Overview

If you have a soft spot for Eleanor H. Porter's beloved novel Pollyanna, you should definitely add Just David to your reading list. Written just a few years after Porter penned her best-known work, this emotionally resonant and uplifting tale mines many of the same themes, albeit from a starkly different vantage-point. David is a young boy who has lived an extremely sheltered life in the mountains, with just his father and his beloved violin to keep him company. When his father is beset by a grave illness, David is thrust out of his idyllic existence and is forced to grapple with the reality of the outside world. Will this innocent be able to make it through this trying time with his virtue -- and his life -- intact?

I just loved this story. I learned a lot from the main character David. It was inspiring and beautiful. If you like lovely, fluffy stories, this is for you!

This is an inspiring story of a boy named Just David, lived on a mountain for years with his father who taught him the true gift of music. The music of a bubbling brook, the sound of ruffling trees, the sweet songs of the birds; these sounds Just David would play on the fiddle/violin. Every sound was a great "Orchestra of Life" and we only need to be still to hear. When his father dies in the barn of older couple, Just David makes not only a profound impression on their lives, but the entire mountain community. I loved this book, just wish it had several more about Just David's life. GREAT READ!

Just David has been a family favorite for decades. My mom read it out loud to us on a car trip some 30 years ago. A book enjoyed by people of all ages, who are willing to look at the world anew. Shawna CPM
