One of my favorites from my teen years. Really shaped me and the decisions I made in life and romance.

This lady wrote Christian fiction before Christian fiction was cool. She is worth consideration
Luann Habecker

"Marriage had appeared at that moment to be the ultimate state of bliss toward which all things in a girls life had been in pulling her ever since she was born." pg 203 sigh

glad it was a "christian" couple struggling this time, yet once again it was tied up in a neat (happy) ending with both coming to the Lord. not always so.

-not only one person for each person
-this feeling the main character wanted...kept looking's harped on... then called love.. then abruptly "realized

These books have such a tender place in my heart--they were a huge part of my teenage years, and probably contributed a lot to the person I am today. Love you, grandma!
