This Christian story from 1911 is just simply delightful. It literally made me laugh out loud AND ugly cry. So many emotions! Fans of Jane Austen should find themselves lost in this heart-warming tale. And, if you enjoy it as much as I think you will, be sure to check out "The Rosary" by the same author. Both books deserve a lot more attention. (Pip Elkins)
