Little is known about the origin of The Basket of Flowers, except that it is
translated from the French by someone known only as J.H. St. A. The value of this excellent
volume lies in its content, which is thoroughly God-honoring and scriptural.
The story centers on a gardener named James and his young daughter Mary. Their simple,
joyful life is interrupted when Mary is accused of theft. During the trial, Mary maintains her
innocence and tells the truth, in spite of great pressure. But Mary and her father are convicted
as thief and accomplice and begin their sentence for the crime. Throughout their sentence,
James encourages Mary with lessons from nature about the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ
and continues to prepare her for what is to come.
The constant demeanor and unchanging attitude of the characters in this little book is a source
of substantial encouragement to modern listeners.
