A beautiful edition of Elizabeth Prentiss’ classic work, a book many women have said greatly impacted their lives. The famous diary of a girl’s spiritual maturation, taking us through teen years to becoming a wise adult woman. This journal-like account of a 19th-century girl’s life, aspirations, failures, and hopes has become a classic. She learns, on the path to womanhood, that true happiness is found in giving one’s life first to Christ and then in serving others in His name.
“This book is a treasure of both godly and womanly wisdom told with disarming candor and humility, yet revealing a deep heart’s desire to know God,” says noted Christian speaker Elisabeth Elliot. “I do not hesitate to recommend it to men, who need to understand the wives they live with, and to any woman who wants to walk with God.”

“This is a beautiful edition of a wonderful and edifying book. I read it first when I became a new Christian, and then again 23 years later. I thought I might not get as much out of it the second time, but I was wrong. There’s a reason this is a classic of Christian literature!” — Rebekah of St. Louis, Missouri
“This is a favorite in my family. Not only is it a gorgeous copy of the book, but the book itself is amazing. It’s the story of one girl’s journey to womanhood and maturity in Christ. There is humor, heartbreak, and many lessons along the way that will challenge you in your own life. And although it is written from the girl’s point of view, as it is her diary, guys can get something out of it too! We read it together as a family and my dad enjoyed it –though maybe not quite as much as we girls did.” — Jessica Alise, of Baton Rouge, Louisiana
