Theodora's Children ... by Rick Nau

Gretchen is her name. She's the heroine of the story. Some people call her Gretch the Wretch. Not a very nice thing to say about someone, especially if they suffer from a loneliness so intense it could blow the roof off the sky. Certainly she's not the only person in the world who's felt this way. You might have felt this way yourself. Or you might feel this way at this very moment, just as Gretchen felt at the beginning of her story. This isn't to say she's not a wonderful person. If you get to know her, you'll find out how wonderful she is. If you don't, you'll never know. 


This book is for anyone who loves:
  • Stories with a solid Christian Theme
  • Stories that are Bigger than Life
  • Stories about Courage
  • Stories about Overcoming Fear
  • Stories about Friendship
  • Christmas


Theodoria's Children by Rick Nau is delightful story told by a loving great grandfather to his two rambunctious great grandchildren. The story captivates the children with amazing over the top embellishments of a little lonely girl which entices them to ask questions and add their opinions.

This novel is a spiritual journey, full of hidden meanings and symbolic imagery about finding faith in God. At first I thought it
would be a great read for younger children, but the story of Gretchen took so many turns that I got confused as to where the tale was going and what the symbolisms were representing.

All came together in the end, paving the way for the next in the series. If you love allegories, this is the book for you!
