Overview

The only possession Miss Amethyst Noble loves as much as the antique brooch she wears at her throat is Noble House-a symbol of freedom, faith, and a family history proudly and inextricably entwined with the history of a nation. For a hundred and forty years, Noble House has been a place of shelter, hope, and healing in Cambridge, Mississippi. A place of miracles.

When she discovers her dissolute son has designs to sell the ancestral home out from under her, Miss Amethyst-ninety-three years old and as sharp as eve- isn't about to let that legacy go. If her son is lost to her, there's still her granddaughter. Little Am, who had once held such sweet promise, but the gentle, good-natured child has mutated in her teenage years into something else altogether. But whatever it takes, Little Am is going to know that the Noble family heritage is worth fighting for.

    FANTASTIC !!!

    I do NOT agree with the critics concerning the negative things they said. This was probably one of THE BEST of all Christian novels -- more 'meat' and storyline and less sweetness than many writers give you. It is a smooth as silk read which you can't put down -- a MUST for Christian women that want something different.

    Great Book

    This book was heartwarming. I did not want to put it down. As the author went through each generation, you could see the times changing. And the ending wasn't disappointing or a cliff hanger. If you enjoy good christian reading, you will be pleased with this book...I know that I was!
