Book Excerpt: 
. . .This was so against all rules and regulations that his voice was very stern as he said,—

"What is the meaning of this intrusion, Millicent? You know you are never allowed to disturb me when here."

Milly did not answer for a moment. She walked up to her uncle, her small lips tightly closed, and then, standing in front of him with clasped hands, she said,—

"I've come to tell you some dreadful news."

Sir Edward pushed aside his papers, adjusted his glasses, and saw from the pallor of the child's face and the scared expression in her eyes, that it was no light matter that had made her venture into his presence uncalled for.

"It's a dreadful surprise again," Milly continued, "but I told nurse I must tell you at once. I—I felt so bad here," and her little hand was laid pathetically on her chest.

"Well, what is it? Out with it, child! You are wasting my time," said her uncle impatiently.

A pleasant read, but nothing more.

After reading another book tonight, with a disappointing ending, I wanted something short and pleasant. I've been meaning to read this for years, but waited until I could get an unabridged copy (one not rewritten by Lamplighter!) I read it in just half an hour, but it was wonderful! I highly reco...more

I read the Lamplighter edition of this book. Like all Lamplighter books, the story is a little far-fetched, but it is a good story none the less.

A sweet and wholesome read.

This book is a sweet wholesome read about a sweet little girl who comes to live with her uncle. It is based around the bible story of 'the probable son'. I would recommend this book to young children, though I still find it an enjoyable read myself.

Such a sweet book, loved by my family and me! I love Amy Le Feuvre's books!

quaint :)

This was a sweet story, very typical of its time, with an innocent charming orphan thawing the heart of her grouchy guardian. The theme of the prodigal son however gave it an evangelistic emphasis. The prodigal son is one of my favourite Bible stories, and I thought it was neatly incorporated int...more

This book was beyond adorable! The title says it all! Sweet Millie tries to convince her uncle, Edward Wentworth that he is a "probable (prodigal) son", in a way only a little child can! So so sweet! An awesome read aloud, great for any ages.

Second reading of this and my kids love it!

This book was disappointing. I was very glad it was short. I appreciated the moral the author was trying to put into the story but it was so sappy. Uncle Edward is, I thought, overly stiff. And Millie. Purfect, never does anything truly wrong, is always repentant and always cares about everything...more
