It is a beautiful story and very thought provoking getting you think about God's relationship with us. I'll be getting the sequel June Bug as soon as my new credit card arrives!
Their are several series that will always be with me. The first one is "My Friend Flicka"
by Mary O'Hara. The sequel was "Thunderhead
." The Bicentennial Series by John Jakes. The "Exiles" and all the eight sequels that followed. And Barbara Braddock has had some great series. These make you impatient for the next book to follow to become available.
When the Bicentennial Series was in the making, every morning going to work, you could see every one on the subway had a book in hand and was intently reading it. The whole train car was totally silent. Same going home at night. During the lunch hour, parks and any benches in the area had readers sitting there intently reading. It was a series that grabbed the nation and made readers of a lot of folks that would never think of picking up a book.
