast-paced, dramatic storylines. She is the author of twenty-four books for children and works with the house church movement in her home town of Albuquerque, New Mexico.
