When they arrived in New York City, they became separated and never saw each other again. I would love to know what became of that long-lost brother of my great-great granddad's and what both young men did to try to find each other. Our branch of the family ended up farming in Southeast Kansas. I can't help but wonder what happened to the other branch of the family.(less)

Loved these characters so much. Totally captivated me. Certain passages contained too much description for me, but I can forgive that when the story and the characters capture my heart. I didn't want it to end!

“The first time you see your grown-up little miss looking back at you from a sea of white chiffon or beaded satin glory, indeed your heart will skip a beat. You’ll find yourself blinking back tears. That elusive someday has suddenly become now. Your little girl—your jewel—is going to be a bride.”
Cheryl Barker, Mother of the Bride: Refreshment and Wisdom for the Mother of the Bride

“Honest but gentle communication from the beginning is key.”
Cheryl Barker, Mother of the Bride: Refreshment and Wisdom for the Mother of the Bride

“Let go of your daughter with grace and you'll find her calling on you with joy.”
Cheryl Barker, Mother of the Bride: Refreshment and Wisdom for the Mother of the Bride

“We all have scars, my beautiful one. They make us who we are, and if we let them, they bring us together.”
Jocelyn Green, The Mark of the King

“Look closely for the fingerprints of God's faithfulness throughout the seasons of your life.”
Nancy Kay Grace, The Grace Impact

“That was his favorite thing about books—they took you off to other people’s lives an’ places, but you could still set in your own chair by th’oil heater, warm as a mouse in a churn.”
Jan Karon, Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good

“What does a lighthouse do? I ask myself. It never moves. It cannot hike up its rocky skirt and dash into the ocean to rescue the foundering ship. It cannot calm the waters or clear the shoals. It can only cast light into the darkness. It can only point the way. Yet, through one lighthouse, you guide many ships. Show this old lighthouse the way.”
Lisa Wingate, The Prayer Box

“Music... will help dissolve your perplexities and purify your character and sensibilities, and in time of care and sorrow, will keep a fountain of joy alive in you.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer
