Riley's Reviews - Almost Home

Almost Home by Wendy Lawton

Almost Home by Wendy Lawton is the story of Mary Chilton, who was one of the 1620 Mayflower Pilgrims. Mary wants to find a place in the world to belong.  When she was a young child she moved from England to Holland and then from Holland to the New World.  In the beginning, Mary thought home was a place with stuff.  In the end, she came to realize that home is where you can be closest to God and where your family is.  I thought this book was a very good story, teaching that material things are not all you make them out to be.  I highly recommend Almost Home because I thought it taught good moral values about material things not being very important. Almost Home is part of the Daughters of the Faith series.
