Although this book was originally published in 1925 and the way of life was a little different then, the message of the gospel and the truth's of God's Word still stand today. Just as Joyce Radway discovered in this story how people distort God's word and twist it to say what is more 'acceptable', so we find ourselves in a culture that is still doing that. But God's word doesn't change; He is the same yesterday, today and forever. I appreciate this author's timeless message.

Joyce Radway finds herself abruptly leaving her home when her Aunt Mary dies, to flee the hardships she is enduring under her cousin and his wife, who live with her. She finds herself alone and in a town far away and will seek to become independent and determined to keep the faith and be true to who she is. But in her fleeing she will briefly encounter a troubled man she had known since childhood and that encounter will cause the man to see that his lifestyle is far from good. Through this woman's prayers and the working in the heart of this man, Darcy, you will see a profound change. But not everyone is good, and evil men are out to ruin Darcy. Can Joyce get there in time to save his life? It was a good ending to another good story by one of my favorite authors, Grace Livingston Hill. ( )

A fairly exciting story set in the 1920s, featuring an orphan who decides to make her own way in the world rather than stay with her unpleasant cousins. A bit over 'religious' with lots of introspection about following God's leading, and sinners repenting with a large amount of repetition. Perhaps more suitable for the period in which it was written; it's basically very well-written and a good plot, but the style would be rather off-putting to the majority these days. ( )

The kitchen door stood open wide, and the breath from the meadow blew freshly across Joyce Radway's hot cheeks and forehead as she passed hurriedly back and forth from the3 kitchen stove to the dining room table preparing the evening meal.
