This was a great story about a young lady, Louise, who gets married and she and her husband move in with HIS parents. (I know, scary!) Louise soon learns that she and her husband are the only Christians in the household, and she sets out to change that. Louise is a wonderful example of how we can live our lives in constant prayer.

This book was a great comfort and inspiration to me, as someone who has been praying fervently for members of my family and friends to become Christians. It shows what

This is a Christian writer that I heard about when we visited Chautauqua Institute this summer so I had to read one of her books. The story was wonderful and proves that the influence of one good person can have HUGE effects on those around them. It was originally written in 1880 so the prose was a little convoluted but the story is wonderful. One thought in particular toward the end of the story made a real impression on me because I do it a lot: "This is one of the awful snares Satan uses to t ...more

My mother gave me an ancient copy of this book (the copyright on the inside is 1880, and the inscription says "Elizabeth J. Hamilton '96" [she was my great-grandmother]). She was so excited because she had fallen in love with an author known simply as Pansy. She'd read my great-grandmother's books and was now buying up as many copies of Pansy's books as she could get her hands on.
I wasn't sure what all the fuss was about. All she could tell me was that it was "Christian fiction from the 1800's."

This was an interesting story written by a writer originally published in 1880. Brought back again in 1992. Its about a son marrying a well to do city girl and he a farm boy. His mother had hoped he would find a girl of their "sorts" so was not too pleased when he brings her home to the farm. Its about her farm life and adjusting to it and trying to trust her husband.
