One Noble Journey- Dixie Phillips

One Noble Journey written by Dixie Phillips
Illustrated by Kim Sponaugle
Published by Guardian Angel Publishing

We so commonly see the class divisions in our society between the poor and the rich. Dixie Phillips brings that theme to a small English style town where the rich live in the Highlands, and the poor live in the lowlands.  Journey is an orphan from the lowlands and Bella is the Count's daughter from the highlands and they are the best of friends.
They find a racoon in the woods and as they are bringing it out Bella's father the Count sees them and repremands her for being friends with a lowlander. Journey races home to the orphanage where Parson Nelson tells her 'The ground is level at the foot of the cross'.
Racoons are notorious for their curiousity and mishap and that leads into more trouble for Journey and Bella.
Find out how God softens the Count's heart and how 'The Cross always helps us find our way home".

Adorable story showing that though there are differences here on earth, rich and poor.. that we are all equal when we come to Jesus. I loved how the girls against the odds were friends, and through their friendship they were able to minister to others who were set in their ways.
Beautiful illustrations and a great moral to the end of the story.
