    • Very light reading I love this author. may not be everyone's cup of tea (old-fashioned, conservative Christian writing) but when I'm looking for a light, comfort read - this is one of the authors I turn to.


    • This is a great story, written around the turn of the century about a young girl, burdened with cares of this world and pretending to be something she is not. She is consequentially miserable and begins to see that without Christ, her life is vain. A sweet story, simply told, the message invaluable.


    • This old-fashioned and simple story focuses on Ester, a Christian girl who was so irritable around the house in her daily life that her younger, unsaved sister didn't see her own need for Christ because she never saw that Christian belief had changed her older sister for the better. Yikes! That was convicting! Ester thought she was "good," but she wasn't letting Christ control her attitude in the trivial day-to-day events of her life. I desire my family to see Christ in me, not just hear me talk [...]


    • I've just recently been introduced to Isabella Alden's books. I read "Ester Ried” for the first time this year and really enjoyed it as I am encouraged anew to fulfill each task as for Christ. Ester is not a pious, angelic girl who is nearly perfect. She is just a normal girl with everyday experiences which I’m sure most of us can relate to, though the book was written in the 1800’s. I highly recommend this author for helping us to put our Christian faith to "work."


    • This book was SO good! It was incredibly convicting and yet also encouraging. I pretty much never cry with books (unless I'm laughing too hard) but the tears just kept coming with this one. It's one of those books that I'm going to tell my friends "You HAVE to read this! It was SO good. I was crying for a full ten minutes after I finished it!" ;)


    • Ester’s story reminds us all how important our Christian witness is and not to waste any of our time here on earth. But it is also a story of “2nd chances” and of redeeming what the Lord has given us. This one really inspired me in my walk with Christ and how every word and every action do count in my witness for Christ.


    • I read this book when I was 15 years old. Wonderful book. It's one of my absolute favorites.I not listened to this book, however it was read for LibriVox by TriciaG: librivox/ester-ried-by-isa Tricia is a good reader.


    • Love this author. Great story, though slow in spots. Isabella Alden throws in a surprise in the story which catches you off guard. Must read this one before any others in the Ester Reid series or it will spoil the others.


    • Most beautiful, convicting, sweet book that I have ever read. Seriously my new favorite book. Okay, okay, so it's kinda sad, but it's just sooo good.


    • An old-fashioned Christian book about how a girl gives her life to Christ. A good book if you like that sort of thing which I do.







    • I cried through the last chapter. What a charge was given to pray for younger siblings and to do our best to not stand in the way of them coming to the Savior. I would recommend this book over and over again! I have already loaned my copy out to a friend. The first chapter is hard to get through, but after that it is hard to pry it out of one's hands.
