I liked the story line of this book. It was an uplifting story of how God can and will work things out for good, even when things look there bleakest.

Marjorie Wetherill has always known she was adopted. But when her adopted father and then her mother pass away, who Marjorie dearly loved, she discovers a secret about her adoption that she never knew. Her adopted mother left her a letter explaining the circumstances of the adoption and now Marjorie sets out to find this family she thought never wanted her, as she has discovered that just wasn't true.

When Marjorie arrives at the home of her birth parents she discovers that her wealthy lifestyle is something that her real family has never known. But Marjorie doesn't let wealth stand in the way of her staying and helping this family she quickly learns to love. The love of a family is much more important than wealth, although she uses the money she has for good. It was an uplifting story that I enjoyed reading all the way through. ( )

Rich girl, separated from her twin sister at birth, goes in search of her real family. Finds them in dire straits, and uses her faith (and her wealth!) to save the day. Like most of GLH, a good old fashioned morality tale, less preachy than most. ( )
