|Author||Patricia St. John|
Well-known English writer Patricia St. John tells the story of Francis, an 11-year-old boy whose need to be accepted involves him with wrong company and personal danger. St. John presents a realistic story of what children who find themselves in trouble are like. She clearly portrays the emptiness of trying to find satisfaction in hurting and destroying, while also showing that joy and fulfillment are found by loving and serving others. Children from breaking or broken homes will be able to relate to the pain and frustration Francis experiences and hopefully find, as he does, where the river of God's love begins. Very clear Gospel presentation.
