This novel, first published in 1926, deals with issues similar to those of our current society.
Chester and Eleanor Thornton are enjoying a good, prosperous life. They are shocked when they discover that their children do not share their moral values. Chester, in an effort to change their rebellious children, takes his family to his childhood family farm in the forests of Vermont to live away from the influence of their worldly friends. Things seem to be improving until the oldest daughter Betty runs away. What will it take to bring their prodigal daughter home?
As in all of Grace Livingston Hill's books, the message of salvation and redemption through the blood of Jesus Christ is the dominant theme.
I recommend this book to those who like books with a Christian message and a clean romance.
Betty Thornton knew what she wanted, and it wasn't her father's boring lifestyle. So when Betty's father insists on moving the family to a farm in Vermont, she turns to dashing Dudley Weston - and his promises of excitement and marriage - as the answer to her problems. Then, through a terrifying chain of events, Betty finds herself abandoned in a snowstorm! Now her only hope for survival is a stranger... but can she trust him?
