Wavie of the Storm
As the sole survivor of a terrible shipwreck, a small girl is nursed back to health by Antony, a grieving fisherman, who brings her home to his family. The children immediately call her “Wavie,” since she came to them from the waves. Who she is or where she comes from is a mystery, but Wavie soon steals the hearts of everyone she meets and becomes the very sunshine of Antony’s home, selflessly caring for his blind wife and befriending even the most unlikely neighbors. Not even the terrors of the stormy sea, the cruelty of others, sickness, and poverty deter Wavie from following in Christ’s ways. This is a beautifully descriptive, gently paced story that carries powerful messages of family, selflessness, triumph over trials, and God’s unfailing love.
