Several years ago, my friend lent me the Christy Miller series by Robin Jones Gunn. I read them in an incredibly short amount of time and loved each one. I was thrilled to be able to get a copy of Volume 1, the first three books in the series, from Blogging for Books. These books were such an encouragement and a good example for me as a preteen. Throughout the whole series, there is a strong theme of the importance of following God, purity, influencing friends for Christ, and many other things which made the characters wonderful role models, while at the same time staying true-to-life. This series influenced me to make a lot of good decisions and because of that, I am so glad that I had the opportunity to read these books. I hope that reading this series will also influence many other preteen and teenage girls to live life for Christ. Reading the first three books in the series again years later was a breath of fresh air. I felt like I was reuniting with old friends! I have thoroughly enjoyed re-reading Volume 1 over the past few days. I recommend this book, as well as the rest of the series. The Christy Miller Collection, Volume 1, includes the first three books in the series- (1) Summer Promise, (2) A Whisper and a Wish, and (3) Yours Forever. Any description that I could write would not give the books justice! You simply must read them for yourself! :-) Thank you to WaterBrook Multnomah for giving me my free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review!
