Ruth Burnham is a devoted wife and mother--and yet life is far from peaceful.
When God healed her infant son of a terrible illness, Ruth determined to live the resolved of faith born from that wondrous event. Sadly, her husband and his two socialite daughters had no sympathy with the desires that filled her soul.
Soon the problem with which her married life had begun--"How shall two walk together except they be agreed?"--leads to ever increasing conflicts in her family. Weary and disheartened, Ruth feels caught in a struggle she does not understand.
Then God opens her eyes, and Ruth sees with awful clarity that she hasn't been an effective or faithful Christian witness to her family. In response, she surrenders to God to be used as he wills . . . and life at the Burnham house will never be the same!
Heartwarming stories of faith and love by Grace Livingston Hill's aunt--Isabella Alden. Each book is similar in style and tone to Hill's and is set in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
