I've been meaning to read this for a while, so I'm glad I finally got around to it. It has a good Christian message. I wouldn't say it was my utmost favourite, but it was still good. :)

It was an okay, if didactic and unsubtle read. Written in the height of Victorian sensibilities and republished by Lamplighters, as a story of lessons for the young. The bulk of the book is not narrative, but mini-sermonettes by the protagonist's father. It very much struggled to keep my attention, and I only succeeded in finishing it by skimming. Despite the fact that some dramatic and interesting things take place, and despite the occasional moment when the book actually was able to soar close [...]

In telling the story of a Christian girl, Mary, who is falsely accused, this book teaches young readers Biblical virtues in Christian living. The author uses his narrative as well as Mary's father, James, to impart wisdom to readers as James teaches Mary the lessons on abiding faith in God, honesty, modesty, perseverance in the midst of trials, productivity, honoring parents, forgiveness, and many others. It did occur in my mind occasionally throughout my reading that Mary may come across as a l [...]

My mom read this book out loud to us when I was 13. Good read aloud.James is the king's gardener and he deeply enjoys caring for and cultivating flowers. He teaches his daughter Mary many principles of godliness through the flowers. One day Mary is falsely accused of stealing, and the penalty is death. Through many trials and hardships, Mary learns of the goodness of God, the blessing of praying for her enemies, how to consider her trials as a joy, and true forgiveness. I read this book for Libr [...]

This book was my favorite when I read it (I have had many successive favorites), but if I read it again now, it would probably leave a sour taste in my mouth. I think when authors write books like this, they are trying to inspire their readers, but when these perfect, long-suffering heroes and heroines never make a real mistake, or loose faith, what you have is not a real inspiration, but an impossible standard that many people spend their lives attempting to attain, or pretending they already h [...]

It's one of those books that is like almost too overly religious. The heroine in it is just too good that it makes the story unrealistic. I found it extremely annoying because she almost never suffered with being "a good christian" and when she did, she immediately asked for forgiveness, and I don't know how to explain it, I guess you would just have to read it to understand, but I wouldn't recommend reading it to anyone.

We did this one as a family read aloud. It was written over 300 years ago, so the language can be tricky, but it's a lovely tale for tween girls. Todd even liked it. It speaks of staying true to ones faith, even in adversity and has quite a mystery near the end. It's part of lamplighters publishing rare collectiond all of the have been hits so far at our house.

Words that came to mind over the course of reading this book: moralistic, cliche, insipid, trite, pietistic, one-dimensional, cloying, tame, preachy, hilarious, illogical, and repetitive. But definitely memorable.

Definitely a book from long ago. The values of "put up with abuse" were very prevalent. I didn't like how there seemed to be no way for them to prove their innocence. But I did like the attitude the main characters took in knowing that the truth would set them free. Being in positions where I have been wrongly accused, however, made me upset that they didn't even have laws to safeguard against lies that completely took away their lives. That and the fact that no one stood up for them. Overall, n [...]

The story focuses on Mary, a young woman of strong moral fiber, who lives with her father, James, a gardener.  James is a widower, and does his best to raise Mary up into an upstanding and worthy individual.  When a jealous neighbor blames Mary for stealing a valuable ring, Mary and her father are banished from the region.  There was a lot to like about this story, which had its moments of excitement and interest, but every time anything would happen, James would go off on a long and prosy s [...]

Wow, I've learnt a whole lot from this beautiful story. I really like the way Christoph von Schmid beautifully linked life and virtues to flowers and trees in the garden. Anyway, I don't think I can ever regret reading this book.Can someone please show me how to read a book on ? I've tried my best but it seems that no book is readable. Why such bad luck?!😞

This is a simple story about a simple girl MARY.This is very touching story,but this contains the moral of life.Mary's father teaches her to be honest and to remember the ALMIGHTY in every circumstances.He compares every situation with some flower,this is written very beautifully. Some quotes-"May you, my dearchild, be like the violet, modest in your demeanour, careless of gaudy clothing, and seeking to do good without making any fuss about it"."Take care, my dear Mary, that you fall not into th [...]

I've really enjoyed all the Christoph von Schmid books I've read so far and this one is probably a tie in with The White Dove. His stories are all very similar but they have a charm to them that works well. They are adventurous quick reads that I, personally, find hard to put down. Most can be read in 60-90 minutes though this is one of the larger ones.I actually read this as a bookend to my devotion time which worked well since little sermonettes close out most of the chapters. A chapter or two [...]

Mary grows up sheltered and secure in a beautiful cottage with a loving father. She learns lessons about humility, purity and forgiveness under her father's watchful gaze. However, it doesn't last. Even though she loves God and obeys him this does not protect her ultimately from the envy and hatred of others. Mary is given a generous gift of a new dress from her friend Amelia, the daughter of the local landowner. This incites envy from Juliette, Amelia's maid who had wanted the dress for herself [...]

Has excellent principles not just for children. One time it seemed to really drag on as the father was speaking to his daughter, but generally has very good values.It probably is an almost, soon to be totally forgotten work in this age that cares nothing for what is good and right. That wants nothing but it's lusts fulfilled.The only fault I found is that if you expose your little one to this book, they will not receive the most important message of all. The message that Jesus Christ died on the [...]

It is a book full of lessons. In it are upheld the moral standards that are despised in our present world. James raises his family(Mary) in the fear of God, making her see God's beauty and greatness in everything around her. Mary's filial peity, humility, truthfulness, hopeful resignation and prayerfulness touches me as a youth. I've read this book since I was a little child(over 14 years now) sometimes several times a day, yet each time I read it, I shed tears as if I'm reading it for the first [...]

This audiobook was AMAZING. Mary had alot of faith in God even though everything she was going through. I would recommend this book. It was an AMAZING read and I would read it again. It is defiantly one of my favorite books now. This Lamplighter Theatre audio is fantastic because it has sound effects, music, and pretty much everything you can think of. From a door opening and closing,to a horse's hooves clomping against a stone road. It was like listening to an Adventures in Odyssey, yet a diffe [...]

This is the loveliest tale that I have ever read! James, the father of Mary, teaches her the virtues of Christ while still keeping it simple and charming. He doesn't shy away from explaining to his daughter the common dangers and temptations that Christians live daily, but warns her delicately to follow Jesus even when your circumstances are discouraging and hard to bear. I would recommend this book for the young children as well as teenage girls, because the life lessons are for evermore inspir [...]

A wonderful tale from a definitely Christian perspective. The tale is set in Germany 100 years ago. It is the story of a young woman who is wrongly accused of a crime. Her father is a gardener who uses nature to teach his daughter lessons about God. When Mary is accused and convicted of theft she refuses to lie and maintains her innocence. Mary and her father begin their sentence for the crime. Her father's lessons see her through this trial and prepare her for a greater one. A fantastic story!
