Overview

Treasures of the Snow by Patricia M. St. John

A story of vicious revenge and hard repentance

Annette and Lucien are enemies. After Annette gets Lucien into trouble at school, he decides to get back at her by threatening the most precious thing in the world to her: her little brother Dani. But tragedy strikes. Annette is so filled with rage that she sets out to alienate and humiliate Lucien at every turn. As Lucien seeks to repent and restore, light floods both of their dark hearts and Christ proves that He makes all things new.

Patricia St. John lived from 1914 to 1992. This is probably her most famous book and is a lovely story about repentance and forgiveness. Set in the Swiss Alps, it tells of Annette, her younger brother Dani who is injured in a fall caused by a neighbor boy Lucien, Annette's anger at Lucien, Lucien's sorrow for his deed, and how heeding the Savior's voice brought about healing. There are a few references to denominational beliefs and practices, but these do not take away from the beauty of the tale. My only question is, just what about Miss St. John's original language needed to be "sensitively adapted"? Moody has a bad habit of "updating" many of the books in their catalogue (they did this with the original "Sugar Creek Gang" series). My personal opinion is that by reading such books children miss out on some of the quaintness of expression common in former times. I would like to get a copy of the original and compare it with the new edition. In any event, this was still a very enjoyable and profitable book to read. We also watched the movie based on it and liked it too.

A true classic written in a special way to captivate young and old readers, alike. This book gently, and beautifully illustrates the gospel with ways young children love. Happy reading!

A delightful story set in the mountains of Switzerland, this book teaches about the importance of forgiveness, but it's not preachy. A great read---highly recommended!

PSJ really did a good job with this book. This book shows not only how one can change from bad to good, but how one can change from good to bad if they get bitter over what someone else has done. This book has deeply affected my life and it is great for all ages. So click, drop, bag, and enjoy

I have just finished reading this book aloud to my four boys ages 5-13. They loved the old fashioned setting of Switzerland. The story was fast paced enough to keep their attention, and I loved the lessons it taught. How can anyone hold a grudge after reading this story of Annette's forgiveness for a bully who made her baby brother crippled? This is a great story for adults too, and I plan on buying it for presents.
