Out of the Storm Reviews

  • Clara Roberts

    This was a pleasant children's book written to tell the story of a young 12 year old girl whose father died in 1946 in WWII. Now she and her mother and 9 year old brother must live with a great aunt on a sheep farm. The girl, Mandy is afraid of the sheep but it is her responsibility to bring the sheep at night. She is miserable because she refuses to believe that her father is dead. It was written on the fifth grade level.

  • Mylinda

    This is a book written for older elementary children but I quite liked it. It was just a very sweet book with a good message and a nice story that was very well written.

  • Terri

    The book is written for the younger reader, and it has a good story.
