I only gave a 4 star because i am a little upset that the books are no longer in print.........I read them as a child and I am now 25 .The books helped me grow up! Mandie Shaw is the main character her dad just died and she must put all her trust in the Lord ! thier are 40 other great books but most of them are out of print.....maybe becuase they sent the christian message...i am dissapionted that such a good series is going out of print.

A wonderful series of books! Lois Gladys Leppard the Author knew how to write a book. Even though her first story was written at age 11 , I believe God was using her even then. I am sad to say that she passed away october of 2008 , she was a godly rolemodel for the young girls who read her books. The story takes place in a little town in North Carolina , and mandie has a hard life, her step sister is mean and her mother could care less that mandie was the daughter of her late husband. So the mother decides to put mandie to work for a harsh family in town. And so goes the story of a little girl who finds her REAL mother, I cant tell you how blessed I am that my little boy and girl have such a good series to read! Thankyou lois !
