Paula the Waldensian by Eva Lecomte

Setting: Villar-Pelice, France in the ?late 1800s or early 1900s
Summary: Into the home of an interesting but self-centred family in old France comes Paula, a 10 year old orphaned cousin, from the Waldensian Valley. Though she had lived simply on a farm, Paula had been brought up to know and love the Lord Jesus and read the Scriptures. Her Lord and His Word are the centre of her life. This causes many complications, for her cousins’ home is one where “religion” was a forbidden subject and Paula soon is forbidden from reading her precious Bible.
Despite these troubles, Paula’s loving obedience, friendliness and charm, her overflowing love for everyone she meets, wins the hearts of all, family and neighbours alike, and causes many a change in the village. Follow the story of the family during the five years Paula lived with them and the impact which she had on her cousins – selfish Lisita (9), arrogant Louis (10), studious Rosa and crippled Catalina (18) – and her uncle and their servant, Teresa.
Message: The gospel is clearly presented throughout this book and the love of God, His care and concern for each of His creatures. His holiness and the need of complete obedience is another theme.
Reading level: 12 and above. (Very confident readers of 10 years may also enjoy it but the print is small.)
Other: Originally written in French.
Bible version: KJV
