About the Author

Geboren am 12.6.1827 in Hirzel/Kt. Zürich, gestorben am 7.7.1901 in Zürich. Die Tochter eines Arztes und einer pietistischen Lyrikerin wuchs als viertes von sechs Kindern in einem Landarzthaushalt auf. Nach der Dorfschule und Privatunterricht beim Pfarrer erhielt sie in Zürich drei Jahre Fremdsprachen- und Musikunterricht, kam dann für ein Jahr nach Yverdon (Neuenburger See) in ein Pensionat. Ab 1845 unterrichtete sie zu Hause ihre jüngeren Schwestern und trieb autodidaktische Literaturstudien. Nach der Heirat mit dem Juristen (später Stadtschreiber) Bernhard Spyri zog sie 1852 nach Zürich.

The title is deceptive. This is just one story. Besides that it was a very thoughtful read. Watching Veronica and the other characters grow up was suspenseful and brought along lessons we can all use.

Although I was not as connected to the setting or characters as in Spyri's other stories I did greatly enjoy this. I wish more modern writers wrote with such passion and insight.

The ending was bittersweet and left me musing. There was a lot to learn about letting go of bitterness and holding onto love.

This was an interesting story, but when it comes to battles and rowdiness and people unconscious in a bar, this is far from being a children story. I wish I had known because I would not have read the book. Of course the moral is good the villain gets what he deserves. It is very interesting to see the difference between the American and European view of moral values. In fact I was mislead from the other review about the story being for mature children of 10 or over, it would rather be 16 or over.

This is a very good book for mature children. Perhaps ages ten and up. It has excellent values and would be very good to
read as a family. If it was read in that environment with an adult to explain some of the finer points, even smaller children could enjoy it.
