Eight-year-old Elsie is enjoying a blissful Christmas holiday season with her family and friends when a crisis arises that threatens life as she knows it. She believes that obeying a request her father has made would violate her conscience, and she must refuse him. He, in turn, believes Elsie is being willful and disobedient, failing to see her refusal as a matter of her deep, abiding faith in God.
Elsie clings to the promise that her heavenly father will never leave her not forsake her as, one by one, all the things she holds dear are taken from her, including even her father's presence. The turmoil brought on by this conflict contributes to a life-threatening illness for Elsie and a life-changing crisis for her father. Meanwhile, her faith is tested to the limits. Recommended for ages 10 to 14.
