Overview

Shirley Hollister pushed back the hair from her hot forehead, pressed her hands wearily over tired eyes, then dropped her fingers again to the typewriter keys, and flew on with the letter she was writing.
There was no one else in the inner office where she sat. Mr. Barnard, the senior member of the firm, whose stenographer she was, had stepped into the outer office for a moment with a telegram which he had just received. His absence gave Shirley a moment's respite from that feeling that she must keep strained up to meet his gaze and not let trouble show in her eyes, though a great lump was choking in her throat and the tears stung her hot eyelids and insisted on blurring her vision now and then. But it was only for an instant that she gave way. Her fingers flew on with their work, for this was an important letter, and Mr. Barnard wanted it to go in the next mail.
As she wrote, a vision of her mother's white face appeared to her between the lines, the mother weak and white, with tears on her cheeks and that despairing look in her eyes. Mother hadn't been able to get up for a week. It seemed as if the cares of life were getting almost too much for her, and the warm spring days made the little brick house in the narrow street a stifling place to stay.

Each book I read makes me want to read all of her writings. They are all such great stories. A great find of good Christian literature.

She winds up renting a rich man's barn for her and her family to live in. What happens after that is one heaven sent pleasure after another.

I believe this was made into a movie many years ago. I would love to see that movie again. Nice story!

I love this book from Grace Livingston Hill and I bought this ebook version to compare with the ebook version published by TLC. This version is terrible--it is only marginally better than the Google books version that was scanned. There are lots of typos and errors in the text. The TLC version isn't perfect, but it has much fewer typos and errors than this version.
