In Chronicles of a Child, we follow the life of a child named Bessie. We are allowed to see life through the eyes of a child. Sometimes she seems to be wise and somewhat mature for her age. Other times, she just wants to be loved by her mother and treated like a child. She gives us insight on how children experience and process life. Bessie helps us to understand that children take in everything—they take on the problems of the adults in their life. Sometimes they even take on the blame. Will Bessie overcome her guilt?
