"I’ll always say my prayers . . . and if God doesn’t answer them at once I shall know it’s because He’s planning something better for me."
“It was so lovely, Heidi stood with tears pouring down her cheeks, and thanked God for letting her come home to it again. She could find no words to express her feelings, but lingered until the light began to fade and then ran on.”
Written in 1880, this book is increasingly forgotten in modern years. Although I loved Heidi's story, many of my friends have never even heard of the work. Quite the tragedy; the story is beautifully written and depicts the innocence and sweetness of childhood. The story of the gentle Swiss girl living with her grandfather in the Alps should live on in the hearts and minds of children everywhere.
