Overview

The night was hot and dark, for the moon rose late. The perfume of the petunia bed hung heavy in the air, and the katydids and crickets kept up a continual symphony in the orchard close to the house. Its music floated in at the open window, and called to the girl alluringly, as she sat in the darkened upper room patiently rocking Emmeline's baby to sleep in the little wooden cradle.

The day had been long and full of hard work, but now as soon as the baby slept Phoebe would be free for a while before bedtime.
Unconsciously her foot tapped faster on the rocker in her impatience to be out, and the baby stirred and opened his round eyes at her, murmuring sleepily...

    Excellent!

    Great story with some contemporary issues such as abuse, stalkiing. Hardworking characters, friendhips across social status. Classic Grace Livingston Hill but more "complete" in it's story detail and plot than some that I've read.
