Wanzalara's Cottage consists of three interconnected tales: Wendie's Tears; The Witch of Darkwood Forrest; and Trouble in the Forest flow together into a heart-wrenching story of misery that culminates in joy. Wanzalara's Cottage illustrates God's goodness in the face of human cruelty, and also that wicked people can be redeemed. It is gratifying to the author that Part One, Wendie's Tears, has helped a number of people deal with their anger toward God, engendered by abuses suffered early in life. Part Two, The Witch of Darkwood Forest, illustrates the fact that God's power is greater than the power of the enemy of our souls. Part Three, Trouble in the Forest, reveals how one life can influence another and how God changes lives. Wanzalara's Cottage is an engaging read that gives pause to think about significant life issues.

This title is also called The Negro Servant. "The Cottage Conversation" is a narrative about contentment in poverty. "A Visit to the Infirmary" involves a dying old man that is very thankful and wants nothing more but grace to praise the Lord.
