"As the election of 1860 draws near and political tensions between the North and South threaten to escalate into a full-scale war, Corrie Belle Hollister finds herself thrust into the political arena. Her reputation as California's Woman Reporter and her vain attempts to help Colonel John Fremont in the presidential election of 1856 have brought her to the attention of the leaders of California's new Republican Party. And the handsome young political aide, Cal Burton, helps to convince Corrie that Lincoln, and even the nation itself, depend upon the influence she can wield through her speaking and writing. Mounting conflict within the Hollister clan and in the nation at large bring Corrie to the realization that the decisions she makes could change her life forever"--Amazon.com, veiwed April 20, 2012.… (more)

Every time I read these books again I get something else out of it. I didn't know Abraham Lincoln faced 3 Democratic opponents in 1860. I didn't know the Republican Party was so young then either. I did know that Southern Democrat slave owners controlled most of the congress leading up to the civil war either. Great research, great historical backdrops for this series of books. Corrie goes through a lot, gets her heartbroken, becomes well known all the way to President Lincoln's invitation in the final chapter. ( )

Book description
When Corrie Belle Hollister and her younger brothers and sisters unexpectedly found their father on the streets of Miracle Springs, their shocking reunion was tentative at best. It would take the full story of My Father's World for them to discover each other in their hearts and to start to become the family God wanted them to be.Daughter of Grace shows the developing relationships between the reunited Hollisters. And many things in Miracle Springs change: the new church gets built, a school is opened, Pa Hollister settles into his role as father, and the Hollister cabin becomes a home. But the biggest change occurs in Corrie as she matures into womanhood thanks, especially, to Mrs. Parish.Pa Hollister rightly concludes that the children need a mother's care. But when he makes his choice, Corrie's world is once again shaken.
