    5. I read this as a child and it left a beautiful impression. I've been trying to find it for years but I couldn't remember the full title or the author; so pleased to have finally found it! This is a book you want a copy of to share with other people.




    6. I really liked this story, I read it in a day. So easy to read & hard to put down as you have to know how things go for Isa on her journey.
