Martin and Margot by Amy Le Feuvre
Martin and Margot, two French children, traveled to England to stay with their aunt. Margot was selfish and vain for attention and demanded that affection be shown to her. Uncle Duncan's heroism became a model to teach Christ's sacrifice on the cross. French words and phrases are mixed into the story, with the English translation footnoted. An important verse is John 15:13—Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
