We so commonly see the class divisions in our society between the poor and the rich. Dixie Phillips brings that theme to a small English style town where the rich live in the Highlands, and the poor live in the lowlands. Journey is an orphan from the lowlands and Bella is the Count's daughter from the highlands and they are the best of friends. They find a racoon in the woods and as they are bringing it out Bella's father the Count sees them and repremands her for being friends with a lowlander. Journey races home to the orphanage where Parson Nelson tells her 'The ground is level at the foot of the cross'. Racoons are notorious for their curiousity and mishap and that leads into more trouble for Journey and Bella. Find out how God softens the Count's heart and how 'The Cross always helps us find our way home". Adorable story showing that though there are differences here on earth, rich and poor.. that we are all equal when we come to Jesus. I loved how the girls against the odds were friends, and through their friendship they were able to minister to others who were set in their ways. Beautiful illustrations and a great moral to the end of the story.

Is it possible for a girl from a rich family to be friends with an orphan girl who lives in the poor section of town? The village of Westbury has two sides. The rich live in the highlands, and the poor live in the lowlands. Bella is a girl from the wealthy family of Count Billingsley, but she likes to play with Journey who lives in Hannah's Hope home for orphans run by Parson Nelson. One day, when Bella and Journey are walking through the field to pick wildflowers, they find a motherless baby raccoon which they name Bandit. Shortly afterwards, the Count's coach comes by and he orders Bella not to play with Journey, so Bella tearfully goes home with Bandit hidden in a basket of flowers. Very early the next morning, the Count pounds on the orphanage door and accuses Journey of stealing his gold pocket watch, but Journey denies it. Then they all learn that Bella is missing and also see that a fierce storm is brewing. Will they find Bella? And what did happen to the Count's watch? This book, lusciously accompanied with colorful illustrations by Kim Sponaugle, is a lovely story about kindness, friendship, and forgiveness. One of author Dixie Phillips's previous books, Stubby's Destiny, which I had the privilege of reviewing for Stories for Children Magazine, won The Award for Literary Excellence from Books& in the Best Children's Animal Story category for 2008. One Noble Journey is another wonderful story that children will enjoy.
