A wonderful addition to your reading list!

The Captive MaidenDISCLAIMER: Parents should read the following post before they allow their children to read it.

Recently I read and reviewed The Captive Maiden by Melanie Dickerson.

And I’m here to tell you that this book would be a wonderful addition to your reading list. Or rather, your daughters’ reading lists!

One of our most difficult jobs as parents is to help them chose the right reading material.

We want our children to enjoy reading and experience the wonder of imagination but we also want to make sure they aren’t confused or upset by what they read. It’s a fine line to walk.

For myself – I know that I have been hesitant to push the more traditional version of popular fairy tales. We made the decision long ago as a family to be as honest with each other as possible. That means we don’t pretend that “magic” (as the world sees it anyway) is real.

We believe in a supernatural God and we believe that he does supernatural things but if it’s not of God, it’s not something we embrace.

No Santa or Easter Bunny for us – unless you count the chocolate kind, that is.
(The reason I stated above that Parents should read the post first)

The Captive Maiden tells the story of Cinderella with a firm foundation in faith, embracing God and leaving the hokey magic from the traditional story out.

BRAVO Melanie Dickerson! GREAT JOB! And a GREAT BOOK too!

There are several others as well and, while I haven’t read them yet, I plan to – soon! And I feel confident in saying that – if they’re anything like The Captive Maiden, they’ll be wonderful!
