"Tales of the Defended Ones" by Beth Guckenberger

Childhood can be a difficult time for anyone, but it most especially difficult for those who have suffered loss or heartache. What if a child loses a parent, feels that everything is hopeless, or is enslaved?  In her new book, Ms. Guckenberger not only tells the stories of Ben, Joseph, Antonio, Caitlyn and Jorani, she also lets us feel the story. But, the stories are not all about the troubles in life, but also about the One who lifts us all. Our Great Defender, God. 

This book is written for those much younger than me, but I found myself drawn into each of the stories. It is important that we teach our children how to care about others no matter where they live, and this book can be one of the tools in our toolbox. It is easy to read and relate to, with the lessons learned without any prodding. It is definitely a book that will tug on the heartstrings of readers, young and older alike. I recommend it to families for their library as it will create some great conversations. I received my free review copy from Litfuse for participation in the blog tour.
