Patricia St. John wrote this story in 1950; now it has been adapted to appeal to a new generation of children. Pamela Garelick makes Annette, her little brother, Dani, and her nemesis, Lucien, seem like real people. Filled with hatred for Lucien after an accident cripples Dani, Annette wrestles with the need to let go of her hatred if she is going to open her heart to Jesus. Lucien must learn to take responsibility for his actions before he can find acceptance in his community. Garelick’s delivery transports the listener to the mountains of Switzerland, and her relaxed delivery softens the didactic tone of the story.
