Summary

“How should a seven year old child react when forced to be separated from a mother who meant everything to her? How should she react when she learns that the aunt with whom she was sent to live doesn’t really care about her? Will she be able to make real friendships with people outside her family? Would she be able to take her belief in God as a comfort? If you want to find answers to all these questions, read the enjoyable novel “The Wide, Wide World”. There, you will see how the amazing Ellen Montgomery reacts to all those things, and many, many more”.

- Dramatic and Inspiring

I liked the way the author told this story. The characters are diverse in personality and temperament, bringing, at times, surprising elements to the plot. It is quite refreshing. Enjoyed listening to the reader. Good job.
