Hesba Stretton (1832-1911) was the nom de plume of Sarah Smith, an English author of children's literature. The name Hesba came from the initials of her siblings. She was the daughter of a bookseller from Wellington, Shropshire, but around 1867 she moved south and lived at Snaresbrook and Loughton near Epping Forest and at Ham, near Richmond, Surrey. Her moral tales and semi-religious stories, chiefly for the young, were printed in huge quantities, and were especially widespread as school and Sunday school prizes. She won wide acceptance in English homes from the publication of Jessica's First Prayer in 1867. She was a regular contributor to Household Words and All the Year Round during Charles Dickens' editorship, and wrote upwards of 40 novels. Her other works include Children of Cloverley (1865), Little Meg's Children (1868), In Prison and Out (1880), No Place Like Home (1881), The Soul of Honour (1898) and Hester Morley's Promise (1899).

I received my first copy of "Jessica's First Prayer" on Feb. 2, 1943, for my 11th birthday, inscribed with a lovely poem in Betty Brown's beautiful handwriting:

I will not wish thee riches nor
the glow of greatness, but that
wherever thou go some weary
heart shall gladden at thy smile,
or shadowed life know sunshine for a while.
And so thy path shall be a track of light,
like angels' footsteps passing through the night.
Since then, I know that the words are from an unknown author and are written on a church wall ini Upwaltham, England.
My little copy of the book went through a house fire, but only the edges are singed. It's fragile, but still readable. Now I want to have a more durable copy, though, so I came to Amazon to seek one. I'm thrilled to have found it is still in print and I can have it!

To say that the little book made a difference in my life would be an understatement. It instilled a sense of what faith should be and contrasted with what religion frequently is.
Betty was a friend of my much older siblings. She became the "Texas Mother of the Year" one year before her premature death; she obviousy left a positive effect on one young life during hers.

Background: Jessica's First Prayer is a very important historical book that was released around the same time as Alice in Wonderland, and that was a best selling book, easily outselling Alice. It made a huge impact on the face of child neglect and abuse in England, and was a spark leading to a major shift in how children were treated.

Story: It is a short book and in spite of having a very big impact on such a major issue in Victorian England, it is very family friendly. I read it aloud to my four girls (10 y/o and younger) and they really enjoyed it. The story is really good and will touch your heart. It also touches some issues in the Christian church as well, and hopefully it will help some people to rethink how they look at strangers in the church.

Rating: I would love to give this book 5 stars, but after listening to the dramatization of the book (Jessica's Journey) done by Lamplighter Theater ( lamplighter.net ) there's a difference between this story and the potential of what it could have been through fleshing out the story and adding more depth.

Ultimately though, it is an amazing story and well worth the price!

I read this book with my 9 year old and my 6 year old. We found it very touching and kindhearted. It gives a good example of helping the least among us in the spirit of true Christianity. Also, it shows how self-introspection can lead us to truth about ourselves, giving us great opportunity for change if necessary. Keep in mind, however, this book is written in a different period of time and may require some insight from parents about class/station of this period in England. Also, it was a good vocabulary booster.

This is a beautiful story of applying the words of the Lord Jesus in practical life and finding Him faithful.

We loved this story, along with "Jessica's Mother." Excellent story-telling and we highly recommend this to others looking for quality children's literature.

What a sweet and lovely story.
My kids loved this story. The main character challenges the thinking of an adult in the,story and still chooses to love and be loved despite her circumstances.
